Notable people

  • General Georges Picquart, who played a key role in the Dreyfus Affair, spent his early childhood in Geudertheim. On July 13, 2006, almost a century after the exoneration of Dreyfus, the Place de la Mairie was renamed Place General Picquart in his honour.
  • Balthazar Alexis Henri Schauenburg, (also spelled Schauenbourg), (born in Hellimer on 31 July 1748) died in Geudertheim on 1 September 1831) was a French general who served in the wars of the French Revolution and the Empire.
  • Landmarks

  • The Protestant church dates from 1842: the church tower is from the twelfth century, however.

  • Castle Schauenbourg.
  • A mill on the Zorn River.
