  • Returning unharmed from the Crusades, the knight Henri de Müllenheim undertook the construction of a monastery for the Hermits of Saint William, an order of mendicant monks, in this marshy neighbourhood just outside the city wall next to to docks This stone brick church angular church tries to portray a sense of order and was designed to be a meeting room for the monks. The newly established corporation of shipbuilders in the 14th century thought it would better as a local parish. After the 15 century, the Church lost prosperity and closed down. A revival started after the discovery that the angular design provided perfect acoustics. The Wilhelmer Choir, also known as the 'Chœur de Saint-Guillaume' got established and became as one of the leading choirs of the region. It has been led by several famous choirmasters, including Wilhelm Furtwangler, John Eliot Gardiner. It is highly recommended visiting choir performances.
