The school of witches or Hexenschule in Alsatian is located on the Mont St Michel in the Vosges regional park, above Saint Jean Saverne.

The school of witches is a large basin of stone, four feet in diameter and two feet deep.

Many legends surround this mysterious and sacred place

The first says that the witches found themselves here before flying with their brooms. They then went to Bastberg to celebrate the Sabbath (witches night meetings during which they were organizing banquets, pagan ceremonies or orgies), accompanied by Itta, the wife of Pierre de Lutzelbourg, being deemed to be a great witch.

Another legend says that witches students sat around the pool listening to the officiating. It is also said that Celts people used the pool to celebrate the cult of Benelos, the god of the Sun. The pool served for ritual baths or for collecting the blood of animals given in sacrifice.

Close to the school of witches, there is a cave called "Cave of the Witches" or Hexenhöhle in Alsatian. This cave was occupied from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages.
Finally, still on the Mont Saint Michel, is the Heidenstadt, the city of Pagan, which is a Celtic oppidum dating from the first or second century BC.
