In 1955, substantial fragments of a large Mithraeum were unearthed in Mackwiller by Jean-Jacques Hatt, archaeologist and director of the Musée archéologique de Strasbourg. The find is still prominently displayed in that museum.
Le Mithraeum de Mackwiller a été construit au milieu du IIe siècle, sous le règne d'Antonin le Pieux, à l'emplacement d'une source déjà adorée par les indigènes. L'école de sculpteurs qui l'a décoré est celle même qui a travaillé au Mithraeum de Strasbourg-Kœnigshoffen. La pierre est aussi celle du Mithraeum de Strasbourg.
