Bergheim is a commune in the Haut-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

It is a completely fortified town and has an ancient and remarkable church, as well as magnificent towers and walls. The entire population was wiped out by two wars and the plague in the 17th-18th centuries. To replace the population, thousands of people from other countries were invited to immigrate to Bergheim. The majority of people who immigrated at that times were Swiss, German, Hungarian, Austrian, or Romanian.

The city runs on tourism and the grape vines that surround the city and the region.
