Kurtzenhouse (German: Kurzenhausen) is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

Until January 1955 the commune was known by its German language name of "Kurtzenhausen".

Geography

The village is positioned about ten kilometres (six miles) south of Haguenau: the surrounding countryside is largely taken up with agriculture. Through the south-eastern side of the commune runs the departmental road RD 37, and beside that the rather indirect railway line that connects Haguenau with Strasbourg to the south.
