In the Kork village church there is still a Baroque organ in the style of Silbermann, created in 1778 by Markus-Georg Stein from Durlach.
Kork is rich in beautiful half-timbered buildings, most of which date back to the 18th century.
Also worth seeing is the Kork Buehl, the historic centre, surrounded by various types of half-timbered houses. You can also find the Korker bull, a bronze cast legend figure from the forest letter of 1476.
Kork Castle, which in 1892 was the founding site of the later major epilepsy centre, is also nearby.

The Handwerksmuseum (craft museum), one of the largest museums in the region – with outlines of 15 different professions – offers interesting insights into the professional world of the past over an area of 1,700 square metres.

Regarding traffic connections, Kork is well served by the Offenburg-Strasbourg regional trains which run at frequent intervals, the TGV connection in Strasbourg (to Paris) as well as the ICE connection in Offenburg.
Quiet side roads, well-developed bike paths through nature and forests invite you to go hiking, jogging, cycling and inline skating.
