Discover the beautiful landscapes of Alsace and journey along the famous Alsace Wine Route. Marvel at historical houses decked in flowers at picturesque villages such as Colmar, Riquewihr and Eguisheim. Go to the Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg and more
What to Expect
Depart Strasbourg and journey to the beautiful town of Colmar, known for its prestigious monuments, the German Renaissance Maison Pfister, the German Gothic Koïfhus (also known as the "Ancienne Douane), the 13th to 14th-century Église Saint-Martin and the picturesque neighborhoods of Little Venice (la Petite Venise) and the former quarters of fishmongers and tanners.
Next, go to the village of Eguisheim, surrounded by vineyards. Explore the narrow and concentric streets that highlight the architectural merits of its half-timbered houses, lovingly decorated with flowers. Participate in a wine tasting session to discover the world-renowned Alsace wines in a typical winery.
Continue to the picturesque town of Riquewihr, surrounded by ramparts enclosing tiny streets and old houses that have preserved their 16th-century splendor virtually intact. Get some free time to explore independently and find a nice place for lunch.
Then, follow the breathtaking Alsace Wine Route between the Rhine Valley and Vosges Mountains. The 60-year-old route winds across the slopes for more than 170 kilometers. See undulating vine-covered hills, and venture through quaint villages of narrow streets and charming flower-decked houses clustered around local church steeples.
Finally, go to the Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, where your guide will take you on a tour of the mighty fortress overlooking the valley. Built in the 12th century, the castle occupied a strategic position controlling the wine and wheat routes to the north and the salt route that came from the east. Then, return to Strasbourg for the end of the tour services.
