An incredible series of picturesque towns & villages, around 100, along this 170 km wine producing route, stretching nearly from the edges of Strasbourg (Marlenheim), down to Thann, near Mulhouse. Wonderful timber framed houses seem to line the route, each village the type you would expect to see on a chocolate box. Spectacular vineyards, plenty of wine tasting opportunites, simply... More

We walked all over Kaysersburg, happening upon a wine tasting in a very modest but great spot: Vins d'Alsace, François Stoll, rue Basse du Rempart. He explained the various wimes, the way things are done in Alsace, and how perfect a spot it is to live in. We spent a good 30 min. with this generous man. Then on to... More

One could take a couple of days to see the the villages and days more to experience the 100+ true wineries. Lovely setting, good attitude of locals toward foreigners, highest quality and upscale buildings. A true treat.

We got on the southern tip of the Vin d'Alsace Road at Mulhouse and traveled north to our hotel in Bergheim, before turning west toward Natzweiler the next day. The route is marked intermittently with nice, brown signs that read "Vin d'Alsace", but we occasionally found ourselves unsure of whether we were still on the official route at several junctures...

We stayed 2 nights in Strasbourg and 2 nights in Colmar. During that period, we visited Obernai, Barr, Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr. The picturesque villages, the vineyards and the culture of wine fulfilled our days with their beauty and charm. What a wonderful world we discover.

Medieval walled villages nestled between vinyards in the foothills and mountains - bordered by the Vosges forests. Just magical. And fabulous wines and great people.

A days trawling along the route stopping where our fancy took us. We actually preferred some of the smaller less touristy villages.
