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.

One of the highlights of our trip! The beauty of the mountains in the background, vineyards surrounding you, and the picturesque villages you drive through is not to be missed in your vidit to Alsace. The four favorite towns were Rosheim, Obernai, Eguisheim, and Kayserberg.

Beautiful vineyards and a great drive on a sunny day with good music :) Plus the wine tasting experience added to the delight! Would strongly recommend spending time in Eguisheim, Riquewihr, Kaysersberg and Ribeauville...

From Saint-Hippolyte to Riquewihr was an amazing adventure. Unfortunately we went in "off-season" so it was pretty chilly and there weren't any grapes on the vines...but driving through, you can only picture what it would be like in the spring/summer. We only had two days to explore the area. We started by visiting Haut Koeningsbourg castle in Orschwiller, France located... More

Our Alsation Wine tour was ok but rain made it impossible to see the Heiligenstein vinyards and the town of Obernai which is at the foot of the Vosges Mountains properly. This was a pity but we did enjoy our tour of the wine cellar and the wine tasting. The wine was extremely good and much better than what we... More

A medieval treasure of the past in a countryside vineyard setting. Colourful, narrow, streets run in concentric circles from the oval outer ramparts of the old town. A wealth of architectural features, balconies, oriels, gables at odd competing angles; balconies and window boxes bursting with colour; planter boxes and pots filled with vegetation and flowers. The colourful well maintained dwellings... More
