Immerse Yourself in the Beauty of Eguisheim and Riquewihr

Embark on a day trip from Colmar, beginning with the picturesque village of Eguisheim. This traditional Alsatian village, nestled amidst vineyards, boasts narrow, concentric streets adorned with half-timbered houses delicately decorated with vibrant flowers. After a delightful stroll through the village, our journey continues to the captivating town of Riquewihr. Encircled by ancient ramparts, Riquewihr has miraculously preserved its 16th-century charm, with its narrow streets, fortified walls, and well-preserved houses, offering an enchanting display of architectural harmony. Enjoy some free time for personal exploration and savor a delectable lunch.

Embark on a Scenic Journey Along the Alsace Wine Route

After lunch, prepare to be captivated by the breathtaking Alsace Wine Route. Stretching over 170 kilometers (106 miles) between the Rhine Valley and the Vosges mountain range, this legendary route winds through vine-covered hills, leading to picturesque villages with quaint streets and charming flower-adorned houses surrounding local churches. Along the way, marvel at medieval castles that dot the landscape. Experience a delightful wine tasting session in one of these villages, where you'll have the opportunity to sample the region's renowned white wines. From Riesling to Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris to Sylvaner, Alsace wines are celebrated for their exceptional quality and distinctive flavors.

Conclude Your Journey with a Visit to Haut Koenigsbourg Castle

To conclude the day, we'll reach the majestic Haut Koenigsbourg Castle. Join your guide for a tour of this formidable fortress, which proudly overlooks the valley. Built in the 12th century, the castle held a strategic position, controlling the vital trade routes of wine, wheat, and salt. Explore its rich history and marvel at the commanding views it offers.
