Immerse Yourself in Alsace's Rich Tapestry: A Villages Tour from Strasbourg

Embark on a journey through time with our exquisite half-day tour, meticulously designed to showcase the historical grandeur and cultural vibrancy of Alsace’s most enchanting villages. This bespoke excursion is tailored to appeal to a discerning audience, from the culturally curious adventurers to high-profile couples in search of an immersive exploration of Alsace's unparalleled heritage.

Elegant Beginnings: A Personalized Welcome

Your journey into the heart of Alsace begins with a warm reception from our professional, English-speaking guides, identifiable by their elegant signage featuring the tour's name and the distinguished Ophorus logo, along with personalized badges for effortless recognition. 

These experts are more than guides; they are custodians of Alsace's stories, eager to share with you the intricate tapestry of the region's history and culture. As you settle into our premium, air-conditioned vehicles—outfitted with an onboard P/A system for lucid storytelling.

The Alsace Wine Route: A Historical Voyage

Your adventure unfolds along the storied Alsace Wine Route, a pathway that has linked vineyards and villages for centuries. This scenic trail stretches over 170km, serving as the backbone of Alsace's wine legacy, with more than 1000 vintners crafting exquisite white wines in the shadow of ancient castles and Renaissance edifices. This route is not merely a road; it's a voyage through history, where each bend reveals stories of winemaking traditions passed down through generations.

Barr: A Village Carved from History and Wine

The village of Barr, nestled in the embrace of vine-clad hills near Obernai, epitomizes the Alsace wine culture. Its vineyards, a source of the region’s acclaimed Sylvaner, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer, surround an architectural heritage that tells of centuries past. The town hall and the ‘Marco Folie’ house, now a beacon of history as a museum, stand as testament to Barr’s storied past, inviting you to delve into the narrative of Alsace’s architectural evolution and vinicultural excellence.

Mittelbergheim: An Ode to Wine and Tradition

Journey to Mittlebergheim, a village where wine is the lifeblood, nestled at Mont Saint-Odile’s base. Here, the Zotzenberg grand cru reigns supreme, its presence felt in the large courtyards of wine growers' homes and the invaluable “Weinschlag” collection. Housed within the village's Renaissance town hall, this collection offers a window into centuries of viticulture, encapsulating the spirit and dedication of Alsace’s wine artisans since 1510.

Andlau: Where History Echoes Among Ancient Stones

The tour’s crescendo is the picturesque town of Andlau, a place where every stone tells a story. The Saint Peter - Saint Paul Abbatial Church, with origins tracing back to the 9th century, bears the scars and triumphs of its long history. Despite the devastations of fire and time, the church stands majestic, its Romanesque sculptures and historiated frieze a silent testament to the artistic and spiritual legacy that has permeated Andlau for centuries.

Our half-day tour from Strasbourg is an invitation to step beyond the veil of time, into the heart of Alsace’s villages, each a chapter in the region's rich historical and cultural narrative. Book your journey with us and be prepared to be transported to an era where history and heritage shape the very essence of life. This is not merely a tour; it is an odyssey through the soul of Alsace, designed for those who seek to experience its timeless allure.
