A FAIRY TALE LOCATION, and the best of Alsace wine

A region famed for wine, culture, landscape and history offers something for every traveler.

WHICH DAY TRIPS FROM STRASBOURG & COLMAR, should you take in Alsace?

From sightseeing in the scenic villages to wine tasting in historic vineyards, Alsace offers something for everyone. The Alsace region is divided into 2 administrative parts known as Haut Rhin and Bas Rhin (higher and lower Rhine regions) each having its own specificity, culture, food and heritage.

The Bas Rhin & Day Trips from Strasbourg

The Bas Rhin, of which Strasbourg is the capital, offers a great number of exciting attractions to visit, activities to partake in and of course is a fantastic departure point for many tours. The city of Strasbourg, seat of the European Parliament and Council of Europe, is already a treat just by itself with its incredible Gothic Cathedral and historic Petite France neighborhood dotted with medieval half timbered houses.

If you follow one of our guided walking tours of Strasbourg, our certified guides will surely take you to the most important landmarks of the city including the ones mentioned above. Another great option in Strasbourg is the food & wine related activities. The Alsace region is known to be one of the best when it comes to gastronomy and during our Strasbourg gourmet walking tour foie gras, wine, ginger bread and many more local specialties will be there for you to taste.

Once you have discovered the city of Strasbourg, it is time to head out and visit the most incredible sites that the Bas Rhin has to offer. The most famous of these is without a doubt the Alsace Wine Route or route des vins d’Alsace. One of the oldest in France, this wine route stretches for more than 70 kms and is lined with numerous, family owned wineries.

Both our half day and full day wine tours departing from Strasbourg are the perfect opportunity for you to discover these amazing Alsace wine makers. Another top attraction in this area is the Haut Koenigsbourg Castle that is included in our full day Pearls of Alsace tour. Built in the 12th century it dominates the Alsace plains and is one of those ideal locations for a superb travel photo.

The Haut Rhin & Day Trips from Colmar

The Haut Rhin, of which Colmar is the capital, also offers a great deal of unique attractions and activities. The small town of Colmar is one of the most exquisite of France with its historic center, grand rue, medieval half timbered houses such as the “maison des tetes”, the Pfister House and small winding canals. The town also houses one of the most impressive 16th century paintings – the Issenheim Altarpiece.

Outside of Colmar, the choices for day tours are numerous. The Route du Vin is an option for all the wine lovers and we organize both private and shared wine tours departing from Colmar. The area is also dotted with traditional villages such as the medieval villages of Eguisheim, Kaysersberg or Riquewihr that you can visit on our villages tour departing Colmar and that alone make for a great excursion.

With the Vosges Mountains located just a short drive away, a tour to that area is synonymous to local gastronomy as this is where Munster cheese is produced as well as some of the most tasty local spirits and eau-de-vie. Discover the charms of The ‘route des Crêtes’ that also a must as this ridge road is one of the most impressive of France.
