“This is an excellent tour with beautiful towns, villages and countryside as well as the impressive H-Koenigsbourg castle - although relatively expensive it was well worth the money for what is virtually a private tour (only 7 people) with our tour guide (Florence) giving a very informative and interesting commentary. ...Keith M., United Kingdom – See more reviews
What To Expect
Depart for the beautiful town of Colmar. Discover the charm of the old town, its prestigious monuments, the Pfister house, the Koïfhus, Saint Martin collegiate church, and the picturesque neighborhoods of small Venice or of the tanners.
Then depart for the most beautiful village of Eguisheim. Surrounded by vineyards, the narrow and concentric streets highlight the architectural merits of its half-timbered houses, lovingly decorated with flowers. After a walk in the village participate in a wine tasting session to discover the world renowned Alsace wines in a typical winery.
Your tour then continues on to the beautiful town of Riquewirh. Surrounded by ramparts, the village has been very fortunate to survive war and destruction. Its tiny streets, fortified walls and old houses have preserved their 16C splendor virtually intact, making for remarkable architectural harmony. You will have free time for personal discovery and lunch.
After lunch you will follow the breathtaking Alsace 'Wine Route'. Located between the Rhine valley and the Vosges mountain range, the 60 year old route winds across the slopes for more than 170 kms. The itinerary leads across rows of undulating, vine-covered hills, and through quaint villages with narrow streets and charming flower-decked houses clustered around the local church steeple.
Finally, reach Haut Koenigsbourg castle. Here, follow your guide for a tour of this mighty fortress that overlooks the valley. Built in 12th century, the Castle occupied a strategic position controlling the wine and wheat routes to the North and the salt route that came from the East. Afterwards, return to Strasbourg to finish the tour.
