What To Expect
Take a private tour of 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.
Visit also 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, you will have the option to participate in a wine tasting session to discover the world renowned Alsace wines in a typical winery.
You may continue on to the beautiful town of Riquewihr. 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 may depart for 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, don't miss a visit to Haut Koenigsbourg castle. 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.
