Why take this tour?

Pick-up in Strasbourg and 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 walking tour in the village your small group tour then continues 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. Free time for personal discovery and lunch. You can also ask your guide for suggestions if you would like to participate in a wine tasting.

During your Alsace day trip, you will follow the 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 Chateau du Haut Koenigsbourg Castle. Here, follow your guide for a tour of this mighty fortress that overlooks the valley. Built in the 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. After the visit return to Strasbourg.
