Half Day Exploration Of Alsace Countryside And Villages

Tour the Charming Villages of Riquewihr and Kaysersberg

Get Familiar with the Culture in Hunawihr

What to expect

Leave Colmar for the Alsace countryside and visit some of the most beautiful villages in the area.

You will visit the 2017 Preferred Village of the French, Kaysersberg with a guided walking tour and some free time for personal discovery. The highlights of the village include remarkable architecture, a unique Medieval charm, its location set amid the Alsace vineyard - in short one of the most picturesque villages of Alsace!

You will also discover the Unique Alsace Wine Route and stop along the way for great photo opportunities. This famous Wine Route of France proudly winds through Alsace from North to South for more than 170kms. Along the way, it is more than 1000 winemakers that create some of the most aromatic white wines of France. The Wine Route is also lined with Castles, Renaissance Buildings and picture-perfect charming villages.

You will then arrive in Riquewihr, an incredible Alsace Gem for a guided walking tour of this magnificent small town. 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 finally reach Hunawihr a village known for its numerous artisan shops and multiple cultural landmarks. Situated along the Alsace Wine Route, the Village is classified as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. This charming, typical Alsatian village boasts numerous architectural treasures and unusual sights: 16th-century houses, a 15th/16th century fortified Church and cemetery that overlook the village and that could eventually serve as a refuge during attacks, a Renaissance Town Hall and so much more.
