Full description
You’ll depart Strasbourg in the morning and make your first stop on this day-long tour in Colmar. Discover the charm of the old town, and visit the Pfister house, the Koïfhus, St. Martin’s Collegiate Church, and the picturesque neighborhoods of Little Venice. Explore the lovely village of Eguisheim, surrounded by vineyards. Admire its narrow streets, and the half-timbered houses with their colorful flowers.  Continue on to the fortified town of Riquewirh. Surrounded by ramparts, the village has survived wars and remained intact. See its tiny streets, fortified walls, and 16th-century houses, admiring the architectural harmony. You’ll have free time to explore the town and have lunch. After lunch you’ll follow the scenic Alsace Wine Route. Situated between the Rhine valley and the Vosges mountain range, the 60-year-old route winds across hilly slopes for over 170 kilometers. When you reach Haut Koenigsbourg Castle your guide will take you on a tour of the mighty fortress that overlooks the valley. Built during the 12th century, the Castle occupied a strategic position controlling the wine and wheat routes to the north and the salt route from the east.

This was a great all day trip! Went to three charming villages plus a castle. The van was very comfortable and all of the seats could easily hear what was being said as we passed through interesting areas. Jerome, our guide, was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. Definitely recommend this day trip when in the Alsace area!

Excellent opportunity to get to know some places of the beautiful Alsace. If you have a day to meet, it is the best option. Pauline, the guide, a charming person and always attentive to the needs and desires of the group. He provided super interesting information about the places visited.

Tour highly recommended. Our guide Brigitte speaks very clear English, is very kind and showed us and visited everything that was possible to see in 9 hours. The villages are fabulous, all very beautiful, there was no lack of stops for panoramic photos and he gave us excellent suggestions for lunch. The Haut-Kœnigsbourg castle is enchanting and this season (January) it would have been too complicated for us to reach if not with a guided tour.
