This small group half-day trip to authentic Alsace villages and small towns departs from Strasbourg and heads towards the Northern Alsace Wine Route. As you drive along this scenic Route, you will reach some of the most beautiful villages located in the area that are surrounded by vineyards.
One of your first stops will be the village of Barr. This superb Alsace village that has retained parts of its medieval walls, was located on the salt route. Unknown from many tourists, it is one of our preferred destinations. Since it is located off the beaten tracks, the limited number of visitors make it a real treat if you want to get the real feel of Alsace. Its well preserved historical city center is dotted with a great number of traditional flower decked half timbered houses located along the twisted cobbled streets.
Other great options that your guide can include are the villages of Mittelbergheim – with its Rue Principale, Gothic Churches and geranium covered walls or Andlau and its famous abbey that dates back to the 9th century.
After the tour, it will be time to return to Strasbourg.
