What to expect

In the morning we will come and pick you up at your centrally located accommodation in Strasbourg. Meet your English speaking driver/guide who will go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then board your air conditioned vehicle and make your way to the beautiful town of Colmar. Upon arrival, follow your guide on a walking tour of one of the most beautiful small towns of France. 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, located on the Alsace wine route. 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 your 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 splendor virtually intact, making for remarkable architectural harmony. Enjoy some free time for lunch.

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, you'll reach the Haut Koenigsbourg castle. Tere, 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.
