From Thann to Marlenheim, from north to south in the direction of Colmar, a chain of scenic, floral, wine villages illustrates the richness and diversity of Alsatian vineyards. The route, of great simplicity, is enhanced by the presence of various medieval remains and is a must for all lovers of Grands Crus.
Eguisheim, Kaysersberg, Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr, Andlau, and Obernai all have strong AOC identities who organise in turn, country-style tastings, wine festivals, and harvests in a lively and friendly atmosphere.
The tour of fortified locations and castles, adorned with a beautiful showcase of green vineyards and forests, promises to be a highlight of your trip. If you can go down only one route, take the Nationale 59 to the town of Sélestat and to the famous castle of Haut-Koenigsbourg, a stone sentinel inherited from the Middle Ages, which has survived the centuries.
