1. From Colmar: Alsace Villages Tour and Wine Tasting
Depart Colmar and journey in a small group to the traditional small town of Eguisheim. 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, continue your tour to the fortified town of Riquewihr, passing by the village of Turckheim, where you can admire many traditional Alsace style houses, overflowing with flowers. In Riquewihr, stroll through the tiny streets lined with old houses that have preserved their 16th-century splendor. Get some free time to explore on your own and find a nice spot for lunch. Then, travel along the breathtaking Alsace wine route between the Rhine Valley and Vosges Mountains. Get amazing views of the undulating, vine-covered hills and quaint villages with narrow streets and flower-decked houses. Arrive at the medieval Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg overlooking the valley. Learn how the castle once controlled the wine and wheat routes to the north and salt route from the east.
