Alsace is one of the 27 regions of France and is located next to Germany and Switzerland. The best way to discover this region, which is famous for its wine, is to follow the Alsace Wine Route by car. The Alsace Wine Route brings you along vine yards and flowery lanes to medieval castles, Renaissance houses and charming villages. The entire Alsace Wine Route is 170km long and my personal highlights of the Alsace Wine Route are:
Eguisheim, France’s newest favorite village, has a picturesque old town with fountains, a castle and colorful old houses.
Located 9km from Colmar, Kaysersberg is famous for the ruins of its castle, as well as its gastronomy and the painted half-timbered houses.
Riquewihr, one of the most beautiful villages in France, is famous for its Riesling and its historical architecture.
Known as the capital of Alsatian wine, the third largest city in the Alsace region is famous for its well preserved old town and museums.
