Looking for Rodern Hotels?


Rodern is a tiny little village (only a few hundred people here) just a few miles or kilometers from some of the most popular tourist attractions in Alsace.

They've been making Pinot Noir here since the early Middle Ages and it's worth the visit if you love it!

But this village excels at Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer too so there's something for everyone...and your children will be happy with Monkey Mountain and Cigoland nearby!

You'll also have the opportunity to hike or stroll through the vineyards, relax and enjoy the countryside nearby...

Hopefully you'll find everything that you need to know about Rodern France…

But if you don't find what you're looking for…ask me a question about your Alsace vacation here!

Day Trips from Hotels
in Rodern Alsace


Rodern is a must see for Pinot Noir lovers, because this finicky grape just isn't happy unless it's in the right location with perfect soil and weather conditions.

It's a nice compromise for families because you will be very close to some very fun activities for children (and adults as well).

You'll be close to all of the big (and often crowded) tourist sites too so you can have your peace and quiet, but quickly be in the middle of everything when you want it.

Distances given are the approximate distances from the center of Rodern.

Villages with a * have a train stop or train station.



Bergheim

3 miles/4 km

Bergheim is a quiet little village on the Alsatian Wine Road just past Ribeauville. One of the most amazing things about Bergheim is how it was managed to preserve almost ALL of its medieval city walls. You can walk around the village and see them for yourself before or after trying some of the local wine and food.



Birds of Prey Show

4 miles/6 km

Watching large birds of prey inside the courtyard of a ruined castle (that you can explore either before or after the show) is a great idea for older children (over 10). The younger ones are usually a little scared. It's all in French, but you don't need much translation for this show and it's very close to Monkey Mountain!



Ribeauvillé

4 miles/6 km

If you've already started researching where to go in Alsace, you've probably heard of Ribeauvillé. It's a beautiful wine road village with lots of medieval buildings, restaurants, shops and wine. I think Ribeauvillé is a great place to visit, although I have no idea why it is more popular than other wine road villages that are just as beautiful. There are also three castles above Ribeauvillé that you can hike up to and back in three hours if you're interested...



Kintzheim

4 miles/6 km

Kintzheim (not Kientzheim) is a pretty little wine road village in Alsace, but your kids probably aren't going to let you sit around and taste wine until you've taken them to Monkey Mountain (Montagne des Singes), the Birds of Prey show (Volerie des Aigles) and Cigoland which are just ten minutes away. And while you're at the Birds of Prey show you can tour the 13th century Kintzheim castle.



Haut Koenigsbourg

5 miles/8 km

The Haut Koenigsbourg castle was originally built in 1147 in the Vosges mountains. Like many castles it was enlarged a number of times and updated to deal with changes in warfare. But like most castles in Alsace, it was severely damaged in the Thirty Years War in the 1600s, but it was also fully restored in the 1900s. Haut Koenigsbourg will give you a very clear picture of life in a medieval castle in Alsace.



Monkey Mountain

5 miles/8 km

If you're traveling with kids of any age, here's something fun for them...feeding monkeys at a monkey sanctuary near Haut Koenigsbourg! It's a great way to spend a few hours of your Alsace vacation. Then you can head on over to the Birds of Prey Show nearby.



Hunawihr

5 miles/8 km

If you find yourself in Riquewihr or that area of the Wine Road in Alsace and you want to get away from the crowds, head over to Hunawihr. It's right next door to Riquewihr and it's beautiful and quiet. You'll find great wine and scenery in a quiet and peaceful setting.
