Rosheim hotels might be a good choice for you if you love medieval architecture...
Because Rosheim has some of the oldest intact buildings (from the 1100s) in all of Alsace and some really beautiful Alsatian architecture as well.
Not to mention it has not one but two medieval city walls (the second one was built to accommodate the growing village).
Rosheim also has a train station if you'd prefer to take the train and is a great base if you would like to stay in a small wine road village with a train station.
If you're staying in Rosheim hotels, you'll be near military history sites, Celtic and Roman sites, and of course Alsatian wine road villages.
Hopefully you'll find everything that you need to know about Rosheim hotels and Alsace...
But if you don't find what you're looking for...ask me a question about your Alsace vacation here!
If medieval architecture and drinking wine appeal to you, then you may want to take a look at Rosheim hotels...
For those looking to see Alsace by train, Rosheim is a good base for anyone who wants to stay on the wine road in a little village. And there are quite a few interesting stops nearby whether you are taking the train or driving.
Distances given are the approximate distances from the center of Rosheim France.
Villages with a * have a train stop or train station.
4 miles/6 km
Obernai is a small town or very large village on the wine road. They've been making wine for over 13 centuries now (starting in the 700s at least). If you loved Colmar, you will really love Obernai! It's a very beautiful town and the vineyards are much closer than in Colmar. Obernai is also the birthplace of the patron saint of Alsace, Sainte Odile.
4 miles/7 km
Ottrott is a beautiful wine village in Alsace with quite a lot of castle ruins if you're interested... It's also the closest village to Mont Sainte Odile and you can walk to it in about an hour or drive. Ottrott is also famous for its Pinot Noir (they've been making it since the 1100s).
5 miles/8 km
Mutzig is a small wine producing village in Alsace near Molsheim that is probably more famous for its beer than wine (although it has some excellent wine as well). And for those of you who love military history, there is Fort Mutzig built in the very late 1800s by the German Empire. If World War One history appeals to you, this might be a good stop for you.
5 miles/8 km
Molsheim is best known as the home of Bugatti. You can still tour the Bugatti Foundation in Molsheim or you can go just next door to Dorlisheim where their new Bugatti car factory is now located. But Molsheim is still a wine road village and its medieval city walls are still standing...right next to vineyards even!
7 miles/11 km
After you pass Barr if you're on your way to Ottrott or Mont Saint Odile, you'll find the village of Heiligenstein. It's a pretty little wine village with one big difference. They produce Klevener de Heiligenstein wine (which can only be produced in that particular area). It's related to the Traminer family, so if you enjoy Gewurztraminer, you might want to try this historic variety in Alsace.
8 miles/13 km
Barr is a wine road village in Alsace that attracts fewer tourists AND has a train station, but it's not because it's not a beautiful little village with adorable winding cobblestone streets. So if you are looking for a quieter Alsace vacation, Barr might be for you.
9 miles/14 km
Mittelbergheim (like Riquewihr) is one of the most beautiful villages in France, but there are a lot less tourists here. Between Andlau and Barr you'll find some of the best Sylvaner wine (and many other grape varieties) in a quiet and peaceful setting.
Mont Sainte Odile
11 miles/17 km
Mont Saint Odile is a 7th century convent about a 20 minutes drive from Obernai up in the Vosges mountains with some fantastic views of Alsace. This mountain is very popular. First the Celts were here, then the Romans, and then between 680 and 690, Saint Odile founded her convent. There are some lovely short hikes where you can see intact remains from the Celts and Romans as well as a hotel and restaurant at the convent . The convent itself has been enlarged over the years and renovated many times since being built in the late 600s.
12 miles/19 km
Marlenheim is considered to be the first stop on the Alsatian wine road (or the last stop depending on which direction you are going). It's a beautiful village not far from Strasbourg and every year the town puts on a traditional Alsatian wedding on the 14th and 15th of August.
13 miles/20 km
Andlau has been making wine since Roman times when retired Roman legionaires started planting vineyards here. If you love old medieval houses, you'll see lots of them here in Andlau and if you're in the mood it's only a half day hike (3 hours average there and back) up to see two medieval castles (Haut Andlau and Spesbourg). And when you get back you'll have a good excuse to sit back and try some Alsace wine on your Alsace vacation!
La Rose d'Alsace is a small bed and breakfast in the medieval center of Rosheim. The traditional Alsatian building itself has been renovated and has 4 rooms. Breakfast and WiFi are included. Each room looks out onto a private courtyard garden. A great alternative to Rosheim hotels.
The Hostellerie du Rosenmeer is a small hotel with a fabulous restaurant in Rosheim near the train station. It's about a 15 minute walk to the medieval center of Rosheim. Breakfast and parking are available. WiFi is free of charge in the public areas of the hotel, but there is no air conditioning.
