Daytrips from Your Accommodation in Munster
You won't be far away from the wine road staying in accommodation in Munster...
Munster is just a little deeper in one of the valleys in the Vosges
So your accommodation in Munster is only a few miles or kilometers from the foothills
where the wine road is.
And with a train station,
you'll have easy access to other parts of Alsace, but I recommend a car
for trips into the Vosges...and did I mention that there's skiing and
sledding in the winter not that far away from Munster...
Distances given are the approximate distances from the center of Munster.
Villages with a * have a train stop or train station.
7 miles/11 km
Linge is World War One battlefield memorial up in the Vosges mountains
in central Alsace. At this WWI memorial you must stay on the pathways
that will take you across the memorial. There is also a museum. It's in
the direction of the village of Orbey.
8 miles/13 km
is a beautiful little village on the Alsace Wine Road with a train
station! So you can drink as much as you can want... Turckheim has a
particular tradition that it has continued (with only two stops) for
hundreds years. The Nightwatchman makes his rounds (May 1st to Oct 31st)
at 10pm every night.
12 miles/19 km
is a very unique wine road village because it was built in circles (one
circle inside another circle inside another circle, etc...) and inside
those circles are some adorable little cobblestone streets just perfect
for taking photographs. And then there's the wine, there are over thirty
wine makers in this village!
12 miles/19 km
You'll probably pass Ammerschwihr
on your way from Turckehim to Kaysersberg and you will definitely see
it! It's the one with the huge tower (the Schelmenturm)... If you stop
by, you'll have a choice of over 40 wine makers to choose from as you
wander through the village. And for those of you who love to golf...
13 miles/21 km
(not Kintzheim) is a beautiful little wine road village near
Kaysersberg and it's also home to the Confrerie de Saint Etienne and
their Alsatian Wine museum. If you want to learn more about the history
of Alsatian wine and how it was produced, you might want to stop by.
13 miles/21 km
is a medium sized town right in the middle of Alsace. It's on many many
people's list of "most beautiful towns in France". The wine business
made a lot of people wealthy during the late medieval period so there
are a lot of beautiful and unique buildings to look at in Colmar.
14 miles/23 km
is a just as beautiful medieval wine road village as Riquewihr with the
added bonus of a ruined castle only a 15 minute hike away. The photo at
the very top of this webpage was taken in Kaysersberg to give you an
idea. So if you want to avoid the crowds in Riquewihr, Kaysersberg might
be a good choice for your Alsace vacation. And it's the birthplace of
Albert Schweitzer too.
