Daytrips from Eguisheim Hotels
Unfortunately you'll absolutely need a car to stay in Eguisheim hotels...
Otherwise you'll have to walk or bike the approximate 2 miles or 3.5
km from the nearest train station in Herrlisheim près Colmar to your
hotel in Eguisheim.
Maybe not for you if you have a lot of luggage...
But with a car or a bike if you're up for it, you'll be just a bit south of the touristy parts of the wine road in Alsace.
And you'll certainly have quite a selection of Eguisheim hotels to choose from!
And there are some very cute wine villages (and some great wine as
well) on the southern half of the wine road that you won't likely hear
about in guide books...
Perfect for those of you looking to get off the beaten path on the Alsatian wine road!
Distances given are the approximate distances from the center of Eguisheim.
Villages with a * have a train stop or train station.
5 miles/8 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.
6 miles/9 km
Colmar 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.
7 miles/12 km
is an adorable village on the wine road with a train station, so no
problem if you taste a little too much wine here...and it's a lot less
crowded than other famous villages, but still very pretty and
interesting to visit. Take a walk in the vineyards behind the Chateau
d'Isenbourg for a fantastic view!
8 miles/13 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...
8 miles/13 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.
9 miles/15 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.
11 miles/18 km
is a small town or very large village in a valley in the Vosges
mountains that you can get to by train! It's also the birthplace of
Munster cheese. You can taste Munster cheese anywhere in Alsace, but if
you want some fresh locally made cheese, you'll have to visit the
Munster valley (and you can see how it's made too).
