Dambach la Ville*
2 miles/3 km
Dambach la Ville
is the sort of Alsace wine village where you can walk around anywhere
and see something really beautiful, medieval city walls and gates,
beautiful old homes and a very interesting chapel. And there is a train
station, so you can try one of the 30 wine producers in Dambach la Ville

4 miles/7 km
is known for its Riesling, so if you're a fan, you'll want to stop by.
Speaking of which, Scherwiller has a train station so you can drink to
your heart's content! And you can make a 45 minute walk to two castles,
the Ortenbourg and Ramstein from the village.
5 miles/8 km
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

in Selestat in 1441. But it's also a beautiful town to wander around
in on your Alsace vacation. Check out the Tuesday morning market if you
7 miles/11 km
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.
8 miles/13 km
(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
