Daytrips from a Hotel in Ribeauvillé
If you're thinking of staying in a hotel in Ribeauvillé, you'll need a car...
Because the train stop listed as Ribeauvillé is actually a few miles or kilometers away from the actual village.
And most of the villages nearby don't have a train station either...
are quite a few villages close enough to make for a nice ride on your
bicycle, but be aware that this area gets a lot of car traffic, so it
might not be as serene as other areas on the wine road.
Distances given are the approximate distances from the center of Ribeauvillé.
Villages with a * have a train stop or train station.
2 miles/3 km
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.
3 miles/5 km
is a quiet little village on the Alsatian Wine Road just past
Ribeauvillé. 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.
3 miles/5 km
is considered one of the most beautiful villages in France because
visiting Riquewihr is like stepping hundreds of years back into history.
Somehow this wine road village managed to survive through countless
wars (including World War Two) unscathed. So enjoy it, but remember that
there are a lot of other people planning to visit Riquewihr with you
especially around July, August, and December.
5 miles/8 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.
6 miles/10 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.
6 miles/10 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...
7 miles/11 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
