4 miles/7 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!
5 miles/8 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...
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.
5 miles/8 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.
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.
8 miles/13 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).
8 miles/12 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.
Looking for a Hotel in Turckheim?
Auberge du Brand
Charming and quaint hotel rooms in an old fashioned former wine maker's
house. Rooms in this hotel are traditionally decorated and
most of them have WiFi. There is a restaurant and parking is very close
by. Good location in the center of town. Very friendly hotel staff.
Hotel Berceau du Vigneron
A cute little 2 star hotel and restaurant with simply decorated rooms.
Prices are a bit more reasonable here as they continue to redecorate the
rooms one by one in this hotel. WiFi everywhere. Parking
nearby. Friendly staff.
Hotel des Deux Clefs
If you ever walk through the village, you will stop and take photos of
this hotel. It's just that beautiful. I dare say it's the most beautiful
building or hotel in Turckheim. Very traditional in style and nicely
decorated. The rooms are not huge because it is a historic building but
"cozy" is a good word to describe this hotel in Turckheim. WiFi,
breakfast and parking available. Friendly staff as well.
