Eguisheim 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!

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...

Kientzheim (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.

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.

Kaysersberg 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.

Munster 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).

Riquewihr 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.
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.
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.
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.
