1 miles/2 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.
2 miles/4 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.
4 miles/7 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
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.
6 miles/9 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.
7 miles/11 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!
7 miles/11 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.

Domaine Pierre Adam
Perhaps you'd like to
try a bed and breakfast right next to the vineyards, owned by a wine
maker, and with nicely decorated, contemporary style rooms. If so, you
might want to check out Domaine Pierre Adam. Each room has a balcony or a
patio. Breakfast is included.
Aux Armes de France
How about a hotel with an excellent
traditional french restaurant, the Hotel aux Armes de France might be
just what you are looking for. Rooms are rather large and decorated in a
somewhat old fashioned style. The restaurant was once a Michelen
starred restaurant, but has chosen to offer its high quality menus
without so much of the "fluff" that is necessary to be a starred
LaGrange Prestige Le Domaine du Golf
Instead of hotels in Ammerschwihr, how about an vacation rental apartment. The Lagrange Prestige Le Domaine du Golf has studio, 1 and 2
bedroom apartments available at very reasonable prices. Each apartment comes with a kitchenette. The apartments are simple and
clean, nothing luxurious. There is also an indoor swimming pool and a
golf course (very rare in France).
A l'Arbre Vert
A l'Arbre Vert is a restaurant with a few rooms available, so much more
like a bed and breakfast than a hotel in Ammerschwihr. The rooms are
large and decorated in an old fashioned way, but clean. Breakfast, WiFi
and parking are available. The restaurant is nice with reasonable
