If you've already started researching where to go in Alsace, you've probably heard of Ribeauvillé.
It's a beautiful wine road village with lots of medieval buildings,
restaurants, shops and wine. I think Ribeauvillé is a great place to
visit, although I have no idea why it is more popular than other wine
road villages that are just as beautiful. There are also three castles
above Ribeauvillé that you can hike up to and back in three hours if
4 miles/6 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.

(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
Birds of Prey Show
5 miles/8 km
Watching large birds of prey inside the courtyard of a ruined castle
(that you can explore either before or after the show) is a great idea
for older children (over 10). The younger ones are usually a little
scared. It's all in French, but you don't need much translation for this
show and it's very close to Monkey Mountain!

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.

is a small town or a very large village in Alsace that's famous for its
15th century library which contains 70,000 books and documents from the
7th to 16th century and was a part of the medieval Latin School founded
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

Haut Koenigsbourg castle was originally built in 1147 in the Vosges
mountains. Like many castles it was enlarged a number of times and
updated to deal with changes in warfare. But like most castles in
Alsace, it was severely damaged in the Thirty Years War in the 1600s,
but it was also fully restored in the 1900s. Haut Koenigsbourg will give
you a very clear picture of life in a medieval castle in Alsace.
