is a small town or very large village on the wine road. They've been
making wine for over 13 centuries now (starting in the 700s at least).
If you loved Colmar, you will really love Obernai! It's a very
beautiful town and the vineyards are much closer than in Colmar.
Obernai is also the birthplace of the patron saint of Alsace, Sainte
4 miles/7 km
is a beautiful wine village in Alsace with quite a lot of castle ruins
if you're interested... It's also the closest village to Mont Sainte
Odile and you can walk to it in about an hour or drive. Ottrott is also
famous for its Pinot Noir (they've been making it since the 1100s).
5 miles/8 km
is a small wine producing village in Alsace near Molsheim that is
probably more famous for its beer than wine (although it has some
excellent wine as well). And for those of you who love military history,
there is Fort Mutzig built in the very late 1800s by the German Empire.

5 miles/8 km
is best known as the home of Bugatti. You can still tour the Bugatti
Foundation in Molsheim or you can go just next door to Dorlisheim where
their new Bugatti car factory is now located. But Molsheim is still a
wine road village and its medieval city walls are still standing...right

It's a pretty little wine village with one big difference. They produce
Klevener de Heiligenstein wine (which can only be produced in that

Gewurztraminer, you might want to try this historic variety in Alsace.
8 miles/13 km
is a wine road village in Alsace that attracts fewer tourists AND has a
train station, but it's not because it's not a beautiful little village
with adorable winding cobblestone streets. So if you are looking for a
quieter Alsace vacation, Barr might be for you.
9 miles/14 km
(like Riquewihr) is one of the most beautiful villages in France, but
there are a lot less tourists here. Between Andlau and Barr you'll find
some of the best Sylvaner wine (and many other grape varieties) in a
quiet and peaceful setting.
