If you are interested in medieval churches, then Guebwiller is the
perfect wine road village for you. Not only will you find an adorable
not so small village with plenty opportunities to try Alsace wine, there
are three religious buildings in Guebwiller for you to enjoy: the 12th
century St Leger, the 15th century Dominican monaster, and Alsace's
oldest abbey originally built in the 700s (a short drive or an hour's
walk away). Not too mention you'll have a town full of shops and
8 miles/13 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!
10 miles/15 km
Murbach abbey was a very powerful Benedictine abbey built in the
700s. Like most things built at this time, not all of it has survived,
but there is still a bit to see. And it's a little less than 4 miles or 6
km away (one hour's walk) from Guebwiller plus there's a ruined castle
about half way to Murbach in Buhl. In any case you'll get some beautiful
scenery in the valley surrounded by mountains.
10 miles/15 km
If you've ever wanted to see what an Alsatian village looked like in the late 1800s,
here's your chance! You'll see a working oil mill, potters, a wine
maker's house, a blacksmith, a barrelmaker and more plus all the usual
animals you would expect. Kids usually love this outdoor museum. All of
the buildings have been moved from their original location but are real
(from 15th to 19th century).
11 miles/18 km
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.
12 miles/19 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.
14 miles/22 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...
