Staying in Wintzenheim hotels is one way to really save some money in Alsace...
It is a wine road village in its own right...it's been around for a long time just like all of the other villages on the wine road.
You can even do wine tastings and walk around the historic area of the village...
But it's also become a suburb of Colmar and you may notice that it is a bit large and has lots of shopping centers for a village.
You'll be close to grocery stores and the sorts of stores you will find in shopping areas in France, but you will be less than a mile from a train stop to take you wherever you want to go...
And inexpensive chain hotels are easier to find in an area like this.
So Wintzenheim hotels are very practical...and you'll save a lot of money...
Hopefully you'll find everything that you need to know about Wintzenheim hotels and France…
But if you don't find what you're looking for…ask me a question about your Alsace vacation here!
Choosing Wintzenheim hotels will save you some money and still keep you near so many beautiful villages!
Walking and biking will be an easy option for you because you'll be very close to quite a few villages and there's a train station less than a mile away.
Wintzenheim hotels are perfect for those of you who plan to spend very little time in your hotel room...
And remember to make a stop by a local shopping center here...it can be a cultural experience in its own right too!
