2 miles/3 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.
3 miles/5 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!
5 miles/7 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.
6 miles/9 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...
7 miles/11 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.
8 miles/13 km
is a small town or very large village in a valley in the Vosges
mountains that you can get to by train! It's also the birthplace of
Munster cheese. You can taste Munster cheese anywhere in Alsace, but if
you want some fresh locally made cheese, you'll have to visit the
Munster valley (and you can see how it's made too).
8 miles/13 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.
