The Alsace Wine Route, a mythical itinerary that crosses vineyards and picturesque villages on a 170 km circuit

The alsacian wine route

The Alsace Wine Route, inaugurated in 1953, is an itinerary from Marlenheim to Thann (with an enclave in the north of the region) that passes through the exceptional landscapes of Alsace over more than 170km. The Wine Route takes you through picturesque villages that enchant the French, including Bergheim, Kaysersberg, Eguisheim, three charming villages that have been elected as the Favorite Villages of the French. Through vineyards, castles and half-timbered houses, the Wine Route lets you discover the unique atmosphere of Alsace by transmitting the passion for wine shared by the winegrowers and winemakers. .

A multitude of experiences to live: the Alsace Wine Route allows everyone to live an unforgettable experience. Explore the vineyards by bike, marvel at the unique beauty of the Alsatian villages, stroll through the castles filled with history or discover the know-how of the winemakers by tasting Alsatian wines: this is part of what the Wine Route can offer. Exceptional moments in a setting worthy of a postcard!
