Along the Alsace Wine Route
Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr and Saint-Hippolyte
One of the features of the Alsace Wine Route is its length, more than 170 km in total. Beginning your journey in Marlenheim in the north and carrying on down up to Thann in the south, you’ll be able to enjoy an experience full of savours and culture unlike any other. Beyond the 300 vineyards or so dotting this route, be sure also to visit the famous castles that appear along the way such as the Château du Haut-Ribeaupierre, and especially the Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg. The Musée Unterlinden in Colmar is equally a classic place to visit, and you mustn’t forget to stop and discover the top gastronomic institutions in each of the villages along the route.
Our hotel located in Saint-Hippolyte near Riquewihr and Ribeauvillé is ideal for discovering the Alsace Wine Route at your leisure. We’re more than happy to give you advice and recommend places for you to visit. Your first trip should ideally be during the autumn months, as this season coincides with the start of the harvest as well as the period of tasting the new wine. Whether by bike, motorbike or car, the Alsace Wine Route at the foot of the Vosges mountains can be enjoyed in many ways (even with the small touristic train in Riquewihr, Ribeauvillé, Colmar and Obernai).
You can also discover the many different events along the Alsace Wine Route, including the Slow Up festival, the Marathon du Vignoble, the Foire aux vins d’Alsace (Alsace Wine Festival) and the Summer Wine Festivals.
