What You Can Expect

Alsace Day Trip from Strasbourg: Colmar, Eguisheim, Riquewihr, High Koenigsbourg Castle and Alsace Wine Tasting

Explore the fairytale-like Haut Koenigsbourg castle on your full-day tour from Strasbourg

Your day trip from Strasbourg begins when you meet your guide aboard the awaiting minivan in the town center. Settle into air-conditioned comfort for the scenic drive.

The first stop is the village of Colmar, where you’ll go on a walking tour with your guide. The town’s cobblestoned streets are lined with characteristic German-style half-timbered buildings, and you’ll even see some canals. See Colmar’s main sights, including Saint Martin’s Church and the 16th-century Pfister House, and wander historic neighborhoods like Little Venice.

Your next stop is the picturesque town of Eguisheim, known for its Medieval buildings decorated with flowers, and then it’s on to Riquewihr. The charming town sits inside Medieval walls, and is a warren of meandering alleys and chocolate-box houses. Enjoy some time to explore the pretty town at your leisure, including time to have lunch (own expense).

Continuing on your Alsace tour, the next point of interest is the 105-mile (170 km) Alsace Wine Route (Route des Vins d’Alsace). This scenic road curves gently through rolling hills and past acres of vineyards at the foot of the Vosges Mountains. Stop at a winery for a guided wine tasting session, then get back on the road toward your final stop — Haut Koenigsbourg Castle (Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg).

The castle dates from the 12th century, and you’ll have a chance to explore the inside — including where people once lived inside it — and find out how this powerful fortress used to control the salt, wheat and wine routes from northern and eastern Europe. Admire the excellent views from the castle’s hilltop vantage point before climbing back into the minivan for the drive back to Strasbourg at the starting point of the tour.

This was the highlight of our French vacation. Danieli was a delightful guide. I was not able to tour the castle but Colmar, Eguisheim and Riquewihr were stunning!!!

We were very fortunate to be the only travellers on this tour. Our guide Alverno was a walking history book on the region and the various places and points of interested we visited. Our visit to a winemaker right in the centre of Colmar was a highlight. Who would have thought that we'd be there to see his vintage arrive and be pressed before our eyes. He was also very informative giving us a taste of the newly pressed juice and various wines he had made. Colmar Equisheim and Riquewihr are must see places for any traveller to Strasbourg. There is no way we could have had such a rich experience on our own. It was one of the best tours we have ever done.

Outstanding tour of Alsatian area with highly informed, congenial guide. Ours was special, in that there were only 4 of us. Our guide responded impressively to our questions pursuant to his standard presentations. The wine tasting experience was highly informative, with a master vintner who was not at all condescending.

Our tour guide, Pauline, was so very friendly and informative. I did this trip with my mother, and there were 3 other people on the trip. It was one of the best tours I have taken in a very very long time. Saw so much, and a great variety. Highlight of our vacation for sure!
