In 2023, the wonderful Alsace Wine Route celebrates its 70th anniversary ! Come and take part to the festivities with a wild range of animations and events all year long 


The authentic Village of Christmas

" Every two years, Orschwiller inhabitants put their heart into decorating their lovely village. Here is your chance to admire it ! "

Every two years, this charming wine-growing town on the Alsace Wine Route, at the foot of the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, is transformed into a veritable Christmas village. Thanks to the help of its residents and a host of kind-hearted volunteers, the village is decorated, illuminated and soundtracked to perfection. Watch local artists and craftsmen at work and discover their skills, stock up on original and unique gift ideas, celebrate the light, push open the door of the church and take the time to listen to a beautiful Christmas concert filled with emotion, or sample all the flavours of Christmas... All the magic of an authentic Alsatian Christmas is experienced in Orschwiller! A unique experience!
