A legendary itinerary …

Alsace's iconic wine and tourist itinerary, the Alsace Wine Route stretches over more than 170 km, from Marlenheim to Thann. Winding along the gentle Alsatian hillsides, it boasts magnificent landscapes with vineyards, castles, and traditional villages.

From village to village, get a taste of Alsatian art of living, explore its charming and flowery half-timbered houses, and marvel at the panoramas as you dive into the picture-postcard landscapes of Alsace.

Over the seasons, rediscover new landscapes, from the soft greens of spring to the golden light of autumn.

... and its charming wine-growing villages

Half-timbered façades, sloping roofs with dormers, carved wooden decorations, and lush balconies and windowsills with red, white, pink, or purple geraniums.
Discover Alsace’s most beautiful villages while exploring the 119 authentic and charming wine towns.
The route includes Wissembourg, Obernai, Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr, Guebwiller, and Thann. You can also stop for a visit in some of France’s favourite villages (as voted by the people): Eguisheim, Kaysersberg, and Bergheim. The Alsace Wine Route is a truly unique experience in an enchanting setting.
