  • EGUISHEIM

Eguisheim is a medieval village with narrow streets and half-timbered houses that are way too beautiful.

You can experience one of the most scenic walks of your life in Eguisheim and outside the village is an array of castles. Since Eguisheim is surrounded by vineyards, it is an ideal place for wine-tasting activities.

Kayserburg boasts a royal castle that serves as a reminder of its importance in past wars. It houses the region’s finest vineyards and it has been titled France’s favorite village in 2017.

I would highly recommend you to the Domaine Paul Blanck and John Dietrich of Alsace Wines wineries in Kayserburg to taste the world’s best white wines like Pinot Gris and Riesling wines.

You will feel like stepping into the world of Game of Thrones, right from the word ‘Go’ while entering the Riquewihr!
