Description

Leave by coach from Strasbourg or Breisach with a tour guide to discover the Alsatian Wine Route. You'll discover the region's wines and its seven grape varieties while traveling through picturesque villages with half-timbered houses, enchanting fountains and, of course, wine presses.

We'll pass through Albert Schweitzer's birthplace, Kaysersberg; Ribeauvillé, the City of Fiddlers; and Riquewihr, in the heart of the vineyards.

You'll catch a glimpse of the legendary storks, the symbol of Alsace. We'll also stop at a wine cellar to taste the famous Alsatian wines*, mostly white and either dry Rieslings or highly aromatic Gewürztraminers. During our tour, you'll be able to take advantage of some free time in certain villages before returning to the boat in the evening.

Lunch is included during the tour (except beverages).

After lunch, we'll head towards Colmar. You'll have a brief guided tour of the city's center, including historical sites such as the Unterlinden Museum, “Little Venice”, Saint Martin's Church, the Pfister House, and the Koïfhus. Free time to explore the Christmas Markets (ref. MNO).

Return by coach to Strasbourg or Breisach.
