Once you have fallen for the charm of Alsace, it will not let you go. No wonder, it offers its visitors a varied program full of surprises and contrasts. Look forward to Colmar on the Alsace Wine Route, which likes to call itself the capital of Alsatian wines. The city is famous for its well-preserved architectural heritage spanning six centuries. You'll have plenty of time in 7 days to stroll through the old town, which is well worth seeing, and through the famous Little Venice district. Marvel at the colorfully painted and admirably well-preserved half-timbered houses, at the many small squares and nooks and enjoy beautiful evenings in a special atmosphere. During the day you will discover by bike the Alsatian wine route, sleepy little villages as well as famous Alsatian wine towns like Ribeauvillée, Guebwiller and Riquewihr. You will visit the impressive fortified town of Neuf-Brisach and such sacred masterpieces as the St.Stefansmünster in Breisach. During your excursion to lively Strasbourg, you will surely be enchanted by the old town and the cathedral. Take your time and try Alsatian specialties like Baeckeoffe, Flammkuchen or Guglhupf as well as the wonderful wines of the region.

Tour

Welcome to Colmar with its architectural heritage spanning six centuries. Stroll leisurely through the picturesque streets and alleys of the old town, the third largest city in Alsace. Enjoy charm, flair and a first wine in a typical winstub.

You start your first bike tour from Colmar in northern direction and reach Ribeauvillé via Houssen. You cycle through the beautiful wine villages of Riquewihr, Turckheim, Eguisheim and back to Colmar. 

Today's round trip takes you through the villages of Turckheim and Zimmerbach into the Munster Valley. The picturesque landscape of the Vosges massif is characterized by gently rounded hills, high alpine pastures, steep slopes and glacial lakes. The area is famous for its Munster cheese. Take time to visit the "Maison du Fromage" and taste the famous cheese. Pass through small villages on a leisurely bike path back to Colmar. 

After the stages through the Alsace wine region, today you will experience the Rhine valley quite comfortably. In Neu - Brisach you will pass the imposing octagonal baroque fortress, which was built around 1700 by Vauban, the master fortress builder of Louis XiV. After crossing the Rhine bridge, the Breisgau region of Germany awaits you. Breisach is known for its cathedral and numerous historic buildings in the old town. As in France, you can visit a Maginot Line bunker from World War II in Marckolsheim. Along the canal you will return to Colmar.

Follow the French wine route today and cycle through dreamy wine villages with Alsatian half-timbered houses and wonderful medieval village centers. Ideal places in the midst of extensive vineyards to enjoy and to simply let your soul dangle. You have the choice: You can cycle from Guebwiller to Bollwiller to take the direct train to Colmar or you continue to Ungersheim past the Ecomusée d'Alsace, the open-air museum to Mulhouse and from here take the train to Colmar.

From the hotel you can reach the Colmar train station in a few minutes. About every half hour you have the possibility to take a train to Strasbourg. In Erstein (about 25 km before Strasbourg) you get on your bike and cycle along the Rhine - Rhone - Canal into the heart of the "European Capital". Use the visit for a leisurely city tour and the Strasbourg Cathedral. Return to Colmar by train.

There is much more to discover here in the heart of the Elass. We would be happy to book additional extension nights for you.
