Surrounded by ramparts, the village has been very fortunate to survive war and destruction. Its tiny streets, fortified walls and old houses have preserved their 16th century splendor virtually intact. Enjoy some free time to explore and enjoy lunch before you start to follow the breathtaking Alsace Wine Route. Located between the Rhine valley and the Vosges mountain range, the 60 year old route winds across the slopes for more than 170 kilometres. Marvel at the rows of undulating, vine covered hills, and quaint villages with narrow streets and charming flower-decorated houses clustered around the local church steeple beforing reaching Haut Koenigsbourg castle. Here you will have an expert guide give you a tour of this mighty fortress that overlooks the valley. Built in 12th century, the castle occupied a strategic position controlling the wine and wheat routes to the North and the salt route that came from the East. After the visit you will be taken back to Strasbourg having enjoyed a day full of wine and sightseeing.
