The Alsace Wine Route

It’s one of the most famous tourist routes in France and Europe: follow the superb Alsace Wine Route as it passes through Eguisheim and other traditional villages, including some of the most beautiful in France, and stunning landscapes, from mountains and forests to vineyards.

Some 170 kilometres long, the Wine Route winds its way through the region from north to south, taking in some of the famous grape varieties used in Alsace’s legendary white wines – Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer – which are world-renowned for their elegance and subtlety.

Whether you’re exploring on foot, by bike or by Segway®, thanks to our Segway Ride through the Vineyards offer, the Wine Route is the ideal setting in which to enjoy Alsace’s gentle pace of life.
