Riquewihr

This village is one of Alsace’s gems and its excellent wines match the excellence of its architecture. A stroll around the village is a delight and the flower-decked balconies, sculpted windows and old paved courtyards are everywhere to be seen. Houses dating from the 15C to 18C, castle of the Dukes of Wurtemberg, squares and fountains : everything is wonderful !
