Just a short distance from Colmar, Eguisheim is the birthplace of winegrowing in Alsace and also the village where Pope Leo IX was born. The village is proud of its concentric, cobblestone streets and its floral decoration, which has won national and European awards. Visitors can admire the beauty of its 16C and 17C houses with their pointed roofs, bright colours and half-timbering.
