Description

We'll leave by coach with a tour guide to discover Colmar. You'll have a brief guided tour of the city's center, including historical sites such as the Unterlinden Museum, “Little Venice”, Saint Martin's Church, the Pfister House, and the Koïfhus.

Lunch is included during the tour (except beverages).

After lunch, we'll set out to discover the Alsatian Wine Route. You'll discover the region's wines and its seven grape varieties while traveling through picturesque villages with half-timbered houses, enchanting fountains and, of course, wine presses. We'll pass through Albert Schweitzer's birthplace, Kaysersberg; Ribeauvillé, the City of Fiddlers; and Riquewihr, in the heart of the vineyards. You'll catch a glimpse of the legendary storks, the symbol of Alsace. We'll also stop at a wine cellar to taste the famous Alsatian wines*, mostly white and either dry Rieslings or highly aromatic Gewürztraminers.

Return on board by coach.
