The old village of Riquewihr




Places to visit and stay in the old village photos and guide. The village is about 9 miles from the old town of Colmar just off the D3 road.

The old village of Riquewihr is enclosed in its medieval walls. It is overlooked by a castle which is now used as a museum.

The village is in one of the richest wine growing areas in the Alsace region. It is a major tourist spot for people driving along the Alsace wine route.

The archway leads to the main street in Riquewihr

If you arrive by car leave it outside the walls the village is mainly pedestrian.

Nearly every house is brightly painted with a mixture of balconies and flower boxes. Many have cobbled courtyards one of the things I noticed was the shop signs. Made out of iron the very old ones are now in the postal museum.

A typical house in the village

There is a little train that take you through the vineyards.You can try some of the local wines at Higel et Fils 3, rue de la premiere armee 68340
