The Alsace Wine Route has contributed to the fame of Alsace Wines for the past 60 years.
The most famous Wine Route in France proudly reveals its medieval châteaux and Renaissance houses and the flowery lanes of its charming villages. A land of tradition and wine, offering a unique experience for the visitor. Officially established as a tourist route in 1953, it celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2013.
Renowned for its remarkable and simple itinerary, the Wine Route invites you to discover the region and its wine producers. It winds through sloping valleys along the foothills of the Vosges for more than 170km, crossing the entire wine region from Marlenheim to Thann and meeting some 1000 producers. It also includes an isolated section around Wissembourg, in the far north of the Alsace.
Five regions carry (or are in the process of gaining) the “Vignobles et Découvertes” label:
- The “Pays de Wissembourg” wine region
- The “Vignoble de Strasbourg”, from Marlenheim to Molsheim
- The “Cœur d’Alsace” wine region, between Mont Sainte-Odile and the Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg
- The “Terre et Vins au Pays de Colmar” wine region, around Colmar
- The “La Route des Vins Sud-Alsace” wine region, around Thann and Guebwiller
2 500 km of long-distance cycling routes and “green” routes
With a combination of short and long-distance cycling routes, Alsace has something for all cyclists. The region is crossed by three EuroVelo routes: EuroVelo 15, or Rhine Cycle Route, from Andermatt to Rotterdam, EuroVelo 5 from London to Rome – the Via Romea Francigena – and EuroVelo 6. Adjoining this framework, you will find the Alsace Wine Road cycle route and cross-border routes to Offenburg, Dahn, Baden-Baden and Freiburg-im-Breisgau.
