About the neighbourhood
Riquewihr is a medieval city of an exceptional beauty. Riquewihr, a colourful village out of a fairy tale, hides in a small valley on the foot of the Vosges mountains, on the wine trail of Alsace, hardly a dozen kilometres from Colmar. In Riquewihr you are in the middle of this so picturesque Alsace of the picture books. For centuries, Riquewihr produces some of the most beautiful wines of Alsace and the world. A nature superbly made up of vineyards and wooded mountains is protecting this exceptional jewel which is Riquewihr. Ramparts, rich residences and more modest medieval houses make it the pearl of the Alsatian vineyard and one of the most visited and most beautiful villages in France.
Getting around
If you fly in for a longer stay we recommend you rent a car. For a short stay you may arrive by train in Colmar and from there take a bus or a taxi. We can arrange a taxi with an English speaking driver. Riquewihr is a very practical base to visit all Alsace, the Vosges mountains, the Black Forest in Germany and nearby Switzerland. We also can arrange electro-bikes for rent.
