Known for its wines and picturesque ‘kitsch’ villages, the Alsace region runs along the border between France and Germany. As you can imagine, this dual heritage has bequeathed a fine local cuisine with many regional specialties and a fascinating military history from both World Wars. Our Walk takes us through charming valleys filled with vineyards and pastures and along shaded forest trails in the mountains. We enjoy spectacular views across Germany’s Black Forest, home of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and explore the medieval fortress of Koenigsbourg. There are plenty of opportunities to stroll around the pretty villages and admire their half-timbered houses and cobbled streets. No trip to this renowned wine region would be complete without dinner in a traditional Alsatian ‘winstub’ or wine lounge. Originally, winstubs were rooms open to the public where wine growers could sell off the surplus of their production. Nowadays, the winstub is an Alsatian restaurant, serving wine in carafes accompanied by simple, rustic dishes. One of the highlights of this Walk is our meal in a typical winstub in Ribeauville.
