Riquewihr is the most visited of the picturesque towns in the wine region of Alsace. In this fairytale town of 1200 inhabitants 90 % of the houses were built before 1640 and the whole town is classed as a historical monument.
Riquewihr is situated on the Alsace Wine Route (Route de Vin) only a few kilometres north of Colmar.
In the very well preserved medieval town of Riquewihr, with its old city wall still intact, you can go for romantic strolls in the cobbled streets, lined with cafes and restaurants where you can try the local gastronomic food and the wines of Alsace. The local pastries are well known! Try them with a glass of Alsace Vendange Tardive.
Some very famous Alsace wine producers are located in Riquewihr, for example Dopff au Moulin, Hugel and Dopff et Irion.
