As soon as you catch first sight of Eguisheim‘s beautiful buildings, you won’t be able to stop yourself from pull out your camera and exploring its fairy tale streets. And when your feet get tired, sit yourself down in a cafe and enjoy a coffee or a glass of local wine.
Along with the history and architecture, wine of course is one of the main attractions for many Eguisheim visitors, who can also take a walk around the “Grands Cruz” vineyards trail to enjoy the views and learn about how the wine is produced.
Eguisheim is also famous for its 3 castles, the oldest of which dates back to 1006, little remains of the castles today but the history is fascinating and walk around the hill top with views of the surrounding vineyards is worthwhile in its own right.
Where to Eat
Eguisheim prides itself not only on being the birthplace of wine growing in the Alsace, but also the culinary heart of the region, so you won’t have any trouble finding an excellent meal. There are over 15 restaurants in Eguisheim including the excellent Caveau d’Eguisheim or Le Pavillon Gourmand serving traditional French cuisine at its best, to the Pizzeria Le Dagsbourg if you feel like something different.
When to Go
The best time to visit Eguisheim is in the summer months when the weather is at its best and the vineyards provide guided tours (June-mid September). In general, its best to avoid school holidays if you can, but the prestigious “Fete des Vignerons” in the last weekend August is excellent fun.
