Riquewihr : Michelin's recommendations
At the heart of Alsace’s vineyards, Riquewihr is an essential halt on the wine route. Surrounded by ramparts, the village has been very fortunate to survive war and destruction. Its tiny streets, fortified walls and old houses have preserved their 16C splendour virtually intact, making for remarkable architectural harmony. Always a floral delight whatever the season, it is particularly well decorated during Christmas and Easter.
