DAY 1: STRASBOURG FLAMMEKUECHE ATELIER / AFTERNOON OBERNAI REGION WINE TOUR
This morning, learn the secrets of making traditional Alsatian “tarte flambée” during a 45-minute baking workshop with an expert chef. This is a hands-on cookery lesson in a local “winstub” with group size limited to eight people. Finish the class by eating your own freshly baked flammekueche and wash it down with a glass of wine! It makes for the perfect self-made, local lunch. The price includes the cooking class; then you get to eat 1/2 a traditional flammekueche and 1/4 of a traditional sweet flammekueche. A drink is also included: 25cl beer (must be 18+), 1 soft drink or a small bottle of mineral water, or 1 glass of Alsace white wine.
After some free time for lunch, meet your guide for an afternoon wine tour. We will take you in the Obernai wine producing area where you will have the opportunity to visit and wine taste in 2 local wineries to learn about the typical Alsace white wines.
DAY 2: PEARL OF ALSACE FULL DAY TOUR
Designed to give visitors the opportunity to discover the most relevant sights of the region, begin the tour with the visit of charming Colmar. From there, travel to the small villages that line the wine route before arriving in Riquewihr. After a walking tour and some free time for lunch, end the day with the visit of the mighty Haut Koenigsbourg Castle.
DAY 3: A FULL-DAY TRIP TO THE BLACK FOREST AND VISIT OF BADEN BADEN
On this day 3, leave Strasbourg and cross the Border into Southern Germany to visit one of the most beautiful regions of the area with your English speaking tour guide. Depart for the spa town of Baden Baden nestled at the foot of the Black Forest. The city has attracted royalty, the rich and celebrities over the centuries. Follow your guide and discover the numerous architectural splendors and magnificent villas that are lined along the Lichtentaler Allee.
After the visit of Baden Baden, arrive at pretty Mummelsee lake where you will have some free time for personal discovery and lunch. With a circumference of 800 m, a depth of 17 m and an elevation of 1,036 m, Mummelsee is the largest, deepest and highest of the seven cirque lakes. Here, you might want to try the local food such as the cured meats or the world-famous Black Forest cake that leaves nobody indifferent!

Great wine tasting trip – A tour through beautiful country with a knowledgeable tour leader to visit wineries. Each winery had a range of tastings and a good discourse on the growing of the grape and the wine produced.
Great experience and a lovely guide – With our very nice guide Daniele, a very well mixed group of members and some amazing wines, this trip was totally worth it.
Don’t miss this tour!! – We had a great time on the Alsace wine route tour. Flo was very friendly, warm and entertaining! We all fell in love with the picturesque little villages along the way and of course the wine was spectacular!
Great morning winetasting – We had a great time visiting two wineries in a morning, as well as driving through the Alsace countryside and having some time to explore the small towns. Great guide too.
Wonderful Trip! – Our guide Bridgette and the tour was wonderful and a perfect amount of time (and wine)! We loved seeing little towns and sampling some of Alsace’s finest wines! Memories of a lifetime!
