Take in the Serene and Inspiring Sights of the Alsace Region
In the morning, we will come and pick you up at your centrally located accommodation in Strasbourg. On this half day tour from Strasbourg, reach the village of Obernai. After the visit of the village, we will drive through the alsace wine route that is lined with small towns and villages and stop at Mont Saint Odile. Here, enjoy panoramic views of the Alsace Plain and you will have time to explore the site on your own.
On this half day Alsace private tour leaving Strasbourg, discover the small village of Obernai, certainly one of the most beautiful of Alsace with its little winding streets, old houses, ensigns and ramparts. Enjoy a guided tour of the town and some time for personal discovery. If you wish, it is also possible to organise a wine tasting session in the are.
Then reach Mount Saint Odile, a sacred place dedicated to the patron saint of Alsace that still attracts many pilgrims. The site is serene and the view on the Alsace plain is unbelievable. Follow your guide as you visit the monastery and then enjoy some free time for personal discovery. After the visit, we will head back to Strasbourg and that will be the end of our services.
We can also provide this day trip as a full day tour and include the visit of the Château du Haut Koenigsbourg castle as well. This ancient castle rebuilt by Wilhelm II is a highlight of the area. Another option is to take an Alsace Wine Route tour that would include visits, wine tastings and outdoor activities.

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!
