" Stroll through the cobblestone streets of Eguisheim, one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France. This charming typical little Alsatian village features brightly coloured old houses with pointed roofs and timber-framed façades. "
Eguisheim is a must during your stay in Alsace!
Located at the southern exit of Colmar, Eguisheim has been ranked as "One of the Most Beautiful Villages in France" since 2003 and won the title of "France's Favourite Village" in 2013 on a TV show presented by Stéphane Bern.
This medieval village pleases for its modest size, its unique architecture, its profusion of flowers in the summer, but also for its authentic charm at Christmas time when many activities are offered around the Christmas market.
Eguisheim draws its title of glory from its architectural ensemble, preserved from the ravages of history and intelligently preserved.
Built around its castle, this medieval city unfolds in concentric circles. You will discover in this original village, fountains, colongereal courtyards and a church sheltering a 13th century "Opening Virgin".
It will be good to stroll along the alleys and admire the colorful palette of the houses whose very old inscriptions on the door lintels you can decipher.
