Like something straight out of a picture postcard, and situated on the Alsatian wine route, the region is very proud of the international charm and reputation of this mediaeval village. Indeed, Éguisheim is a “Village in Bloom” located between the castles and vineyards. Here, you’ll find no shortage of half-timbered houses, attractive flower beds, fountains and steep narrow streets, gourmet restaurants, cheerful villagers with strong Alsatian accents and experts in Alsace’s finest wines, its grands crus.
Éguisheim has been a member of the Plus Beaux Villages association (France’s finest villages) since 2003.
