FORTIFIED CASTLES, MUSEUMS AND RELIGIOUS MONUMENTS.
MOUNT ST ODILE*
Even today a pilgrimage center, the convent is one of the most visited places in the region. A visit to its interior allows you to learn about the life story (and legends) of the patron saint of Alsace. Outside – which offers the most beautiful panoramic view in the region – a route can be taken to observe how the convent was built on a rock, visit the miraculous well and the pagan wall.
* It can be combined with a visit to the charming little town of Obernai or included as one of the stops during your tour along the Wine Road in Alsace.
Although small, the Alsace region has one of the largest concentrations of medieval castle ruins. A visit to the Haut-Koenigsbourg – nowadays a museum of the Middle Ages – allows you to understand the tumultuous history of the region and discover why this castle is considered one of the main symbols of German influence in the region.
* It can be included as one of the stops during your tour along the Wine Road in Alsace.
Several half-timbered houses have been regrouped to recreate a typical 19th-century Alsatian village. A visit to this open-air museum allows you to learn about the way of life and customs of a population that was, for the most part, rural.
THE 3 CASTLES OF RIBEAUVILLE
Ribeauvillé is one of the most charming villages along the Wine Route. This active option combines a guided tour of the village with a hike uphill to visit the ruins of the castles of the “lords” of Ribeauvillé.
NORTH OF ALSACE
Northern Alsace is still a region little explored by visitors. But there are many options for original itineraries that can include: ruins of medieval castles, military constructions of the Maginot Line, typical Alsatian villages, visits to ceramics manufacturing workshops (typical handicrafts in the region) and the Lalique Museum.
OBERNAI PHOTO TOUR
The Obernai Photo Tour is a guided walking tour of the city combined with a photo shooting.
"OBERNAI: one of the most beautiful detours in France"
Obernai is a charming little town located along the Wine Road in Alsace.
This chill out town has everything you can possibly expect from an Alsatian village:
- important historical facts…and legends
- parts of the medieval fortification wall
- half-timbered houses
- breathtaking views
During this 2-hour tour, we will stop at different spots where I will be giving you some historical information about each location. These locations will also serve as a background for your photos. Even though the itinerary is pre-set, I can adapt the shooting spots and poses according to the seasons, to the light and to better suit your personality.
Solo, in a couple, with a group of friends or with your family…let yourself be taken by the charm of the city while you are caught in camera in a casual manner…having as a background a little bit of the soul of the town.
