Very scenic road along the foothills of the Vosges Mountains in Alsace France.

The Alsacian Wine road is a 110 mile long scenic road at the foothills of the Vosges Mountains. The road begins at Marlenheim in Northern Alsace and ends south of the city of Thann in the south.

The road goes through 73 scenic and historic villages. There are over 300 wine cellars offering tours and wine tasting.  In the summer many of the houses in the villages are adorned with colorful geraniums. The villages along the route are very often a starting point of hiking trails leading through vineyards and very often going through forests and leading to old castle ruins. There are many very good restaurants in these villages where one can enjoy a delicious meal and taste some of the local wines. The route is especially beautiful in the fall during the grape harvest.
