Ribeauville Church

Riquewihr is a wonderful and romantic little medieval city hidden between the Vosges mountains and some of the most famous vineyards in the Haut-Rhin départment in Alsace in northeastern France. Riquewihr (German: Reichenweier or Reichenweyer), a popular tourist attraction for its historical architecture, is the jewel in the crown – famous for the Riesling and other great Alsace wines produced here – and looks today exactly as it did in the 16th Century, is only 11,3 km from Colmar and minutes from other famous alsatian villages like Ribeauvillé, Hunawihr, Eguisheim or Kaysersberg. Riquewihr is een prachtig klein middeleeuws stadje oostelijk van het laaggebergte, de Vogezen, en tussen de mooiste wijngaarden in noordoostlijk Frankrijk in het departement Haut-Rhin in de regio Elzas. Riquewihr (Duits: Reichenweiher of Reichenweyer) is populair bij toeristen om de historische 16e eeuwse architectuur en wijnen als de Riesling en andere Elzaswijnen. Riquewihr ligt 11,3 km noordelijk van Colmar en enkele minuten van andere beroemde Elzas stadjes als Ribeauvillé, Hunawihr, Eguisheim en Kaysersberg. ______________________________________________________________________ All rights reserved.
