  • Riquewihr is often voted as the most beautiful village in Alsace.  Its main street is lined with Renaissance houses and framed with picturesque side alleys and courtyards.  Admire the Dolder, a 25m tower built in pink sandstone from the Vosges and erected the same time as the first fortification walls in the 13th century.
