Our ideas of places to discover:
The Monkey Mountain
After your visit to the Jardins des Papillons, we can only advise you to go to the Monkey Mountain, in Kintzheim. This animal park covers more than 24 hectares, and offers you the opportunity to meet the Barbary Macaques. A surprising and emotional walk.
The Haut-Kœnigsbourg Castle stands proudly on the heights of Orschwiller, dominating the entire Alsace plain. By pushing the doors of this fortress, you go back in time and plunge into the Middle Ages. A magnificent and extraordinary place, 20 minutes from the Jardins des Papillons.
Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr Tourist Information Office
The Ribeauvillé and Riquewhir region is located in the heart of Alsace, and offers an incredible panorama to anyone who ventures along the Wine Route. Between plains, mountains and vineyards, let yourself be carried away by magnificent landscapes and an exceptional heritage.
Colmar Tourist Information Office
With its colourful buildings, historic houses, Dominican Church and “Little Venice”, Colmar is undeniably a city of art, history and heritage. It is also the capital of Alsace wines. The Colmar agglomeration has many wine-growing communes with exceptional grapes; no doubt the reason why their wines are considered the best in Alsace.
Sélestat Tourist Information Office
Sélestat and its agglomeration is unique. It is a land of history where medieval roots, towns with a thousand and one stories, cultural sites, the Wine Route and preserved natural areas are all mixed together.
Hunawihr Wine Cellar
The Cave Vinicole de Hunawhir is a cooperative winery that has at heart to vinify its production in the respect of the richness and diversity of its terroirs. The cellar offers traditional wines, terroir wines as well as “Alsace Grands Crus”. It is to be discovered in Hunawihr.
