A nice excursion is to take a ride on the so-called wine route, where you can stop in the many traditional villages along the way; Riquewihr, Eguisheim, Ribeauville and Kayserberg. Here you will find wine shops, good restaurants and beautiful half-timbered houses. Riquewihr is perhaps the most enchanting town on the Wine Route. Medieval ramparts line the town with its labyrinthine streets, hidden backyards and half-timbered houses. In Hunawihr you will find a stork park, which is also worth a visit. The stork is an important symbol in Alsace and is said to bring good luck and babies. For a time, the stork population in Alsace declined, and now much is being done to maintain the population, which is again considerable.
