About Obernai

Obernai is a wonderfully charming wine-producing town in the beautiful Alsace region. Its atmospheric ring wall, and half-timber houses in pretty colours with their flower boxes, make it a popular spot for day trippers, but it makes an excellent base for exploring more of the region. The best places to stay in Obernai are generally in the attractive town centre, but if you’re planning to explore the whole region then the best options are probably just out of town, where you’ll be in amongst the vines and surrounded by lovely views.

As well as being close to the vineyards of the Alsace, Obernai is also close to the slopes of the Vosges mountains, so many guidebooks refer to it as Alsace in miniature.

  • Or, for another set of spectacular views take a walk around the 13th-century ramparts.
  • The church of St. Peter and St. Paul is another must-visit local highlight.
  • Wander around the Parcous Historique d'Obernai if you want to find out more about the town's rich history.
