About Ribeauville

Set halfway between Strasbourg and Mulhouse, Ribeauvillé is a charming community surrounded by vineyards and castles, many of which date back to the Middle Ages. A lovely holiday destination for history buffs and relaxed outdoorsy explorers, the area offers converted farmhouses and mountain chalet-style hotels, with space for couples, families and friends. The best places to stay in Ribeauvillé are perfect for a tranquil Alsace escape in winter or summer.

Amble along Ribeauvillé’s Grand-Rue to marvel at 15th- to 18th-Century buildings, fountain-studded squares and ancient walls, which have partially surrounded the town for centuries. The Town Hall, the Corn Exchange and the churches of St Gregory and St Augustine are all well worth admiring, and guided walking tours come highly recommended. The Spring Market, Wine Fair and Christmas Market are also very special.

Beyond the town, you’ll find vast vineyards, many of which offer excellent tours and tastings, as well as fascinating ruined castles dotting the landscape. Long walks or cycle rides with stops to visit the remnants of Saint-Ulrich, Haut-Ribeaupierre and Girsberg are wonderful in the late spring, summer and early autumn. All feature dramatic views of the forested Vosges Mountains. Whether you’re curious about enormous châteaux or family-owned wineries, the best places to stay in Ribeauvillé promise the ideal base from which to discover the region.
