Villages to discover

Obernai boasts a remarkable historical heritage. Established in the 7th century, this medieval Alsatian town was shaped by the diverse influences of the Romans, regional lords and, later, Benedictine monks. Obernai is a small part of Alsace.
The atmosphere is pleasant, and the many terraces offer an opportunity to refresh and quench your thirst.

Occupied since Neolithic times, Rosheim is first documented in 778 as Rodasheim. Initially a religious estate, the town was elevated to the rank of imperial city in 1303. Beyond its many charming and fascinating remains, history has given Rosheim an identity of its own. It’s a must-see on the Route Romane d’Alsace.
There are also restaurants and terraces where you can take a break.
Heiligenstein is a traditional Alsatian village nestled in the vineyard hills, with panoramic views over the plain. Its fame stems from Klevener, a remarkable white wine grown exclusively in this region of Alsace.
