Wine route in Alsace

Discover the Alsatian wine and beer route and walk the trails of the Vosges after having enjoyed the Alsatian gastronomy.

Altarpiece of Issenheim

Take an adventure on the canals of Little Venice in the city of Colmar before visiting the Unterlinden Museum with the breathtaking Issenheim Altarpiece painted by Matthias Grünewald in the early 16th century.

This masterpiece owes its popularity to the art critic and novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans who praised Grünewald’s genius in several texts at the end of the 19th century.

Haut Koenigsbourg Castle

From the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle to the Mont Sainte-Odile, there is only one wingbeat and one common utility: to protect Alsace from any threat, whether terrestrial or spiritual.

These high places of pilgrimage inspire wonder and respect!

Au Coeur du Patrimoine, managed by Leila Kopff, professional tour guide, focuses on two cities with a different aura:

This was a really incredible experience. Leila shared such an insightful perspective on the heritage of Sélestat, which gave me an appreciation for the buildings and history that I wouldn't have had otherwise. There is just so much value and beauty in understanding the history and knowing the story, and Leila translated that through the tour. There were some really memorable moments during the tour, including some personal touches. Leila inspired you to feel a connection to history and people who played a part in creating it. Would definitely recommend 🙂

It's hard to describe the tour I just experienced with Leila. it was so interesting, so educational, so immersive. Leila has a very deep and expansive knowledge of Sélestat and the Alsaçian region. It's such a pretty town but we talked about so much more. And yes, I said "talked:" it was part discussion, part lecture but all amazing. I HIGHLY recommend this tour!
