    Crazy I’ve never heard of this beautiful place called Eguisheim, steeped in history as well as lovely flowers and cute buildings. I’d like to check out Castle and the Church of Saint-Peter and Saint-Paul and love that they are trying to re-introduce storks to the region. Would definitely like to visit here, thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Vanessa, I’m glad to hear that you like it. It was also a surprise for me, I didn’t actually know this village existed until I saw it from my partner’s phone, he showed it to me and proposed to visit it one day. Finally we did and so contented of our visit, due to our limited time we haven’t explored all the corners of the town but surely if you’ll go there save a one day city trip.

    Wow! I never knew of such a village. It’s so beautiful and colourful with lovely gingerbread houses.. Looks like a village from some fairy tale movie. Definitely a must visit place. Added to my bucket list. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  16. This place is hauntingly beautiful owing to a vibe that the cobbled roads, and structures that cut the road in the middle. I have seen a similar road like this in Bombay (India), and fell in love with that place.

    • Alexine says:

      Thank you Needa, can’t wait to see you photos as well, it would really be nice to take high quality photos in this village. Apparently mine is only took from my phone, I regret not bringing my canon with me that day.

    Just WOW ! This is a beautiful post Lexie. Only sometimes in life you come across something as beautiful as this. All i can say is your four hours long drive was a success, at least am going there when I am in France. No matter how beautiful Eiffel tower looks on the internet, we aren’t big fan of conventional sightseeing, and we are always looking for hidden treasures. I have almost fallen in love with little gingerbread village. Although a difficult name to remember. . Eguisheim.. haha.. but its unbelievably colourful, flowery and postcard pretty. And hats off to you for capturing those shots, you have a photographer in you ! Train from Basel will work best for us i believe, am already excited. Thanks.

    • Alexine says:

      Wow, so glad ot hear that Moimehr, I’m sure you guys will enjoy it. It’s a worth to visit place, I think one whole day will be enough except if you want to visit all the vineyards and taste all the wines. I can’t wait to see you photos, happy traveling!

  21. I love a place with so much character to it. This is wonderful!
