Selestat and its surroundings offer colourful landscapes. Any colour has its atmosphere and its specialties! A stay in this beautiful corner of Alsace allows you to visit the one or other marvellous attraction.

The massif of Haut-Koenigsbourg

Put a hilly landscape with castles and forests in front of the scenery of the blue Vosges: You will discover the incomparable Chateau du Haut-Koenigsbourg, the Montagne des Singes (park that accommodates more than 200 monkeys in total liberty) and the Volerie des Aigles (spectacular raptor show). Laughter and emotions to share with the family!

The vineyard

Vineyards as far as you can see, a street that meanders through the vineyards, the bright pink of geraniums on the balconies of half-timbered houses remind you that you find yourself in the picturesque Alsace, the one of the Route des Vins and the blooming villages. Simplicity, authenticity, and smiles await you in the basements of the villages of Châtenois, Dieffenthal, Kintzheim, Scherwiller and Orschwiller – destinations for a tasting.

Le Ried

Here, the expression “green” becomes as real as never before. Le Ried is a unique patchwork with large fields, dense forests and a preserved wildlife. A true little jungle which one can explore barefoot by following the trail “SensoRied” or by taking a bike or canoe tour in the regional nature reserve of “Illwald”.

The city of Selestat

Selestat, called the city of art and history, this city of old stones, brown colours, witnesses of past centuries. Each side street is a time travel, historic, lively and active, the city is home to an extraordinary heritage, varied styles and epochs. Located in the heart of the historic centre, the Humanist Library, a treasure of the Renaissance, brings an exceptional collection of ancient works (VII to XVI century) to light. It is impossible to miss the giant Sletto, whose legend tells that he founded the city of Selestat. A tour invites you to follow the tracks of this illustrated figure.
