A land of wine, Alsace cultivates its festive tradition. Unmissable events of the summer period, the wine festivals are the ideal opportunity to meet the winegrowers and fall under the spell of the typical villages of the Alsace Wine Route!

The effervescence of festivals

All summer long, music festivals are in full swing in Alsace! Dedicated to jazz, electro, rock or classical music, vibrate to the sound of these exceptional cultural events. On the program: big names, discoveries galore, eclectic posters and music-loving festival-goers!

Mingle with the crowd and vibrate until the end of the night in a permanent effervescence. Choose your festival from a wide range of activities, so you can swing all summer long in an atmosphere that is as festive as it is friendly!

Discover the castles

There are many opportunities for you to explore a vibrant nature. Enjoy an invigorating stroll to visit one of our many castles! Emerging from the flamboyant forests, these stone sentinels mark the landscape of Alsace and overlook, often above a sea of clouds, the valleys and plains. Fascinating, each one is unique but all offer breathtaking panoramas!

Walks in the city or in the countryside

In the summer, entertainment punctuates the Alsatian towns. Festivals, shows, illuminations, concerts and sports activities of all kinds take over the streets to celebrate summer in a good mood!

If for many people summer rhymes with moments of relaxation, treat yourself to a break in a park around a good picnic or with the latest bestseller of the summer. And why not take the opportunity for a well-deserved nap in the shade of a hundred-year-old tree?

Unless you prefer a small drink on the terrace, the fan of beautiful summer days and the ideal moment for a refreshing interlude.

The beautiful summer days are back and with them the desire to escape into the middle of nature! Alsace can be discovered along numerous hiking routes where the variety of landscapes will never cease to surprise you. Forests, vineyards, plains and Vosges peaks offer splendid scenery for all kinds of adventures.

There are plenty of walking options to make the most of the summer sun: find the perfect route among more than 17,000 km of marked trails. In case of high heat, escape to the mountain lakes to enjoy a pure moment of freshness!
