Alsace. Riquewihr and Turckheim

Riquewihr is officially considered to be one of the prettiest villages in France. And it really is worth seeing! The whole old center is really well preserved and absolutely beautiful. It is really popular among tourists and we were smart enough to make a dinner reservation. The restaurant where we had dinner got really packed.  And now I'll let the photos do the talking.



Very self-explanatory restaurant sign

Last small town we visited before returning to Colmar was Turckheim. Turckheim has also quite well preserved old center but it's much quieter there than in the other towns in the area. I guess it's still a little bit undiscovered by the tourists. So if you want to stay in a nice town that is not yet so touristic then I recommend Turckheim.
