the 4th stop on our @vanceptual alsace road trip was a little village called #kaysersberg.
_
smaller than the places we visited before but with the weiss river it had a different feel to it. crossed by a lovely 16th century fortified stone bridge further adding to the charming picture.

moody evening vibes in #riquewihr. ✨

the view of the dolder tower, which was an integral part of the fortified wall and could serve to defend the village thanks to its watch tower located at the top of the belfry.

as always it was the best to explore the village in the early morning. without all the people it just feels like a completely different place and way more like a personal 'connection' in the end.

a little #wisteriahysteria in #riquewihr. 💜

so many wonderful little details and structures all around the village and its architecture made it so special to explore that place.

catching the first light of the day in #riquewihr. ✨

this picture-perfect place was the third stop on our @vanceptual trip through the alsace. the medieval village looks today more or less as it did in the 16th century. this is the view through the dolder tower, which was an integral part of the fortified wall and could serve to defend the village thanks to its watch tower located at the top of the belfry.

#eguisheim is a postcard.

when me and @starhamburg got lost in the alleys of this pretty alsatian town we quickly realized why its listed among the most beautiful of france.

the village is built with streets arranged in concentric circles all around its castle and it‘s a pleasure to wander around the narrow paved streets full of beautiful old half-timbered houses.

#eguisheim, you kitchy little thing.
_
all those colours and unique houses almost didn’t make it feel like a 'real' town. i kept wondering how it would look like when it’s all in bloom in the summer.

second stop on our @vanceptual alsace tour was the little but beautiful #eguisheim.
_

in this town you’ll basically find the longest alley ever. the 'rue du remparts' is a circular route around the city center and takes you back into old times.

sunset vibes in beautiful #colmar.
the area that is crossed by canals of the river lauch is now called "little venice". when the little boats are floating by during the day you can tell why it fits.

found this gingerbread house in the middle of #colmar.

we‘re kinda overwhelmed by all those picturesque towns in the #alsace area. all that history, the half-timbered houses and especially all those colors behind every corner.

the fishmonger's district is the place where most of the professional fishermen and boatmen of colmar lived.

yes, my little hometown even has a castle. 😉 i wish the impressive. castle park would have been in bloom already. the present #lütetsburg castle is a modern, four-wing construction that was built 1956-1962 on the 1517 foundation walls. the family zu inn- und knyphausen continues to lives there today.
