Riquewihr photo gallery


This pretty village in France is the perfect fairytale setting and classified as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France.”  My favorite town as you may have noticed, I wrote about it in my previous post → Alsace France

Riquewihr a medieval town in the heart of the vineyards of Alsace, France. The charming half-timbered houses were built between 15th-18th century and with a Dolder that was used as a defense/gate from the 13th century.

Posting below the photos taken from this pretty village. This is where “Beauty and the Beast” got their movie inspiration. And you’ll see in these pictures why ❤️ Some I have posted already in Instagram 😊 


houses are decorated with beautiful & bright colored flowers in spring/summer


Riquewihr almost looks as if it has just dropped out of a fairytale book


the best way to explore this town is by foot, and there are little museums which feature their wine and cheese making, old postal history, etc.

another “Beauty and the Beast” inspiration is this quaint fountain


the winemaker’s house, dates back to 16th century

Riquewihr, like their wine, gets better with time

Indeed, Riquewihr is a very charming village. It has preserved its tradition and beauty, still unchanged even after 400 years.
