Ammerschwihr is a small village, nestled into the wine growing region of the Alsace, is literally surrounded by green hills and vineyards. It’s the classic French village experience, located on the wine tour through the region, offering visitors the chance to kick back and enjoy a beautiful day in season.
Bavarian influences can be seen in the town, with just a perhaps a bit of Swiss influence here and there, but what stands out the most is the friendly nature of this community. You will find a smile everywhere you go. Are you planning on stopping by Ammerschwihr for a visit? Here are some of the things you can expect to do when you make this village your destination.
Classic Dining At Its Best Can Be Found in Ammerschwihr
Ammerschwihr has the classic experience in many ways. Narrow streets that seem to crowd you, yet one still feels like there is plenty of room. There’s also the classic French dining experience at Aux Armes de France, yet it has a particularly updated feeling. You can get the frog’s leg terrine with Riesling or a lobster gratin, yet still have access to a modern wine list that will encourage you to spend more than you possibly wish to spend. Rustic guest rooms upstairs encourage you to drink an extra glass of wine and call it a night.
When you’re finished with a great meal or you’ve gained enough liquid courage, take your skills out to Golf Ammerschwihr. It’s one of the most unique courses you’ll be able to enjoy and the length of 5,200 meters is enough to be challenging. With the vineyards in your view and a sky that stretches out to the horizon, this is an afternoon that you’re not going to want to miss.
Visit the Church of St. Martin For Amazing Music
The Church of St. Martin dominates the landscape of the village and in many ways, it is a rather standard religious site to visit. What makes it unique is the organ that is in the vestry of the church. The 3,200 pipe organ has been painstakingly restored by the community and the sounds that it is able to create are simply incredible.
If you happen to be visiting Ammerschwihr in November or December, you might also be able to join in on one of the local hunting sessions. Wild boar and other game are available to hunt for limited periods of time at the end of the year. If you manage to catch something, then there’s a good chance that one of the local restaurants will help to create an amazing meal from your efforts.
While in this commune, be sure to enjoy some time wandering about the various shops and bakeries that line the streets. In the Cornfield is one of our favorites, offering homemade baked bread in the classic French methods while providing regional vegetables and specialty groceries for that quick bite to eat. Bakery Lorang is a close second with its tea room and pastry creams.
Ammerschwihr offers the small village experience on a large scale. If you’re looking for a great way to get away for awhile, then join the wine tour, stroll through this beautiful village, and have a wonderful time.
