Auenheim is the ideal starting point for a number of activities.

To begin with, the picturesque village of Auenheim merits a sightseeing tour. Records as early as 888 A.D. mention the village of Auenheim which has delighted many a tourist with attractions such as the carefully restored middle-aged timbered houses, the nearby river Rhine and its wetlands.

The area between the Black Forest and the Vosges offers endless possibilities to help make your holiday an enjoyable experience, they include: bicycle and walking tours along the Rhine to hiking throughout the beautiful Black Forest, a visit of the “Schwarzwälder Freilichtmuseum Vogts Bauernhof“ (The Black Forest Open Air Museum) where you can discover how people lived and worked 400 years ago in mills and farmhouses. You can also visit many beautiful small towns and villages such as Gengenbach, with its historical centre, Lahr and Offenburg, Europa Park, the leisure park near the village of Rust which is a big attraction in the region, excursions to the beautiful Titisee and Schluchsee lakes, the waterfalls of Triberg and a day trip to the eco-capital of Freiburg.

And last but not least, there are many things to do and see on the other side of the Rhine: Alsace, Vosges and Strasbourg, the European metropolis with its many sights.

Strasbourg is an absolute must-see just with its 2000 years of history, its famous cathedral built in the 12th Century and the historical centre which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage in 1988. Discovering the European institutions whilst enjoying a boat trip on the river Ill and waterways crossing the city is also a great opportunity to admire the marvellous city.

Have a break and relax in one of the hundreds of restaurants, brasseries and pavement cafés which serve you countless traditional Alsatian specialities and other delicious French dishes.

In the wintertime, especially during the advent season and up until the 31st December, Strasbourg shows you a different face when its Christmas market transforms the city into a magical Christmas-wonderland. Started in 1570, Strasbourg has the oldest and biggest Christmas market in France giving the city the title ‘Capital of Christmas“.

A plenitude of fairy lights, decorations, fanciful decorated façades, Christmas carols and concerts near the cathedral, a skating rink, more than hundred stall holders selling original gifts, Christmas tree ornaments, sweets and gingerbreads, delight both young and old alike. The unique and magical atmosphere is especially inspiring after sunset, when thousands of fairy lights transform the city illuminating the giant Christmas tree in Place Kleber, shop windows and façades.

The authentic Vosges, the Alsatian wine route and a rich diversity of fascinating landscapes have drawn many a visitor to the region. Numerous “winstub“ invite visitors to take a break and enjoy a glass of Alsatian Riesling and a tarte flambée allowing you to relax and to forget about your troubles for a while.
