Visit of the Sundgau – The Largue Valley

by | Nov 27, 2018 | Cities and villages, Open on sundays | 0 comments


The Sundgau is a region located in the South of Alsace, between Mulhouse and Basel (in Switzerland). Slightly less quaint than the Wine Route, it is also less touristy and is worth the visit if you have a little bit of time. The Sundgau is an agricultural region with very green landscapes. So, what to do when in Sundgau? I would recommend for example a visit to the Largue Valley, home to flowery villages and colorful half-timbered houses.

You can go from one village to another by car and take the time to stop in each of them for a short stroll. The villages are not very big, but they are very pretty. I went to Ueberstrass, Friesen, Hindlingen, Strueth, Saint-Ulrich, Altenach and finally Manspach. My pictures are mostly from Friesen, because the weather wasn’t so good that day (to be honest it was pouring down with rain), except when I was in Friesen! It’s also my favorite village: it is packed with charming houses.

I liked

  • The colorful half-timbered houses and their flowery balconies
  • The peacefulness: there are not many tourists around!

I liked a little less

  • Villages are still a little bit less charming than those on the Wine Route
