I was looking for a nice walk, neither too long nor too far from Strasbourg. With the wine trail of Wangen, a 5 km loop that can be done in 1h30 (2h with some breaks!), I was pleasantly surprised! The view on the vineyard, the most northern of the Alsace Wine Route, but also on the Black Forest, Strasbourg and the Vosges, was magnificent and the path very pleasant.
The walk starts on the parking lot of the village hall in Wangen (rue des Vignes). Follow the green circle markers to climb slowly but surely through the village and then the vineyards. The 20 to 30 minute climb is worth it: an almost 360° view of the surroundings! I didn’t expect such a nice view.
The path continues on the heights of the vineyard, where you will soon find a recent shelter in very good condition of the Club Vosgien. Perfect for a break! The Wangen wine trail leads you through tall fir trees, a completely different atmosphere. Then it’s time to go down through the forest on a small path. You will quickly reach the vineyards and then the village.
I strongly recommend you to visit it. With its old houses, its alleys, the Niedertor (an old tower from the 13th century) and its surrounding wall, Wangen is a really charming village.
