Riquewihr (German: Reichenweier) is a commune in the Haut-Rhin department in Alsace in northeastern France.

A popular tourist attraction for its historical architecture, Riquewihr is also known for the Riesling and other great wines produced in the village. Riquewihr looks today more or less as it did in the 16th century.

Geography

Riquewihr is only 7 miles (11 km) from Colmar and minutes from other Alsatian villages such as Ribeauvill├ę, Hunawihr, Eguisheim or Kaysersberg.

History

Originally the property of the Dukes of W├╝rttemberg, the town was converted to Protestantism in the 16th century. Historically, Reichenweiher served as a Winzerdorf or "wine village" as a trading hub for Alsatian and German wine.
