Wettolsheim - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Haut-Rhin

Wettolsheim is a town of 1721 inhabitants, located 5 km south-west of Colmar. It stretches at the foot of the vineyard dominated by famous ruins: the Hohlandsbourg, the Trois Châteaux, and, huddled in the forest, the Hagueneck.

"Wetelsheim" appears for the first time in the texts in 1211, but the village dates back to the period of Frankish colonization. The village's antiquity is attested by the presence in the cemetery of a very old church, the Feldkirch, demolished in 1780.

For 30 years, the city has expanded, but the tourist will discover with pleasure multiple Old houses restored with care.

Wettolsheim, the first wine-growing commune of Haut-Rhin, produces the whole range of wines from Alsace, including the Grands Crus "Steingrubler". About 85 families of vine growers harvest about 450 hectares of vines. The wines of Wettolsheim are renowned for their quality of finesse and bouquet.
