The three-country region shared by Germany, France, and Switzerland is protected by the Jura and Vosges Mountains, the Palatinate and Black Forests, and the Kaiserstuhl, making this area along the Rhine home to mild temperatures and lots of sunshine almost year-round.

Three picturesque wine routes lead through the Palatinate, Alsace, and Baden regions to historical sights and enchanting wine villages and taverns. Rustic taverns offer homemade snacks and the best wines from the Upper Rhine Valley: Riesling, Silvaner, Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir. Visitors can experience viticulture tradition at wine festivals or on wine-themed hikes through lovely orchards and vineyards.

Culinary temptations also abound, from farmers’ markets and shops to traditional cafés and mountain inns. The region also boasts over 60 Michelin stars and delicacies from each country, like France’s tarte flambée and foie gras; Germany’s venison and Black Forest cake; and Switzerland’s chocolates and cheeses.
