Eguisheim was voted France’s favorite village back in 2013, and it’s remarkably easy to see why. After conquering the village the Romans cultivated and encouraged the region’s wine culture, and it is now an area which is highly reputed for producing fine Alsace wines. Thanks to its picturesque timber-framed buildings with colorful shutters and cobbled streets, the town has long been overwhelmingly popular with tourists. Archaeological excavations have confirmed a human presence in the area dating back to the Palaeolithic Age, and the village lays claim to being the home of a former Pope of the Catholic church, Leo IX.
