    Off the map?!

    by rexvaughan Written Jun 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I looked in my European road atlas and Hunawihr is not on the map!! I did find one on the internet of course. I don't know if it is served by any of the Wine Road tours or buses so driving is probably the best bet. It is just off the main road between Riquewihr and Ribeauville and only about 25 km from Colmar. I think the road is D1-8 and is also known as the Route des Vins Alsace.
