Welcome to Bergheim
Enclosed by a sturdy 14th-century ring wall, overflowing with geraniums and enlivened by half-timbered houses in vivid pastels, Bergheim is a joy to behold. But things have not always been so cheerful: overlords, stampeding invaders, women burnt at the stake for witchcraft – this tiny village has seen the lot.
Stroll the cobbled streets of the well-preserved medieval centre or follow the 2km path that circumnavigates the town’s ramparts. Bergheim’s grand cru wine labels are Kanzlerberg and Altenberg de Bergheim.
