My favourite month : June. The beginning of summer.
My favourite attraction : the Fête de la Musique. It’s always nice to soak up the summer atmosphere, wandering from square to square and enjoying a drink or an ice cream on a terrace…
My favourite spot : The Ehn trail, a wonderful natural environment just a stone’s throw from the town centre! I particularly enjoy the springtime for walking and taking in the fragrance of the first flowers, or the summer for jogging in the cool air alongside the river... And why not make the most of your stroll by having a picnic at the Parc de la Léonardsau!

My favourite month : May. The flowers are in bloom in and around Obernai and the vineyards are an ocean of green.
My favourite attraction : The Easter egg hunt through the town. It’s always nice to see the sparkle in the children’s eyes when you give them a little chocolate gift when they get an answer right.
My favourite spot : The Léonardsau Gardens in the spring or during a concert at the Obernai Chamber Music Festival
Obernai in 4 words : Beautiful, lively, mouth-watering, welcoming

My favourite month : September. The mild weather of late summer makes this a wonderful time of year to explore the brightly coloured vineyards.
My favourite attraction : The Schenkenberg Gastronomic Trail which is held on the last Sunday in August in Obernai. It’s a fun and festive time for gourmets, foodies, merrymakers and anyone who loves fine fare, in the heart of the Obernai winelands.
My favourite spot : Mont Sainte-Odile
Obernai in 4 words : Dynamic, proud, festive, mouth-watering
My favourite month : December, for all the Christmas magic
My favourite attraction : The Christmas market is a fairytale experience that reminds me of some cherished childhood moments. There’s something to appeal to all my senses. I love looking at the lights and the warm colours, savouring the fragrance and delicious taste of the mulled wine or hot chocolate, relaxing to the Christmas music...
My favourite spot : The public park It really is the town’s “green lung” and I find it very revitalising.
Obernai in 4 words : Grand, friendly, colourful, festive
My favourite season : Autumn It’s a colourful season packed with traditions. It’s the time of year when the harvests are underway, with “vin nouveau” evenings, (where we enjoy nuts, cold meats and bacon... as well as the grape juice which has just started to ferment). It’s also a season during which the weather is still fine and warm.
My favourite attraction : The Folklore evenings to sample a genuine Obernai “tartine” washed down with a good beer. I’m already familiar with the folk dances and know Christian the organiser well, but I still greatly enjoy going with my friends and family. There is a warm and friendly atmosphere between Obernai’s residents and tourists.
My favourite spot : Just a stone’s throw from the town centre, the Ehn trails are perfect for walking. You can go for a walk or go jogging (as I enjoy doing) in the forest, alongside the Ehn, the small river which passes through Obernai.
Obernai in 4 words : A concentration (of Alsace), friendly, medieval, unmissable

My favourite month : December. For the warm and friendly atmosphere to be found on the Christmas market, the Christmas illuminations, the smell of cinnamon and Obernai’s mulled wine (made with white wine).
My favourite attraction : “Tarte flambée” evenings at the campsite and Folklore evenings during the summer, where I enjoy getting together with friends after work for a drink... the ideal after work experience!
My favourite spot : The unexpected charm of the town centre’s narrow streets including rue de la chapelle, rue des pèlerins, rue des Capucins or rue des coqs... Few people take the time to explore them but you can find some really beautiful Alsatian houses and I love the peaceful atmosphere, particularly during the tourist season!

My favourite month : December because of its Christmas magic
My favourite attraction : Folklore evenings and Obernai tartine evenings
My favourite spot : the Mont National and its amazing view over the town and the surrounding area
Obernai in 4 words : like a good crémant: sparkling, heady, colourful, cheerful!
My favourite month : December
My favourite attraction : Bernardswiller’s “7 péchés capiteux” (7 intoxicating sins). When you take part in this walk led by an enthusiastic winemaker from the village, you can be sure you’re in for a memorable evening. It really has it all: magnificent landscapes, a great atmosphere, a friendly meal comprised of home-made dishes and wines.
My favourite spot : The unexpected beauty of the public park, just a stone’s throw from the town centre. It’s a real haven of peace. I enjoy relaxing on a bench among the huge trees from time to time, and admiring nature at its best. I particularly enjoy the peaceful atmosphere there.
Obernai in 4 words : Traditional, modern, beautiful, proud
