This place is not on the top things to do in Strasbourg list but it should be. The cellar holds the world's oldest white wine (dating to 1472!!!) and has some interesting wine barrels and other things to see and this was a great find. They also have a lovely wine store.
I'm a wine buff, so found this very interesting. Even if you're not into wine it would still be worth a look. It has the oldest wine in the world here and only takes 20 mins or so to go around and have a look. You can also buy so great wines from the shop after having a look around... 更多

There is nothing comparable to this in... 更多
Amazing to see the age of the wine barrels. You can saw the older white wine in the world. You can find a large selection of Alsatian wines to buy. If you are drunk, you will not so far from the hospital :D
This visit was part of an excursion during our Rhine River Cruise. Would not have found the place by ourselves as the entry point to the wine cellar is not well marked. Our "host" has worked at the wine cellar about 18 months and was very excited to share the history. Old barrels, lots of wine, great afternoon.
