Date of visit: April 30, around 12:00 a.m.

Before you know it, it’s already midnight. The third village in Alsace today, the most beautiful village in France, is Hunawihr.

The village is almost next to « Riquewihr ». It is only a few minutes drive away. Very close.

However, it was a very simple and quiet village in contrast to Riquewihr which is crowded with tourists. You can hardly see any tourists.

But it is surrounded by vineyards, just like Riquewihr. I walked a little higher up to get a panoramic view of the village.

Then I went for a walk in the village. I only see the locals are walking around sometimes, tourists are only me, or maybe there was a couple of elderly people.

Like Riquewihr, the houses are Alsatian, but for some reason, they look calm.

There was only one restaurant, but it was there.

I was troubled whether it was good to go because it was just lunch, but I gave up because of the convenience of various times.

Now, we head to the symbol of the village, the church.

The view from the church elevation. The weather is getting better.

Inside. I’m the only one here.

I stayed for about half an hour, but I felt I was doing a « beautiful village tour » in such a quiet place without tourists. It was a very relaxing stay.

Next we will head to a beautiful village slightly further away from here. It will still take you 30 minutes to get there.
