Office de tourisme de Guebwiller - Alsace


Only two kilometres from Soultz and six kilometres from Guebwiller (6km), Jungholtz is nestled in a peaceful haven of greenery. The village offers numerous recreational and relaxing activities as it houses in particular a luxurious 1000 m2 hotel and spa sponsored by Adriana Karembeu.

The proximity of departure points for hikers and MTB circuits make it an ideal vacation spot for sports enthusiasts of all levels. Rides on horseback or horse-drawn carriage as well as the visit to the stork park will keep children of all ages entertained.
The touristic itinerary of the Route des Crêtes (Cliff road), accessible via the Col Amic (only in summer), guides you on a discovery of the Grand Ballon and the Vosges mountains.

The Thierenbach Basicila, an important pilgrimage dedicated to the Virgin Mary, is a major spiritual venue: each year, this venue attracts 300,000 visitors. Its collection, unique in Europe with more than a thousand votive offerings that carpet the walls in the form of painted tablets, wooden or marble plaques and other objects, are an arresting witness to the different eras and lifestyles of our ancestors.
