"In Kintzheim, l'empereur de la Tarte flambée!" Kintzheim by JLBG

Kintzheim Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 19 photos

Kintzheim is a superb village of 1,500, on the « Route des Vins » (wines road), 6 km west from Sélestat. Unfortunately, I have no photo to show. We had booked dinner at Auberge Saint Martin on a busy day (Sunday) and when we arrived it was too late to wander in the city to take photos though the light was excellent ! When we went out of the restaurant, the front of the houses around the main street were not light anymore and photos would not have done justice to them. I chose not to take any, better that to have dull pictures.

However, you will find a few pictures of Kintzheim on this web site.

Kintzheim is a perfect place to have dinner if you plan to visit the castle of the Haut Koenigsbourg.

In the past, the village was named Niederkunighsheim, which became Kintzheim. In order to avoid any confusion between the castle and the village, the Koenigsbourg castle became the Haut Koenigsbourg castle.

    Even though it's early morning here, your food descriptions were so tantalizing that I'm wishing to eat a whole meal! LOL about the dog drinking from the fountain. Delightful read!

    I remember Spätzle very well during my two years in Germany. Quite a popular dish indeed.

    Wow, what an amazing array of local dishes!! The Baekaoffe especially caught my eye because I cooked myself a stew on Saturday - my special meatballs, beef broth, potatoes, carrots, turnip, parsnip & onions with a dash of Worcestershire, Tabasco & pepper!
