Whether you’re a connoisseur of fine wines, passionate about history and culture, or simply looking for a picturesque getaway, we have the perfect experience for you: an exploration of Alsace’s famous Wine Route with the Kutzig bus.

What is the Kutzig bus?

The Kutzig bus is an original and enjoyable way to discover the Alsace Wine Route. This double-decker bus, or “décoiffé” as it’s called in Alsatian, lets you travel in comfort through Alsace’s vineyards while enjoying panoramic views of the magnificent scenery. You can hop on and off the bus as often as you like, offering total flexibility to explore the region’s charming villages and renowned vineyards.

Why choose Kutzig?

  1. Flexibility and freedom: Kutzig gives you the freedom to create your own itinerary. Hop on and off the bus as you please to explore each village at your own pace.

  2. Comfort and panoramic view: the double-decker bus offers a breathtaking view of the vineyards and landscapes of Alsace. It’s a comfortable and relaxing way to travel. What’s more, the buses are equipped with USB sockets and wifi for your convenience.

  3. Information and commentary: Thanks to the Kutzig mobile app, you can track the bus’s location in real time, consult timetables, buy tickets and access detailed audio commentary on the vineyards and villages you visit. The app also offers ideas for visits and activities for each village served.

  4. Sunday availability: One of the great advantages of Kutzig is that it operates on Sundays, when the public transport network is usually inactive. During the week, you can take other bus routes in the Fluo Grand Est network to visit the villages along the Alsace Wine Route (see below).

How the Kutzig sightseeing bus works

The Kutzig bus operates like the Hop on Hop off buses often found in major cities. You buy your bus ticket for the day (tickets can be purchased online or from the driver) and then you can use it as many times as you like: you can get on and off at will all day long.

The shuttle passes through each village every 1.5 hours, ensuring sufficient regularity. The Kutzig runs from April to October, with a first departure from Colmar at 8:30 a.m. and a return at 9:10 p.m. at the latest:
