Located 45 km S of Strasbourg and 63 km N of Mulhouse, Selestat was once the intellectual capital of Alsace and is most famous for its Bibliotheque Humaniste. Other points of interest include the 12th-century Eglise Ste-Foy with its octagonal bell tower; the nearby Eglise St-Georges; the Tour de l'Horloge, a medieval clock tower, and the Cour des Prelats, a turreted ivy-covered mansion. Within a few kilometers of the city are several sites containing castle ruins, most notably at Dambach-la-Ville, Scherwiller and Kintzheim. Centrally located between Strasbourg and Colmar, Selestat is a good base from which to explore the Route du Vin.
