Alsace, Burgundy or Vienna? Please help!

I am taking a poll, which would be the most fun on a short 4 day vacation? Alsace, Burgundy or Vienna? I like eating, drinking, seeing pretty scenery , great architecture and meeting nice people.

definitely go for Burgundy !

especially eating/drinking is better...
dijon/beaune offer lovely old architecture
the scenery up the hills of the vineyyards is pretty (not as nice as the alsace i have to admit)
and the people you meet love to eat well and drink excellent wine

vienna is well... grand..., but excluded ... wine & food can't be compared to burgundy !

Definitely Burgundy!

2 must-sees are Epoisses (Impressive 1,000 year old fortified Medieval then Renaissance castle) and fabulous cheese (sells in the US). Also check out a local speciality: a cheese pastry called Gougere which you can buy at a boulangerie just around the corner from the entrance to the castle.

2.5 Hours drive from Paris on the Southern Motorway A6.

Other places of interest are: Semur En Auxois, Vezelay and Fontenay Abbey.

The most underrated and most beautiful part of France!

Having been to all 3, I would vote for Alsace because of its interesting mix of cultures as well as the wines, food, people and architecture.
