Alsace area - best walks and towns for a 6 night stay

We will be in the Alsace area for 6 nights and still cannot decide where to stay, but an important factor is getting in some time on some footpaths, to see the countryside, and getting in some nice meals in the evening. Not fancy meals, but delicious would be good.
This will be August.
Any footpaths that anyone can recommend in the area?
Any restaurants to recommend?
Which towns?

Beautiful circuit from Barr through the forests of the Vosges via the 3 13th C castle ruins. If you are really keen you can go all the way up to Mt Ste Odile. Tracks are well signposted and Barr Tourist info did have some maps. We did it in August in hot conditions but the Vosges is heavily wooded and was quite pleasant.
