The generous nature of Alsace makes itself felt in the opulence of its flower-filled villages, the renown of its large cities, the splendour of its landscape, the delights of its cuisine and, of course, the diversity of its grape varieties! Endless opportunities for sampling history, culture, nature and leisure activities await visitors, all without your ever having to stray far from the Rhine.
You can visit Strasbourg, the European city, with its magnificent cathedral, the typically Alsatian Colmar with its charming canals, the prestigious industrial museums of Mulhouse, and the Musée Lalique in Meisental. Go for a hike in the awe-inspiring Vosges Mountains, following either the impressive Route des Crêtes or the promising-sounding Route des Vins, and take in a landscape that is as varied as the region's cuisine.
Indeed, from sauerkraut to gugelhupf, from Munster to Bargkass, from Riesling to Kirsch, the range of culinary delights is outstanding!
Throw in the magic of the Christmas markets, a veritable institution in the region, and you'll be hooked!
