At the heart of Europe, Alsace holds a rich and varied cultural heritage. Immerse yourself in the quaint atmosphere of picturesque half-timbered villages, medieval castles and golden vineyards. Cycle along the picturesque Wine Route and take a side-trip to one of the authentic farms manufacturing the renowned Munster cheese. Visit Strasbourg and take a stroll through the peaceful quarter of “La Petite France” towered by the impressive Strasbourg Cathedral, stop for a drink and bite to eat in one of the cozy wine taverns in “Little Venice”, the romantic quarter of Colmar; the city also hosts the famous museum Unterlinden. Special highlights are the Haut-Koenigsbourg perched on a majestic sandstone rock, and the picturesque village of Riquewihr with its intact cityscape from the 16th century, its ramparts built in 1291 are particularly well preserved. Also worth the detour is the Ecomusée d’Alsace, a veritable open air museum village recreating the Alsace region. Alsace is also a hikers’ paradise, numerous well-signposted hiking trails lead through Hohwald and Champ du Feu; the Regional Natural Park Ballons des Vosges, a world biosphere reserve, offers a unique nature experience. Don’t miss an occasion to participate in one of the cheerful Alsatian village fairs and enjoy the rural charm of this region!
