In Alsace you can experience a magical atmosphere!
With houses that look like made of gingerbread, colorful and fancy !
A glance in the history books reveals that the region was marked by a power struggle between two of the largest cultural areas in Europe. Thus, in the French region, which received its name in the early Middle Ages, in some places there is also a second, German inscription on guesthouses and restaurants.
The largest city in Alsace is definitely Strasbourg.
Here you will find a very impressive Roman Catholic Church: the Muenster. In order to climb it, one had to climb 332 steps.
Our Strasbourg tip:
Buy yourself a Strasbourg Pass that is valid for 3 days. This will give you free access to a number of attractions and a remarkable discount. Don’t forget to attend the film and the explanations about the astronomical clock at noon. Very impressive!
Between the peaks of the Vosges and the Alsatian lowlands you will find many medieval settlements such as Ribeauville, Riquewihr, Colmar and Eguisheim. We strongly recommend visiting a local tavern in the heart of the Alsatian wine region and savouring its delicacies.
When we arrived in Colmar we were greeted by the “original” Statue of Liberty. Did you know that Auguste Bartholdi, born here, designed it for New York?
Colmar is a small romantic town – a boat trip through the little Venice will make any heart beat faster.
A visit to Colmar is also worthwhile at Christmas time. His Christmas market has just been nominated as one of the most beautiful in Europe.
