Fancy a breath of fresh air and a return to simpler times? Parks, gardens, nature reserves, the Ballon d’Alsace, the renowned Wine Route… Alsace can quench your thirst for greenery and fulfilment!
There are 21 nature reserves in Alsace! Wander through the lush Alsatian Petite Camargue and the peaceful Delta de la Sauer. Stroll around Rhinau Island where abundant creepers, a multitude of birds, and twisted trees will transport you far from the places you think you know.
Mountain enthusiasts will find happiness in Alsace on the marked Alpine character of the Honeck Mountain. Admire the magnificent Lac Blanc, overlooked by a rock in the shape of a fortress.
Fortified castles highlight the foothills of the Vosges and the bunkers of the Maginot Line. The fortifications of Vauban are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, just like Strasbourg and its Grande Ile. In Alsace, more than elsewhere, heritage compliments legacy.
A curious mix of German and French cultures, the wealth of the area’s sometimes troubled past is marked in the Alsacian countryside. Enthusiasts of stones loaded with history will love the walk through Alscae’s towns and villages! Heritage is still truly alive in the villages you will walk through, through skills passed down through generations. You will be impressed by the know-how of craftsmen, in line with tradition with a touch of modern adaption.
Alsace invites you to discover its traditional cuisine, from Sauerkraut and flammekuche to flakey pies and local produce bursting with flavour. You will have plenty to choose from in terms of wines as well along the Alsace Wine Route.
Alsatian cuisine is distinguished by its techniques and taste, for both savoury and sweet dishes. Thousands of flavours will accompany your meal eaten in a starred restaurant, a bierstub or a winstub. These meeting places reflect what the Alsatians love above all: sharing good things.
