WHAT TO DO ON YOUR ALSACE VACATIONDay trips: Strasbourg (home to the European Parliament and one of France’s most cosmopolitan cities), Black Forest in Germany (just over an hour’s drive), Mulhouse (town with second most museums in all of France), Basel, just across the border is one of Switzerland’s most sophisticated cities and all the fairy-tale villages along the Route des Vins (wine road)
Sightseeing: The majestic pink sandstone cathedral in Strasbourg, Petite Venise (“little Venice”) neighborhood in Colmar, Ecomusée in Ungersheim, the beautifully restored Haut-Koenigsbourg castle. For a change of pace, try the well-reviewed automobile museum in Mulhouse or a dramatic mountain drive through the Vosges.
Off-the-beaten-track attractions that can’t be beat: Hikes in the Vosges Mountains and a stop at a ferme-auberge for a hearty, homemade lunch; local village festivals dedicated to regional products such as wine, cheese, and choucroute (a delicious dish made of sauerkraut, potatoes, meat); a bike ride through the lush vineyards. Lovers of great art should not miss the world-class collection (some of Cezanne’s, Monet’s, Klee’s and Rothko’s best pieces) in a small, jewel-like museum called Fondation Beyeler, just outside of Basel.
