Day 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.

Here's what our customers say about how much there is to do in Alsace:

"What we liked best were the small, colorful, and unique villages. The miles of green vineyards. People were helpful and charming and gracious." Paul Roloff

"The location is wonderful. Our daughter suggested it and we loved exploring the towns. We found the whole experience very relaxing and our life there very easy to manage. People were pleasant and helpful as we sampled the wines and new cheeses." Benjamin Gilson

"We took a delightful three-hour drive to St Die and a couple of small villages on the way. It was stunning. Do not fail to see the Vosges. And Haut Koenigsburg is memorable. Walk!" John Sorvari

"Alsace was drop-dead gorgeous!" Linda Farmer

"Having the freedom to plan our own days and sightsee with the security of knowing we had someone to help us if we needed it was wonderful." Miriam Hinnant
