Bordered by the Vosges Mountains and the Black Forest of Germany, the Alsace region has a distinctly Germanic flavour, both culturally and gastronomically.
A famous wine making region, with fruity white wines, Alsace is also the leading region in terms of beer production, producing about 70% of all French beer.
Foodies will love this region, which has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other region in France!
A winding network of rivers and canals, wending its way through this rich landscape of forests and nature reserves, makes this the ideal region for nature lovers.
Sporty guests can enjoy swimming, walking, cycling and water activities, while those more interested in history and architecture will appreciate the Gothic cathedrals and Baroque Palaces of Strasbourg, Metz, Nancy and Saarbrucken.
Amongst the waterways to discover are the Canal des Vosges, Canal de la Marne au Rhin, Canal des Houillères de la Sarre, and the rivers Meuse, Moselle and Sarre.
