Fancy a breath of fresh air, a return to the roots? Parks, gardens, nature reserves, the Ballon d’Alsace, the renowned Wine Route… Alsace can quench your thirst for greenery and fulfilment!
There are no less than 21 nature reserves in Alsace: if you want to be convinced, come to the Alsacian Petite Camargue, to the Delta de la Sauer or on the Rhinau Island where abundant creepers, a multitude of birds and root trees in the water will transport you far from the places you think you know.
Finally, gain height! Mountain enthusiasts will find happiness in Alsace by discovering the marked Alpine character of the Honeck Mountain or by admiring the magnificent Lac Blanc, overlooked by a rock in the shape of a fortress. Moreover, fortified castles highlighting the foothills of the Vosges, bunkers of the Maginot Line, the fortifications of Vauban listed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, just like Strasbourg and its Grande Ile. In Alsace, more than elsewhere, heritage rhymes with legacy.
A clever mix of German and French cultures, the wealth of our sometimes troubled past is marked in the Alsacian countryside. So, enthusiasts of stones loaded with history, travel through our towns and villages! And one cannot mention Alsacian heritage without mentioning the living heritage. You will be impressed by the know-how of craftsmen, in line with tradition with a touch of unsuspected modernity…
Alsace invites you to discover its traditional cuisine: Alsacian recipes (Sauerkraut, flammekuche, pie outbreak …), wines, local products and gastronomic routes (Alsace Wine Route). Its cuisine is distinguished by its know-how 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, which are meeting places that reflect what the Alsacian love above all: sharing good things, which is typically French!
