At the heart of Europe, Alsace is a region full of places of interest and wonderful things to do. Offering a large variety of activities, Alsace has an abundance of natural, architectural and cultural gems: Vosges forests and mountains, charming floral villages, medieval castles, wealth of Romanesque churches and cities with an exceptional heritage. Renowned for its prestigious Wine Trail ("Route des Vins") and its big breweries, this region is also known for its authentic traditions ranging from the Alsatian culinary specialities and typical inns, to friendly festivals and enchanting Christmas markets.
The Bas-Rhin is home to Strasbourg, European city famous for its picturesque old town and its Gothic cathedral, but also the mount Sainte-Odile and its convent, the majestic Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, as well as many pretty villages that are very well-preserved.
