Strasbourg

— 29 nights

Crossroads of Europe

Strasbourg is famous for its beautiful historical center, the Grande Île, which was the first city center classified entirely as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Take a break from the city and head to La Volerie des Aigles and Maison de la Nature du Ried et de l'Alsace Centrale. Change things up with these side-trips from Strasbourg: Kintzheim (La Montagne des Singes & Cigoland - Parc des Cigognes et Attractions), Station de Ski Le Champ du Feu (in Belmont) and Blienschwiller (Domaine Hubert METZ & Domaine Hubert Meyer). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through La Petite France, explore the world behind art at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Strasbourg, make a trip to Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, and identify plant and animal life at Buvette aux Sept Ecluses.

Bas-Rhin meaning "Lower Rhine" is the more populous and densely populated of the two departments in the Alsace region known for its outstanding Gothic cathedrals. The River Rhine has always been of great historical and economic importance to the area forming the eastern border of the department that is also home to some of the foothills of the Vosges. The area has a heavy German influence due to its history from 1871 - 1919 as part of the German Empire. You'll find on your trip that many of the laws in this department are different from the rest of France with regard to hunting, economic life, local government relationships, and social rights. While on vacation here, you are sure to enjoy the unique history and culture of the area, visiting half-timbered houses and sipping wine in the small villages.
