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. Strasbourg is one of the nine largest cities in France with nearly half a million inhabitants in the metropolitan area crossing the river to the German city of Kehl, on the eastern bank of the Rhine River.
Take a break from the city and head to La Volerie des Aigles and Foret de la Robertsau. Change things up with these side-trips from Strasbourg: Station de Ski Le Champ du Feu (in Belmont), Blienschwiller (Domaine Hubert METZ & Domaine Hubert Meyer) and Kintzheim (La Montagne des Singes & Cigoland - Parc des Cigognes et Attractions). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through La Petite France, step into the grandiose world of Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, examine the collection at Palais de Rohan, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg.

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.
