INFORMATION ABOUT THE REGION
Alsace lies between the Vosges mountains and the Rhine. This region of Germanic tradition offers a multitude of activities that will entertain all types of travellers: sports holidays, relaxation, with family or friends... Some will want to take advantage of the winter periods on the ski slopes or with snowshoes.
Many marked trails offer beautiful walks all year round. During these walks, you may come across relics dating from the First World War. All you have to do is put on your walking shoes!
FIRST CYCLING DESTINATION IN FRANCE!
Cycling enthusiasts will find nearly 2,500 km of cycle routes. There is something for everyone, including the Véloroute du Vignoble, which links around a hundred wine-producing towns and explores around fifty Alsace Grand Cru terroirs.
Still in a peaceful spirit, the canal cycle routes allow you to discover the landscape along the water. Finally, the more sporty can try the Vosges valleys cycle routes, which offer steeper climbs, so you can get your adrenaline flowing!
As far as the weather is concerned, in winter it is (relatively) cold and snowy, whereas in summer it is much warmer.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, here are some Alsatian specialities: pretzels, cervelas salad, the delicious local foie gras and of course, sauerkraut.
