Destination of the Month - Strasbourg and Alsace

(Click here to see previous Destinations of the Month)

Located close to both Germany & Switzerland, the French region of Alsace has a wealth of resources to seduce diverse and demanding audiences.

With its parks, museums & castles, stunning scenery and picturesque towns and villages as well as the numerous leisure activities available, Alsace is the ideal place for either a relaxing or more adventurous group holiday.

Visit a fortified castle in the foothills of the Vosges mountains, the bunkers of the Maginot Line or the fortifications of Vauban which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as is Strasbourg and its Grande Ile.

Discover Alsace's famous Wine Route crosses the age-old vineyards between the Rhine plain and the Ballons des Vosges for more than 170 km. Picturesque flowery villages are strung out along Alsace's Wine Route as well as small well-known wine-making towns that offer breath-taking views illustrating the richness and diversity of Alsace's terroirs.

Alsace is a year round destination and even during the winter months the magic continues with stunning Christmas Markets. Marvel at the great Christmas tree of Strasbourg, the tallest in Europe, or the quaintly picturesque towns of Obernai, Mulhouse or Colmar which is known for its beguiling festive charm!  Enjoy the ambiance of the Old Town of Colmar which like many other places, is  illuminated and decorated like a fairy tale.

With the German Black Forest region being so close why not add an excursion here to your itinerary.

As the setting of countless Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales, the Black Forest happily plays up to its image as a land of cuckoo clocks, cherry gâteaux, outlandish traditional garb, hefty half-timbered farmhouses and hill upon hill of dark evergreen forest.

Why not take what could be your last chance to combine a visit to this region with a half day visit to the Strasbourg European Parliament during a plenary (voting) session, when as a UK resident and with the sponsorship of an MEP, you can obtain a substantial financial subsidy towards your group holiday. Ask for more details – specific departure dates apply.
