Read Reviews  

Framed by the pine trees of the Black Forest and the blue-tinted Vosges mountains, this culturally unique region has a distinctly cosmopolitan feel and offers superb cruising to suit all tastes. See timber-framed houses with vibrant flower boxes, storks nests on chimney tops, and magnificent cathedrals. For the fine diner, there are more Michelin starred restaurants in Alsace than anywhere else in France. For fitness buffs, there is swimming, hiking, and cycling to be done. Nature lovers will thoroughly enjoy Saarland, Germany. Descend France’s most spectacular boat lift at St Louis-Arzviller, rising (or lowering) 45m in just 20 minutes. Pass through Strasbourg, home to the European Parliament.
