From Strasbourg to Mulhouse
Begin your discovery of Alsace with a tour of its splendid and diverse towns.
Start with Strasbourg. Considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Strasbourg is also deemed a European capital. Its entire city centre is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site and contains the main spots and monuments that have created city's fame. Come visit the wonderful masterpiece of Gothic art that is Strasbourg's Notre Dame Cathedral. Or how about a tour of the Petite France area, the prettiest part of Strasbourg's old town? Saint Thomas' Church is a real treat for architecture enthusiasts. This Protestant church is a beautiful example of Alsatian Gothic art. Take a look at its central piece, the impressive tomb of the Marechal de Saxe which dates from the 18th century.
Next stop, Colmar; one of the oldest towns in the region. Its cultural heritage, which has been incredibly well preserved, will tell you over a thousand years of stories. Take a walk through the old town and admire the many half-timbered or colourful Renaissance-style houses. Next, head to Petite Venise (Little Venice), a small bridge with a beautiful view of the Lauch river, lined with timber-framed houses. If you come between May and September, you will see Colmar moving to the beat of folkloric music played by local groups at Place de l’Ancienne Douane every Tuesday evening.
End your discovery of Alsace with the splendid town of Mulhouse. It has more than 17 listed buildings, such as the former town hall and the Tour du Belvedere, a tower measuring 330 metres. This town has many charms which are revealed through its different districts and unique heritage. An absolute must for families is the zoo and botanical garden. This park, with more than 190 species, including a polar bear, Siberian tiger and blue-eyed lemur, and over 3,000 plants, has received the ""Jardin Remarquable"" (Remarkable Garden) label from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.
During your stay, be sure to take a break in one of the many regional restaurants and delight in some Alsatian specialities. Try the flammekueche, a delicious flambéed tart. Give in to an authentic choucroute or succulent Baeckeoffe, accompanied with a first-rate Alsatian wine. Are you a cheese fanatic? You're sure to love the delicious Munster.
