Medieval towns with cobblestone streets and half-timbered houses, the prettiest outdoor markets and vineyards make the Alsace region a lovely place to visit. Alsace is the smallest region in France, bordering Germany and Switzerland in the east and the Vosges mountain in the west. Due to the shelter of the Vosges Mountains, the Alsace enjoys a semi-continental climate with hot summers, long pleasant warm autumns and cold, snowy winters.
Alsace is authentic and not spoiled by mass tourism yet. A perfect holiday destination for those who like to see typical French villages and the French everyday life. If you stop in one of the exquisite villages along the Alsatian Wine road you will be warmly welcomed by the winegrower himself and he will show you proudly his century old wine cellars. Taste the delicious wines directly from the barrel and stock up with some bottles of the finest Riesling or Gewurztraminer. The Wine Route stretches out from Thann to Marlenheim, enclosed by the Vosges and the river Rhine on both sides. 170 kilometers (105 miles) of peaceful countryside, vineyards and welcoming villages with charming half-timbered houses richly decorated with flowers.
