1. Strasbourg: Alsace Traditional Villages Day Trip
The first stop after leaving Strasbourg is the city of Molsheim, famous as the home of Bugatti, among other things. You’ll explore the fortified old town of this ancient episcopal city, before going on to Rosheim, a village famous for its Romanesque church and old houses. After a visit to the village of Boersch and its famous 3 gates, head to Mont Sainte Odile and take in an exceptional panoramic view of the entire Alsace Plain. Your lunch break will be in Alsace’s second most visited city after Strasbourg: the cheerful city of Obernai. Take some time to explore this dynamic city and check out the local shops before setting off for the famous Château de Haut-Koenigsbourg in the early afternoon. Pass through many small towns and villages, all a delight to behold, before visiting the ancient castle fort built in the 12th century and thoroughly remodeled in the 15th century. It was a German imperial symbol during the reign of Wilhelm II. Head back to Strasbourg at the end of the afternoon, after a thrilling day spent discovering the very heart of Alsace.
