Its setting in eastern France on the border of Germany, sitting on the banks of the Rhine, the world’s most-travelled river, makes Strasbourg a nucleus of communication, historically from its medieval past, to today, with its status as the capital of the Alsace region. The city is a cosmopolitan centre for university students and curious tourists; and full of fantastic hidden corners, with a spectacular Gothic cathedral and a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, as well as Europe’s oldest Christmas market and the picturesque Petite France quarter with its canals and typical taverns. Its historic feel contrasts beautifully with its modern districts that show the city’s contemporary side, making Strasbourg a unique destination that has something to please everybody.

As if the region of Alsace didn’t already have enough with its beautiful landscapes and medieval villages, it also grows some of the best white grapes in the industry. Its famous wine route stretches over 75 miles from Thann to Marlenheim, and is unmatched by any other. Visitors can discover the wine-making villages of Dambach-la-Ville, Ribeauvillé, Kaysersberg, Hunawihr and Colmar, whose streets are packed with family bodegas where an evening of tasting goes deliciously with dishes of the distinctive local cuisine. All through the year, festivals in honour of the god Bacchus are held along the route. Cheers!
