Alsace, land of fortified castles

Like stone sentinels perched along the crest of the Vosges mountains, dozens of castles watch over the plain from the north to the south of Alsace.
These marvels of medieval defensive architecture can be seen in the distance, their imposing silhouettes silhouetted against the peaks.
They carry with them the memory of centuries of history and have seen generations of men and women come and go.
Nestling in the heart of the Vosges forest, the mystery they exude has inspired tales and legends that blend reality and fantasy.
An exceptional Alsatian heritage, with the highest density of castles in Europe, a must-see.

Alsatian beer

Alsace's brewing tradition is well established.

The birthplace of great breweries, it is now enjoying a renaissance thanks to the dozens of small-scale micro-breweries that have sprung up in recent years. Push open their doors to discover how they are made, take part in a brewing workshop or enjoy a tasting session in a taproom.

Blonde, brown, amber or white; lager, lager, IPA, Indian Pale Ale, stout; each brewer has his own recipe, and Alsace beer comes in a thousand varieties.

*Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health. Drink in moderation.

Cheers!

Caught up in the energy of spring, we set off along the cycle paths and footpaths to make the most of the new-found fine weather.
