“With its unique blend of French and German culture, Alsace will rivet you. Nestled between the blue skyline of the Vosges mountains and the Rhine River, the surrounding breathtaking scenery provides an idyllic playground for riders. Making friends with the locals along the way is what will allow you to discover unforgettable experiences.”
— Jerome Boré, Experience Designer
Discover Fairytale Villages & the Route des Vins
Alsatians are proud of their unique culture. Setting aside the age-old question of “ownership,” Alsace is more than just land sandwiched between Germany and France—it's the best of both worlds. A result of a unique 2,000-year culture blend experiment, combined with the catalysts of time and the indomitable character of the Alsatian people. Experience all it has to offer on a private, tailor-made journey.
Discover the possibilities:
Dine on Alsatian specialties
For foodies and wine connoisseurs, Alsace will captivate you. Though heavily influenced by its neighbouring gastronomic strongholds, the cuisine remarkably remains its own...and then raises the bar. The result? Savour choucroute au poisson—sauerkraut with fish in cream sauce, a hearty dish and distinctly Alsatian. Explore the country’s unique wines—again, influenced by wine empires France and Germany—but with its own distinctive tastes and style.
Cycle the Route des Vins
With a huge network of safe cycling paths crammed with unbelievable scenery and catering to all ages and expertise, Alsace offers some of France's finest biking. Cycle past medieval castles, through picturesque villages and visit its many vineyards. Discover German architecture in France and head into the hills of Germany for a prestigious wine sampling. Visit cosmopolitan Strasbourg, one of the best cycling cities in Europe. Colmar will attract you with its surrounding plains of Guemar or detour to Kayserburg with its castles and half-timbered houses.
Experience Alsatian Culture
Immerse yourself in a riveting land, not quite German, not quite French, but one that sets itself apart. A beautiful collection of forests, vineyards, landscapes and villages, Alsace lures with colourful costumes and dancing, expressed through its festivals. Listen to the elderly gossip in Alsatian while children chatter in French. Explore distinctive architecture, from gothic to medieval to Romanesque. Savour unique cuisine and relish exquisite white wines. Marked by tumultuous history, Alsace proudly flourishes.
Tackle hillside vineyards by e-bike
Set off through cosmopolitan Strasbourg and follow quiet bike paths to Dachstein. Pass ancient churches and wind your way through hillside vineyards. Pedal through enchanting orchards and explore the hidden nooks and crannies of picturesque Colmar. Explore the Unterlinden Museum, a former Dominican convent and home to the famed Issenheim Altarpiece. Or, discover the pretty villages of Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr and Kaysersberg. Learn the sophisticated wood-making techniques of the Spindler family legacy, and sip the unique wines of Heiligenstein.
