Strasbourg / Vosges Mountains / Alsace

Passing the Europe Bridge you get to Strasbourg, the City of Europe. Strasbourg has many faces. Historical monuments like the world famous cathedral and old framework houses are standing next to modern buildings like the residence of the European Parliament. In the narrow streets restaurants in profusely decorated framework houses invite the visitor to stay there. Those who want to enjoy Strasbourg from the water, go on board of a boat on the Ill river. A visit to the Hochkönigsburg, located between Strasbourg and Colmar, is always worth while as well as a walk through the picturesque city of Colmar. The Odilienberg is the most popular place of pilgrimage in Alsace. In clear weather the 763 metres high mountain-ridge offers a wonderful view over the complete Rhine plain from.
