What to see & do

Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg - The Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg is a medieval castle in the Vosges mountains, located in the commune of Orschwiller in Bas-Rhin. The castle overlooks the Upper Rhine Plain and was used by successive powers in the Middle Ages until the Thirty Years' War. The castle currently serves as a major tourist site in Alsace, officially designated as a national historic site by the French Ministry of Culture in 1993. 

Strasbourg Cathedral - Strasbourg Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg or Strasbourg Minster, is a Roman Catholic cathedral located in Strasbourg. Despite parts of the cathedral still being Romanesque in architecture, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of late Gothic architecture. At the height of 142 m (466 ft), it was the tallest cathedral in the world from 1647 to 1874. 

Cité de l'Automobile - Cité de l'Automobile, Musée national de l’automobile, is a museum built around the Schlumpf Collection of classic automobiles. The automobile museum is located in Mulhouse and houses the largest collection of Bugatti motor vehicles in the world. 

Musée alsacien - The Alsatian Museum in Strasbourg is dedicated to all aspects of (although mostly rural) daily life in Alsace's pre-industrial and early industrial periods. The museum also features a collection of artefacts documenting the everyday life of Alsatian Jews. Musée alsacien contains over 5000 exhibits, the most notable of which is the reconstruction of the interiors of several traditional houses. 

 

How to get around within Alsace

Alsace is filled with bike trails, but cars may really be the best way to go if you want to explore all the little villages all over the region. Car hire companies can be found in airports or at the railway stations in Mulhouse and Strasbourg. Alsace is also well served by bus, tram, and train. The TER (express regional train service) is especially extensive, with a very dense rail network and a total of 161 railway stations served. If you've been cycling (or are going to), bikes can be admitted on the trains for free; the exception is between Strasbourg and Basel during peak hours. The French rail company, SNCF, provides coach connections between the towns and villages.
