The Alsace region in France has some of the most beautiful fairy-tale castles of the whole country. A trip to Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle with its stunning views over the Alsatian plain is a must-do on every tourists itinerary, as is a visit to the Castle of Hohlandsbourg, the largest fortified castle in the whole region. Numerous events are staged here throughout the year, such as re-enactments of battles by knights in full shining armour and medieval markets towards Christmas time.

Mulhouse’s history lies within its industrial background. Some of its monuments and official municipal buildings bear witness to the riches that flowed into the state coffers in the past. There are Roman baths and various industrial museums dedicated to things as diverse as textiles, cars and trains.

However, the Alsace is most famous for its picturesque villages, where time seems to stand still and only the fruity white wines of the region seem to age. Riquewihr is a tourist trap with its cobbled streets, hidden court yards, pretty half-timbered houses and floral displays, but Kaysersberg, a former imperial town, is less quaint and more imposing in its medieval pomp and circumstance. The town is the birth place of none other than Albert Schweitzer.

The village of La Petite-Pierre on the other hand is a hiker’s paradise. It is beautifully situated in the Northern Vosges Regional Nature Park and offers some 350 km of secure, marked-out trails for hiking, walking, biking and horse-riding.
