The region of Alsace, France, has been pushed back and forth between Germany and France for centuries, resulting in a melting pot of French and German architecture, cuisine and even language. Stay in one of our Alsace hostels and experience the delight of walking through villages straight out of a Brothers Grimm fairytale. Admire the quaint streets, lined with timbered houses, shuttered windows, artistic wooden carvings, geranium-filled flower boxes and cheerful paintwork. Drift along the Ill River in pretty Strasbourg, and then stand before the gleaming European Parliament Building. Wander through rose gardens and past the impressive red sandstone facade of Rohan Castle in Saverne. Admire hundreds of spectacular cars at the National Car Museum and stroll through an impressive Protestant Church with beautiful stained-glass windows in Mulhouse. Said to be home to the first Christmas tree, Alsace does Christmas markets in style due to its enchanting architecture which adds a sense of authenticity to the festive atmosphere.
