Beautiful Alsace.

11 comments


The Alsace turned out to be beyond our expectations……so many people had recommended this area of France.The German influence was very evident there.
So many beautiful villages along the wine route to see, and, of course,Strasbourg,such an interesting city.

Below are a few photos showing our trip.It was interesting to see how the grasses were used in the floral arrangements.Many ideas whirling aound in my head for next year!!
Hope you enjoy!


The stork nests were huge and sadly empty…..we were too late to see them.
The Buggati factory was in the village near to us…..on one particular day there was the Annual procession of cars from many years,the photo next shows the oldest Bugatti car……built in 1900.


The next three photos are of Strasbourg cathedral in the mist……The River Rhine and the European rights building taken from the boat.

That's lovely Julia. I've never been to the Alsace, or indeed to Germany, but it does look very German to me. Glad you've enjoyed it!

Hi Julia ..
Good to know your trip was so wonderful ...
great pics ... lots of cobbles and cakes ! ;o)

I love all the colourful houses and the huge window boxes Julia . Did you go in that cake shop then ! They all looked quite tasty ! I expect being Germany, it was very expensive ! I'm pleased you enjoyed it.

Thank you girls......the cakes were irresistible.....couldn't do them too often.....The Alsace..has changed ownership a few times but is part of France now...
