Short Trip report with picture slide - Route du Vin

Firstly I would like to thank Alsacienne and others who contributed to my questions. Your inputs were much greatly appreciated.

AWESOME is how I describe this charming region. Picture tells thousand words, so I put together a slide of pictures which I took during our short visit on Sept 8 - 10. We hired a car from CDD in Paris, and drove to Alsace region. We stayed one night in Strasbourg and 1 night in between Riquewihr and Colmar. The order of our visits as below:

• Strasbourg

Obernai

• Mt St. Odile

Ribeauville

• Riquewihr

• Colmar

• Esguisheim

Thanks

Albi

Thank you, Albi. I will share your pictures with my husband. It looks like a wonderul trip.

Did you drive or go on a bus tour? We are interested, as we would like to take that trip someday ourselves.

Thank all for you for watching my picture slide.

Mrs. JAS, please visit this beautiful region, you will not disappoint.

There were 6 of us, so renting a car was very economical and one couple is Parisian, that made the drive easier, especially with parallel parking in a very tiny tiny parking space. From Paris, auto route is the fastest but toll free was approximately 36 euro each way + gasoline + rental fee. You can compare that with TGV 90 days in advance purchase from Paris to Strasbourg or Colmar, see which way is better. Then rent a car there to tour Route du Vin. That was what I originally planned, but my friends wanted to also visit the region, so it worked out well for us.

Alsacienne,

This region is on my come back list. Perhaps it is sooner than I anticipated because I praised it so much with my friends and now they all want to go to France and of course I will tag along even though it will be our sixth trip to France.
