    :active::active::active::active:Hi all

    Has anyone stayed in the Alsace region and if so can you recommend any good sites? Also roughly how long did the journey take? Any info would be very much appreciated as we are looking to travel there next year for a couple of weeks. We passed through there on a return trip to Italy and we were enamoured with the area, quaint villages, half timbered buildings.

    Looking forward to hearing from anybody.

    Woody. :cheers:

    Some years ago we stayed in Rouffach, on a small municipal camp site. There was an aire just nearby but the site was nice and also cheap. The town has a stork sanctuary.
    We were in the area because I wanted to visit the Bugatti museum in Mulhouse.
    We took several days to get there stopping at the aire in Giffaumont Champaubert on the Lac du Der and also on a campsite along the E512 - can't remember the name but you should find some aires along the way if you look them up on Allthe Aires or on Campingcar_infos.

    They only put beer (if you could call it beer) in tiny bottles. ;)

    Last year we stayed at Neuf Brisach near Colmar. It was a very pretty site next to a fortified town. It was a very reasonable price. We caught the bus into Colmar which is a must place to see. We thought the aire in Colmar near the port looked a bit unsafe but that's just us. There is also a steam train at Neuf-B which is combined with a river trip. A great day out.

    If you don't need full service sites then there are some nice aires/wild camping sites e.g.
    a) Orschwihr - small aire in village with loads of wine producers - clean & quiet
    b) Col de la Schlut - 1139m above sea level - car park near top of mountain
    c) Kayserburg - aire by lovely old town (a bit noisey at night from nearby main road)
    Just take your time - and sample lots of different wines! It's a lovely place.
