Tell Me What You're
Looking for about Alsace


Have you got a Question about Alsace?

Is it even possible to answer every question on this website? : )

I have certainly made it my mission to know everything about this beautiful region.

But I'm sure there are a few things missing haha

Just because there isn't a web page up about what you're looking for doesn't mean I don't know about it.

But if there is a web page here about the subject you're interested in...please read it before asking a question...I would really appreciate it.

Of course some questions might require a lot more work than you realise to answer, so I hope you understand if my schedule doesn't allow for it.

If you are asking me to make decisions for you, you are looking for a travel planner or tour guide : )

So here's your chance...

What are you looking for?

And if you scroll down you'll find everyone else's questions about Alsace and all of my answers too!

If you've got a question or comment about a specific subject like Alsatian food, Geneaology or your upcoming Alsace vacation, you'll find links to dedicated pages for each subject below...

Have You Got a Question about Alsace?

I'm not under any delusions that I'm finished with this website...

Far from it!

So I know that some of you are going to have questions that haven't been answered yet...

So here's your chance...

You can ask your questions here and I'll answer them here.

That way everyone else can benefit from it!
