You could say I've been writing this guide to Alsace for the last 14+ years.
That's when I started this little 300+ page website...
If you think the website is helpful and useful for planning your trip to Alsace, you will LOVE Strasbourg and the Northern Back Roads of Alsace!
I want you to
experience the real Alsace, not just the touristy parts with massive hordes of tour bus groups.
But finding the real Alsace
requires a lot of research unless...
Someone else does it
for you...ahem...like me! : )
I'm just trying to find some information about Alsace - most books on France have about 2 pages or maybe 8.
This guide has TONS of information about food, places to go, getting around - it's extremely enticing and also easy to read.
And really, it isn't just about north of Strasbourg, though there's a lot of great info about places you would absolutely never know about otherwise, unless you had a WWII history buff in the family. And even then...

Thank you again - I am delighted with the wealth of information your guide to Alsace contains.
What a magnificent set of resources for both the planning and the holiday itself.
We intend coming to Strasbourg around 5th of September for at least a fortnight before heading south to chase the warmth. We live in the tropical north of Australia and find the cold difficult to deal with.
Thank you again so much for such a generous presentation.

Hi Suzele! I bought and am now reading your guidebook. Even though I am only 1/3 of the way there, I already love it!
