Located on the border of Germany and Switzerland, Alsace brings together French culture and values with those from German-speaking countries.
This is the smallest region of France, spanning only 190 km from North to South and 50 km East to West. Located between the Rhine River and Vosges mountains, the area nevertheless boasts diverse landscapes, from mountains and forests to vineyards, flooded fields and the vast Rhine Valley.
Alsatian vineyards and wines are among the best in the world. Typical grape varieties used in regional wines include Gewurtztraminer, Sylvaner and Riesling; these produce white wines that are truly distinctive and full of character. All bottles of Alsatian wines share a slim, long shape, subtly pointing to the proud cultural particularities of the region and its winemaking traditions.
In the winter months, the region comes alive as Strasbourg, Colmar and other cities and towns host some of France’s best Christmas markets: cheerful affairs that feature rustic wooden booths, hot wine, sausages, and traditional toys and gifts.
