Alsace … is a unique corner of France. Here you’ll discover a land of storybook hamlets, fairytale castles, rolling vineyards of Alsacian wines, Baroque, Gothic and Romanesque architecture. For centuries, the great empires of Europe confronted one another at this strategic military and cultural crossroads. As part of Germany from 1870 to 1918, the area’s unique blend of French and German influences are strongly evident in its customs, cuisine, wines, architecture and language.
