Do you need more information for your trip to Alsace?

Airport: 

-Aéroport de Strasbourg

-There is no international airport in Strasbourg - you will most likely land in Paris and take a connecting flight. 

Train: 

-You can also take the train from Paris, this typically takes around 2 hours. You can look for tickets on the SNCF, Trainline, Ouigo or Omio. 

How to get around the region: 

-Most of the beauty of Alsace is found in the small towns. It's important to note that in order to do this RENTING A CAR is the best way to get around. There are no train stations in the small towns. The only train stations can be found in Strasbourg and Colmar. 

-For my most recent road trips we have been using rentalcars.com and have been loving it - we have found the best deals on here! (This is an affiliate link) 

-Another popular way is bike rental since you will be riding through the vineyards to get from town to town. 

Getting to/from the airport: 

-There is a shuttle that will take you from the Strasbourg airport directly into the city centre within 8 minutes. 

-You can buy tickets at the train station or at the airport at the ticket machines. 

Want help planning your trip to Alsace? 

I consider France to be my area of expertise. I've lived here for 2 years and have traveled around many times to many regions! I would love to help you with your trip planning - let's make the most out of your trip! 

How can we make your trip EVEN BETTER? 

Curated recs are great if:

you know where you want to go, but don’t have the time or energy to research where to eat, what to do, or where to stay!

Custom itinerary is great if: 

you know where you want to go but cannot commit the time to planning and researching the logistical details. You can choose whether you want an in-depth itinerary or a trip outline!

Consultation calls are great if:

you want to chat face-to-face with someone who has lived in Europe for 4 years and can give you advice, tips, or even feedback on your itinerary. We can talk about everything and anything you need help with!
