COLMAR, THE ALSACE &
RHINE VALLEY RIVER CRUISE
Combine a spectacular driving tour of the wonderful Alsace Region with a Romantic Rhine Valley Cruise on board CroisiEurope's river cruise ship, MS La Boheme from Strasbourg.
Colmar is is nestled among vineyards and its traditional houses, canals, floral displays, amazing cuisine and famous beers and wines, make Colmar an outstanding microcosm of Alsace. Colmar, the capital of the Alsacian wines, situated near Germany and Switzerland between the Vosges and the Rhine, Strasbourg and Mulhouse, offers visitors an exciting glimpse of a 1000 years of European history.
The Alsace is the Germanic region of France. It is a region lying on the west bank of the river Rhine, between the Rhine and the Vosges mountains. To the north and east it shares a border with Germany; to the south with German-speaking Switzerland and to the west with Lorraine and Franche Comté. Here, the candy-coloured towns and villages look as though they've popped up from a children's bedtime story. The gently rolling countryside, lined with vines is nothing short of idyllic and everywhere locals swear by centuries-old traditions.
Cité de l'Automobile was created by the famous Schlumpf brothers who collected the most beautiful and fastest vehicles. Go and admire the marvellous Bugatti Royale, the Rolls Royces and the Ferraris. Discover the cars that made history and experience the collection in an entertaining and interactive surrounding.
The River Rhine is truly one of Europe’s greatest international waterways. Enshrined in the culture and literature of the six countries through which it passes, no other river in the world has so many old and famous cities on its banks. From the comfort of your first-class floating hotel, you will be transported through landscapes that change constantly from the gentle and placid to the most sheer and dramatic. There’s nothing quite like the anticipation of gliding up to the promenade of a river port; where you can explore tiny cobbled streets and alleyways leading past quirkily crooked, half-timbered houses to quiet, intimate squares. A cruise on the River Rhine will be a memory to treasure for always.
