, one of my favourite places. Strasbourg
where the European Parliament sits. Mulhouse
where there is the most wonderful car museum with a marvellous section filled with beautiful veteran cars, highly polished so you can see your face in the paintwork. Sigh! They're magnificent!
The "Route des Vins" which takes you along the route through the wine country. Alsace has some of the very best and world-renowned white wines (Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Sylvaner, Pinot, Crémant…).
It is also home to the bretzel (pretzel) of which I'm very fond. Colmar
with its canals and Bartoldi museum (he's the sculptor who made the Statue of Liberty).
So many picturesque little villages.
Many storks build their nests all around Alsace and it's a sight to see them in flight over your head.
Alsace is a land of dreams.
