Is this trip UN-REASONABLE?


Recommended Posts

Have you considered getting the TGV from Paris to Strasbourg, then picking up a car there? The TGV only takes a couple of hours (rather than 6) and you'll save on car hire/ petrol etc.

As for eating, I haven't been to Strasbourg, but I loved Auberge D'Ill at Illhaeusern and La Table Gourmet at Riquewihr; less than an hour away, and in a nice part of Alsace. Riquewihr in particular is a very pretty town worth visiting.

On our first trip through Alsace, we took the train to Strasbourg and picked up a car there. It was pretty seamless.

Had excellent choucroute at Chez Yvonne (10, rue du Sanglier).

Riquewihr is definitely something of a tourist mecca, but we still went back on our most recent trip to get some of the excellent Crémant from the Dopff & Irion cellars there.

True rye and true bourbon wake delight like any great wine...dignify man as possessing a palate that responds to them and ennoble his soul as shimmering with the response.
