Black Forest & Alsace Villages
The Black Forest is one of the most picturesque areas of Germany, where you will find scenery to rival even the Alpine regions. The forest is a carpet of tree-lined hills laced with beautiful villages of unique charm, nestling in lush green valleys. Our holiday base is surrounded by the green Hanauerland on the mighty Rhine opposite Strasbourg. The village is flanked by the Black Forest and Vosges Mountains on either side. Nearby, are the Alsace wine villages, set along the 'Route des Vins'. All this and a Crusader favourite hotel makes for a superb short break.
