Search the best hotels in Alsace
France and Germany are separated by the Rhine in some parts of Alsace, and this land has changed hands numerous times giving it a distinct regional feel. It’s French, but with definite German influences, which can be seen in the architecture of the historic cities and castles and châteaux which sprout up here and there. There are as many reasons to visit the region as there are best places to stay in Alsace. And our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Alsace range from stone farmhouses on the famous Alsacian Vineyard Route, to Strasbourg city break hotels to remote châteaux and farmhouses with spectacular views.
As well as the distinctive wines, the majority of them white, the pretty, and often historic towns and hamlets, and the epic Rhine on one side and the Vosges mountains on the other side, Alsace is also known for having some of Europe’s most beautiful cathedrals and churches.
If you’re here for the food - which is another of Alsace’s great prides, it’s distinctly Gallic, but with some German influences - then you’ll find plenty to sample. This is a great region to explore on a bike, especially if you’re particularly interested in the food and wine of the area. Alsace is the smallest French region, but it has the greatest number of five-star chefs per capita.
Strasbourg is obviously where you'll be based if you're here on European Parliamentary business, but it also boasts a fantastic Christmas market, charming Bavarian style timbered houses and a UNESCO Heritage listed old town.
Our pick of the best places to stay in Alsace range from cheap and cheerful to an adults only luxury retreat, and everything inbetween - there is certainly something for everyone whatever your taste or budget!
