A region situated at the crossroads of
Europe, Alsace is a frontier land both open to the world and attached to its own
traditions. Alsace is renowned for its geranium-filled villages, its medieval
capital of Strasbourg, its tasty "choucroute garni" dishes and its crispy dry
white wines. Nestled between the mighty Rhine and the Vosges mountains,
picturesque Alsace is fiercely French in its social and political attitudes, but
ever so slightly German in its tastes and appetites.
