Alsace has the makings of a great journey
Alsace can be discovered without a car, thanks to transport that is more economical in CO2 emissions and therefore less polluting for the environment.
Other modes of transport than the car are possible in Alsace and you can discover the main tourist sites of Alsace with the help of bus or train shuttles. These itineraries allow tourists to prepare their stay(s) and non-motorized outing(s) in Alsace.
