Alsace: line up two by two !

Alsace, located on the banks of the Rhine on France's border with Switzerland and Germany, is the ideal region for school field trips and educational visits.

Idées de visites Alsace - scolaires

Its geographical location and European focus make Alsace a worthy representative of the coming together of the various European nations. An educational visit to Strasbourg is unmissable! The capital of Alsace is home to the Council of Europe, the European Parliament, and the European Court of Human Rights.

Alsace has an extremely rich historic and cultural heritage: it has the largest concentration of fortified castles of any region in Europe, including those in Haut-Koenigsbourg, 

Hohlandsbourg and Fleckenstein. Sites of remembrance also play an important part: the Alsace-Moselle memorial, the Hartmannswillerkopf, the Struthof Concentration Camp, the Linge....

 

Haut-Koenigsbourg Alsace

A rich industrial heritage with remarkable architecture has also left its mark on Alsace's landscapes. For such a small region, Alsace also has a considerable amount of expertise: the automobile industry (the famous Bugatti cars are from Alsace), textile mills, silver mines and other farms open to visitors.

After Paris, Mulhouse, Europe's technical museum capital, is the second most visited town in France for its museums. These include the Cité du Train train museum, as well as the largest collection of automobiles in the world at the Cité de l’Automobile.

Strasbourg Alsace

The Alsace Ecomuseum in Ungersheim, the largest open-air museum in France, gives you the opportunity to discover Alsace's traditional way of life. Near Strasbourg, the Vaisseau, the little sister of the Cité des Sciences at La Villette in Paris, is a science and technology discovery centre with numerous exhibitions and workshops designed for all ages.

After all these cultural visits, take advantage of Alsace's exceptional natural setting and the many fun or sports activities it offers! Whether on land with a visit to Monkey Mountain in Kintzheim with its 500 free roaming Barbary apes, on the water with white water sports such as kayaking and rafting or in the air in Alsace's various adventures parks, there's plenty of opportunity to stretch your legs!

For its size, France's smallest region is the perfect choice for a multi-site or residential trip. It is just waiting to welcome you and your class to this wonderful setting for a fun and educational trip!
