Camping in Alsace

Historically speaking, Alsace was part of the German-speaking area of central Europe and to this day a large proportion of the population, of all generations, speaks or understands Alsacian, a dialectal form of German closely resembling that spoken in Switzerland. Alsace has passed back and forth between Germany and France several times; consequently, it is a region that was not part of France at the time of the makings of the modern-day nation, and has held on to a number of institutional differences, particularly concerning religious affairs. For example, Good Friday is a public holiday in Alsace, but not in the rest of France.

In architectural terms, Alsace is definitely Germanic. Its capital, Strasbourg, is a busy city with a wide industrial girdle and an exquisite medieval centre, now the home of the European Parliament. Plenty of picturesque towns including Obernai, Riquewihr and Ribeauville can also be found along the 'Route des Vins' tourist route.
