Alsace, Franconia, or Mosel?

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone,

I am working on my itinerary for my upcoming trip to Western/Central Europe.

I would like to see some quaint half-timbered buildings, and other architectural gems. We want to have a balance between cities and towns/villages in our itinerary, and we would be concerned that we would be trying to fit in too much if we tried to do all of the options. Less is more as they say.

We have approximately 8 extra days in our planning to devote to the following regions below. We will be coming from a week in Paris, and ultimately plan to work our way down towards the Berchtesgaden area in southern Bavaria.

We have narrowed down our choices to the Alsace region around Colmar, the Franconia region in Germany, (Bamberg & Rothenburg specifically), or the Mosel region around in and around Cochem.

While it ultimately comes down to a personal preference, which region would you choose and why? I would love to hear your answers and experiences about these regions.
