Please help with Alsace iternerary

Jump to last reply

My friend and I are trying to plan a trip to the Alsace region of France the first week of October. Our thought is to arrive at CDG and train from there to Strasbourg on our arrival day, spend 2-3 nights in Strasbourg, then train to Colmar 4-5 nights. We would like to rent a car in Colmar to do some day trips from there. We would train back to Paris for the last night before the flight home.

So my questions are:

1. Am I right that we should purchase the ticket to Strasbourg early to save money? If so, what website do I use.
2. What amount of time do you recommend for the 2 cities? Not sure if 4 days is too much in Colmar.
3. My friend would rather not go into Paris for our last night. What hotel recommendations can you give for one at the airport?
4. I assume renting a car in Colmar will not be a problem? I can drive a straight drive if necessary.

Hotel recommendations you may have for these two cities would be greatly appreciated.

Logistics for this trip are confusing me for some reason. Thanks so much for your help.

Cathy
