Refining Alsace itinerary

Jump to last reply

We'll be spending a week in Alsace in early September. We arrive in Paris on September 2, are overnighting to help with jet lag, and the next morning will take the TGV to Strasbourg, where we'll arrive roughly midday on Thursday, Sept 3. We'll pick up our car on Monday, Sept 7, and head for Ribeauville, where we're staying in a lovely b&b. We return to Paris on Friday, Sept 11, for a couple of weeks.

So here's what I'm wondering. Are we allocating too much time to Strasbourg? We do plan to make a day trip to Baden Baden, weather permitting. We enjoy wandering around, passing an hour in a cafe people watching, and perhaps visiting an art museum and of course the cathedral and La Petite France.

From Ribeauville we'll visit a number of nearby towns and perhaps spend a day in Freiburg.

We are slow travelers and not interested in checking off the top ten sights. We're more about atmosphere and beauty. Like eating well but are not foodies.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help.
