When to Go

Alsace is blessed with four distinct seasons and one of the lowest rainfalls in all of France—so anytime at all is the right time to visit. Snow in winter adds magic to the Christmas markets; spring brings forth the scent of burgeoning grape flowers as the world turns green with life; summer can be warm, drawing crowds; autumn is nature's symphony of color—the leaves of tree and vine become a riot of golden yellows and oranges, as the bountiful grapes are harvested.
