ALSACE LEISURE

Alsace is the Germanic region of France. It is a region lying on the west bank of the river Rhine, between the Rhine and the Vosges mountains. In terms of heritage and culture, with its villages of brightly-painted steep-roofed half-timbered houses, Alsace is famous for its wine and cuisine, its choucroute and several other local specialities such as Alsace Flammekueche, a traditional dish that is not unlike a pizza without tomatoes, but covered with cheese, cream, mushrooms and local ham. Another local speciality is Alsatian gingerbread, known as Pain d’Epices.
