Autumn in Alsace
Thursday 11th October to Thursday 18th October 2018
Discover the enchanting region of Alsace by steam train on this rich tour of autumn splendour in eastern France.
Based in the magnificent city of Colmar you’ll explore the region on privately chartered standard gauge steam trains on all of the preserved railways in Alsace and a forest railway in nearby Lorraine. There are also excursions into nearby southern Germany to enjoy and a visit to an impressive steam railway in the Black Forest. One of many tour highlights is a scenic lunch cruise aboard a classic motor vessel on the River Rhine in Basel, Switzerland. There’s also a visit to the Alsatian vineyard town of Riquewihr and the city of Mulhouse, with the French National Railway Museum. Thanks to the short travel distances from Colmar to all the featured attractions this is a truly relaxed tour, and the perfect opportunity to see France in a completely new way!
