Au­tumn in Al­sace

Steam Railway (UK) - - Next Issue -

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!
