Baroque city Ettenheim / Altdorf
(about 3 minutes)
The old town with its 13,000 inhabitants is one of the best-preserved baroque places in Germany. It's like taking a little time travel to go for a walk and stroll within its walls. In addition there are beautiful cafés in many picturesque squares and streets where you can enjoy ice cream and the sight of beautiful buildings.

Undisputably the Hochkönigsburg is one of the most impressive castles in Europe. It is beautifully situated on a hilltop near the Alsatian town of Selestat, on the edge of the Vosges. You can visit its inside and outside throughout the whole year and enjoy its magnificent view of the Rhine Valley.
Directly in the neighborhood there is the so-called monkey forest and in summer a bird of prey show. These three attractions alone are worth a day in the region!
(about 25 minutes)
"The most beautiful tower of Christendom", among other things, is gladly attributed to the truly imposing tower of the Freiburg Minster. And this is not the only breathtaking attraction. The whole city is an eye-catcher and definitely worth a day, especially if you also want to shop a bit.

Strasbourg, one of the oldest cities on the Upper Rhine and one of the centers of the region in Roman times, is an absolute must for anyone who wants to explore my home region. Its city center has been an Unesco World Heritage Site since the 1980s.
Hardly no one knows that the Strasbourg Cathedral in the 19th century was the tallest building in the world for several years and is still the tallest sandstone-built sacral structure. You should not miss this view and the many other beautiful treasures Strasbourg has to offer.
