Alsace - Getting There

Travel by air to Basel-Mulhouse Euroairport or Strasbourg-Entzheim Aeroport is quick and convenient. Hassle free car-hire facilities at both will enable you to complete the remainder of the journey to your chosen holiday site within an hour or so.
Frequent ferry sailings from south coast ports or the Channel Tunnel land you close to the autoroutes. From any of these allow 8-10 hours driving time dependent on the time of day and season. People living in central and the north of England may wish to take advantage of the overnight P&O ferry from Hull to Rotterdam or Zeebrugge and those residents around the Borders and Scotland have the choice of the Newcastle- Ijmuiden (Amsterdam) ferry crossing. Rotterdam and Ijmuiden are close to routes through Germany but Zeebrugge is better placed to continue via Brussels and Luxembourg. When driving in France pleased be advised that France has recently introduced a law to impose on the spot fines for non-use of indicators.
Some may choose to make the whole journey by train. These days’ journey times have been considerably reduced and are made in a high standard of comfort especially on the Continent.
The locals love to cycle, and so once there, join them. If you’ve not taken one with you, bike hire is plentiful.
