Day 1: Check-in
Boarding from 14:00. Before leaving for your river cruise aboard a houseboat, visit Boofzheim, a typical Alsatian village. You can walk in the streets of this charming town, with its typical wood houses dating back to XVIII century, up to the central square with the Roman Catholic Lutheran Church and its ancient bell tower.
Navigation in the direction of Plobsheim, another small town where you can stop to have a walk ashore. Once you are in the city center, you can visit the magnificent chapel of Notre-Dame du Chêne, built in 1454. If you are into golf, in Plobsheim there is a golf club, too.
Today you reach Obenheim, a typical village in Alsace that will enchant you with its wood houses and excellent restaurants.
Leaving Obenheim behind, the next stop will be Strasbourg, one of the most beautiful cities in France. The European Parliament is here, and its magnificent building can be seen even from the river. Strasbourg is also famous for its local specialties, the foie gras, Alsace wines, chocolates and brandy.
In Strasbourg there are many things worth seeing, for this reason we suggest you to stop another day to enjoy the city at best. Strasbourg's architecture will enchant you, foremost the magnificent Cathédrale de Nôtre Dame, a building dating back to 1190 that during the centuries has changed many times. In the city center you can also visit several museums, enjoy wine and local specialties tasting.
Once you left Strasbourg, you can stop at Hochfelden, a small village famous for its independent family brewery. Since 1640, Haag family has run Meteor brewery for eight generations and now offers guided tours inside its museum. No doubt, it's worth a visit!
The last must-see stop of this houseboat cruise is Saverne, a small town with its typical sloping roofs and the flower pot full of geraniums.
