Its location in the triangle formed by the three cities of Molsheim, Strasbourg and Saverne, offers Scharrachbergheim an excellent position to enjoy all the charms of Alsace.

 

The village itself, perched on one of these hills that mark the beginning of the Vosges, is not without attraction with its timbered houses, two churches and a small castle. Surrounded by vineyards, it justifies entirely the name of this small region : the Vineyard Gate. One can indeed take it as a starting point of the famous Alsatian wine road that can be followed south along the Vosges.

 

Twenty miles away one can discover Strasbourg. Is there any need to present the charm of the European capital where visitors will be captivated by the cathedral, striking example of the Gothic period, the medieval streets, the old quarter of Petite France or the European Parliament.

 

Student town, lively and animated, Strasbourg will also offer excellent evenings, between traditional or gourmet restaurants, cinemas, bars and nightclubs.

Less known, the town of Saverne nevertheless deserves some attention. Indeed, it retains many traces of its long history, the city having been first Gallic, then a Roman camp. Remains of Roman wall, medieval wall, Romanesque church, cloister, old houses ... Saverne attracts as much by its historical mark than its natural setting. At the bottom of the Vosges forest, numerous castles keep watching over it and wait to be visited !

Cars’ enthusiasts have already heard of the town of Molsheim where is still present the historical head of Bugatti, the legendary make. But Molsheim is also many religious buildings perfectly preserved, exceptional Renaissance building, and traces of fortifications, including a tower still standing. And right next to Molsheim one finds Obernai, Alsace's second most visited city after Strasbourg, particularly for its beautiful timbered houses.

Lovers of nature will not be left out, since the area offers stunning scenery. Hiking, tree climbing, skiing or sledding in the winter ... the Vosges will occupy most sportsmen ! For more peaceful walks, the meadows of the Ried, a nature reserve at the south of Strasbourg, will provide a peaceful setting with their forests, their sources, their numerous rivers, while golf enthusiasts can make a few courses in this pleasant environment.

If Alsace is very nice in summer, it’s in winter that its atmosphere is the more unique, entirely centered around Christmas. Strolling through the streets under the illuminated facades of the decorated houses, getting lost in a Christmas market stalls in the middle of artisans, drink a delicious mulled wine in the square of a small village or in front of the imposing cathedral of Strasbourg, taste Bredele, these little Christmas cookies with spicy scents, discover a tradition centuries old and still alive... This is some of the little joys that await the visitor at the end of the year!

Finally, for the more curious, it will take only a few kilometers by car to cross the Rhine and visit our German neighbors. Baden-Wurtemberg and the Black Forest, Vosges’ twin sister, are lined with bike paths on which it will be good to ride. And the city of Baden-Baden promises wonderful moments of well-being with its exceptional thermal baths, and cultural moments, especially with its museum of contemporary art.

 

The children will certainly be pleased to discover, near the border, Europa Park, one of the largest amusement parks in Europe.

One could describe for a long time the charms of Alsace (the Haut-Koenigsbourg, Mont Sainte-Odile, the old town of Colmar, the medieval village of Kaysersberg, etc..). The only way to find out more : come in and realize for yourself the attractions of a warm and welcoming area, modern and rooted in its traditions, unique. And to do so what better pied-a-terre than La Maison de Georges ?
