Things to do on a Camping Holiday in Alsace
Our previous blog post gave an insight into the beauty and uniqueness of the region of Alsace in Eastern France. This time, we’re going to take it one step further and have a look at a few things you can do to make the most of your stay there.
The capital city of Alsace, you’re really missing a trick if you don’t take the time to pay Strasbourg a visit. The city plays an important role economically and politically, but has plenty to offer for holiday makers too. The historic city centre is a real-life postcard scene, with stunning architecture and charming streets. The Petit France quarter on the banks of the River Ill is our recommended first stop for your trip to Strasbourg.
Aside from the capital city, there are a whole host of locations throughout Alsace which are well worth a day trip away from your campsite. If you’re a family of animal lovers, we recommend visiting Parc des Cigognes just outside of Strasbourg, which is a sanctuary for regional animals of Alsace, or taking a trip to Montagne des Signes; a conservation centre for Barbary Macaque monkeys, or Volerie des Aigles; a sanctuary for birds of prey.
If you’d prefer to steer clear of the animals, Alsace has many wonderful museums to visit, including the French National Railway Museum and Cité de l’Automobile, which is a fantastic car museum.
Lac de Kruth
Summer camping holidays in France are largely about enjoying the great outdoors, and Lac de Kruth offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy this element of your adventure. Lac de Kruth is a large lake where you can enjoy the sunshine as you swim, dive, hire paddle boats and even have a go at fishing. The area around the lake is also a perfect location for hiking for those who prefer to keep dry on their outdoor adventures!
