A Weekend in Alsace – Part 1

My very last Vacation, before I retire, I spent with my Daughter and her Family. Besides staying with them in Frankfurt, we spent the Weekend in charming Alsace, France.
St Hippo - just before departure 
The Car was fully packed

Alsace is widely know for it’s food and Wine

We stayed in the small village of Saint Hippolyte, at Logis Hotel le Parc. We all were very satisfied with our stay.

St Hippo - we had an excellent Riesling at dinner from here
We bought Wine here
St Hippo Pink House
Some typical Alsace style houses in Saint Hippolyte
St Hippo wineyards 
Wineyards everywhere
St Hippo I - ML - papa 
A rest is good from time to time. From here it is several footpaths up to the Hills and Chateau Haute-Koenigsbourg and along the Wineyards.
Leander is very interested in Water;-)
S H Creme brule 
You can’t go to France without having a Crème brûlée. This one was brilliant.
Well, this was some glimpse from St Hippolyte.

More from Alsace to come…..

My daughter-in-law's sister lives in Strasbourg and I was lucky enough to visit her a few years ago. We toured the Alsace region, the vineyards, the small villages, beautiful! And we toured through Chateau Haute-Koenigsbourg too, what a wonderful area. I really want to go back again!

För ca 15 år sedan var vi en grupp som hade cykelsemester i Alsace.
Vi cyklade i 13 dagar - 11 var regndagar.
Hoppas du hade bättre tur med vädret.
Vingårdarna var i alla fall väldigt trevliga att besöka.
Kul att se bilder därifrån!!

Tor, I'm so in love! The photos are amazing. This is also a place I lived for about 8 months. I miss all of it's beauty and can't wait to go on a short vacation there one day, hopefully with Cammie!
