Getting around in Alsace
Already in Alsace ? Welcome ! Alsace is a small region where it is is easy to move around.
The A 35 motorway crosses Alsace from the North to the South going through Lauterbourg, Strasbourg, Obernai, Sélestat, Colmar, Mulhouse et Saint-Louis (next to Basel city in Switzerland).
It takes about two hours to go from Lauterbourg to Saint Louis, which is to cross Alsace. For your information here are a few examples of the time needed to get around Alsace.

There is also a network of buses and coaches. The most simple way to organize your trip is to surf on Vialsace a site that enables you to plan your trip with public transportation.
In spite of all this, not everything is reachable through public transport.You will find some activities without a car on the site of the Alsatian tourist office.
With 2500 kms of bike paths and green paths Alsace is very attractive to cyclists. For more information I invite you to go to the site Cycling in Alsace.
