Laurene is the founder of the My weekend in Alsace. She is from Britany but she has lived in Alsace since 2014. She fell in love with her region and decided to create a blog and to buy, with her husband, an Alsatian house in a small village in the Kochersberg, next to Strasbourg. She likes to explore Alsace, on foot,on her bike, on her horse (named Obiwan) or in her small car, a Fiat 500 car, to find good spots for her readers.

Sélestat Christmas Market

Sélestat Christmas market is not strictly speaking a Christmas market. There is indeed a small Christmas village with a few chalets, but it’s not the main attraction in town during the holidays. Actually, visitors come to Sélestat for all the activities surrounding the Christmas tree. The tree holds a very important place here, as the first written mention of the Christmas Tree was found in Sélestat, dating back from 1521. Yes, it’s pretty impressive! If you want to know more about the history of the Christmas tree, let me recommend you to download this short and very informative guide. Thanks to...

The Alsace Wine Route by bicycle

If you want to come to visit Alsace, I would imagine that you are thinking of going on the famous Alsace Wine Route. It’s a very good idea, but do you know that you can do it by bicycle? The Véloroute du Vignoble (Eurovélo 5) follows the Wine Route and lets you discover the vineyard differently: no noise, no pollution, facing the wind, the scents of earth and grapevines gorged on sun (or rain, depending on the forecast… but please remember that it’s very hot in summer in Alsace!). As a bonus, you can easily take a break anywhere, which is not the case by...

Hotel Etc in Strasbourg – Great location and good value!

I know that you like to find good deals for accommodation when you come to Alsace… So I have found one just for you in Strasbourg! It’s the Hotel Etc in Strasbourg, a 2-star hotel located right in the city centre, on the Grande Île. It’s a very simple hotel, but I’m writing about it, because its location is amazing, its decoration is way nicer than usual chain hotels and because of its very good value. Prices can be very high in the city centre of Strasbourg, but it’s always nice to find an ideal location, without paying too much… so here...

Maison de Thé Les Jardins de Gaïa

Les Jardins de Gaïa is an Alsatian company specialised in organic and fairtrade teas. I have already mentioned it, when I recounted a tea ceremony I took part in there. I then went back several times enjoy their tea house, the Maison de Thé Les Jardins de Gaïa. Their tea room is very pleasant and peaceful. The inside lounge room was a bit disappointing, as it lacks a bit of charm to my taste. On sunny days, it won’t really matter, as you’ll discover the long shady terrace surrounded by zen gardens. You will find on the menu, a huge selection of...

SensoRied, a free barefoot path in the Ried

After having tried Lac Blanc’s barefoot trail, as well as that of Wesserling Park, I went this time to SensoRied, a barefoot path located in Muttersholtz, in the Alsatian Ried (the plain). One of the main advantage of SensoRied is that it’s free, making it the perfect activity to visit Alsace on a small budget and as a family. I’m not a big fan of barefoot paths (my feet quickly hurt!) and I was agreeably surprised by this trail, that I found to be very pleasant, even for my sensitive feet! You will walk on this path at your own pace for about 1.5km, going from one...
