An afternoon at the Ribeauvillé Casino Spa

The Balneo and Spa area of Ribeauvillé Casino is located at the entrance of the village of Ribeauvillé, on the Alsace Wine Route. This complex of the group Barrière includes a casino, a hotel and a balneo-spa area. However, you don’t need to stay at the hotel to enjoy the spa, as it’s open to everyone. This area dedicated to well-being is actually divided into two sections. The balneo area works as thermal baths: you can buy a package for a few hours or for a day, giving you access to all facilities. The spa is called Spa Diane Barrière and offers various treatments independently or as en extra to the balneo area...

Easter in Alsace – Lammele (paschal lamb) recipe

Easter in Alsace is synonymous with paschal lamb. As everywhere in France, you might say… Yes, but no! The paschal lamb is a Genoise made in a mold in the shape of a lamb eaten at Easter! It has nothing to do with an old disappearing tradition… Not only lammele (name given to this sponge cake in Bas-Rhin, but lamala in Haut-Rhin) flourish on bakery stalls, but molds are also used by families. It would be out of the question to celebrate Easter without lammele! You can find some and bake somme all throughout Easter and not only on Easter Sunday. The mold traditionally used is...
