land of history

The Pays Rhin Brisach, a place that marked history, offers the visitors but also the inhabitants a prestige cultural heritage: the fortified town by Vauban which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage, the museums and the fact that it’s near of Germany.

In the heart of Alsace, between the Rhine and the vineyards, discover Neuf-Brisach, the last city fortified by Vauban, whose fortifications have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage since 2008.

The different sites and museums of the Pays Rhin Brisach are containing lots of interesting stories of the “Rhénane” history and all the characters since the Gallo-Roman time, that have contributed to the evolution of the land we know today !

On board of a cruise ship, go out on the adventure and glide over the Rhine. That river builds the border between France and Germany. Discover an exceptional nature and relaxing atmosphere.

Pass the Rhine and reach Breisach am Rhein (also named Old Breisach)! This German city in the state of Baden Württemberg is only six kilometers far from Neuf-Brisach, on the edge of the Rhine. On the highest point of the city you’ll have a magnificent view over the Rhine and even to the Black Forest, der Schwarzwald.

What about a trip through the past ? On board of a Stream train straight out of the last century, discover the Alsatian nature! Then climb on a cruise ship and pass over the Rhine where you’ll be able to see the nature from another angle.
