We are really looking forward to gaining a tiny taste of what reads to be a beautiful and interesting region, and are travelling mid September this year.
Our plan/idea is to travel via train to Strasbourg (from the UK), spending 2 nights there, then to either:-
travel by train to Colmar prior to hiring a car and exploring the area in that general vicinity (staying in Riquewihr for 2 nights), returning the car to Colmar prior to travelling by train to Murren in Switzerland, or:-
hire the car in Strasbourg, still staying in Riquewihr, and dropping the car in Colmar prior to heading to Switzerland
My query is does anyone have some advice to which option would be the most logical, and also if there are any other recommendations we could use to optimise our short time there, instead of those ideas..???
We are not hugely into museums etc but love exploring the countryside/villages/towns, and generally just absorbing the ambience.
Could this type of journey be done without a vehicle?
Thanks for your help . . . . .
