      old writers club in Little France

      Strasbourg Jun 29, 2015 at 3:20 PM

      As you walk towards Little France ( from ? NW) and just before the half timbered houses begin there is a vegetarian olde worlde cafe. There were pictures of some famous writers on the wall of the stairway leading to an upper floor. Apparently some rich benefactor had put forward money for a writers club to have its meetings there. I think this was in the 1800s or early 1900s but could be earlier. I can't remember the name of the place or the full history. Anyone help?

    • MSM and WW2 Normandy Beaches -One base or two?

      France 2 hours ago

      Apologies if this question has been asked (in some form) a thousand or so times already.
      Just fantasizing about a 9 day trip to France late September. DEFINITELY want to see Mt St Michel and full day at the WW2 sites. We would take train from Paris and pick up a car at most convenient suggested location.
      FULL DISCLOSURE: I have a tendency to underestimate distances and, as a result, end up on endless - albeit often enjoyable - drives. Is it practical to keep one base between MSM and the Normandy beaches without subjecting my wife to 4 hours in the car? also, I HATE tolls roads.

      We would budget 4 or 5 nights in the West and the rest in Paris (with, likely, Paris at the end of our stay).
      Any suggestions, guidance or opinions solicited (and appreciated, in advance).

    • Buying tickets/Only have one day in the park

      Paris Jun 22, 2015 at 10:48 AM

      We will be visiting Disneyland Paris on 9 July 2015 with kids between the ages of 9 and 18. Unfortunately we only have one day to visit the park.

      My question is as follows:

      1. Is it a good idea to visit both parks in one day or rather focus on one park. If so which one is the better option.
      2. On the internet it mentions that the entrance fee is 39 Euro but when I sign onto the official website which is a UK website the tickets are 40 Pounds which is a huge difference. How long before the time must you book tickets and why such a vast difference in prices. Also where do you get the cheaper tickets as indicated on the website. We are budget travellers so want to do the visit the cheapest way possible. Thanks

    • Base at Kaysersberg or Turckheim?

      Alsace Jun 18, 2015 at 7:08 PM

      Hi there!

      My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Alsace region in the last week of November. We will be training from Paris to Strasbourg or Colmar, and work our way north or south. The places that we hope to visit are Strasbourg, Colmar, Villages (Eguisheim, Riquewihr, Kayersberg, Turckheim), Europa-Park and Frieburg. We have about 10 days, and will be renting a car from Strasbourg or Colmar (depending where we arrive from).

      Our current itinerary is as follows:
      Day 1: Paris-Strasbourg (Arrive in noon)
      Day 2: Strasbourg
      Day 3: Strasbourg-Rust(Europa-park), arrive in the evening
      Day 4: Europa-Park
      Day 5: Rust-Frieburg (Arrive in noon)
      Day 6: Freiburg-Kayersberg/Turckheim (Arrive in evening)
      Day 7/8/9: Explore Egusheim, Colmar, Riquewihr
      Day 10: Colmar-Paris

      Will the above plan be ok?

      Also, will Kayersberg or Turckheim make a better base from Day 6-10? We are looking for a place hat is less touristy, has several restaurans and a market/grocery store nearby so that we can cook, and with friendly neighbours of course!

      Thank you very much!

I'd much prefer the one in the city, but it doesn't have parking (hotel says "Public parking is available at a nearby location and charges are applicable." Can anyone tell me how far away such parking lots are and how much they charge? We would only need it for one overnight.
