Greetings. We're four South Africans planning a barging holiday in Alsace- Lorraine in mid-August, 2006. We'll travel from Zurich to Strasbourg by train on Friday, August 18, and need to get to our barging base at Lutzelbourg, preferably that same day. Does anyone have any suggestions on (a) the best and/or quickest way to get from Strasbourg to Lutzelbourg and (b) any nice places to stay overnight in Lutzelbourg. We only have to collect our barge (a Locaboat Penichette) on the Saturday (August 19), but we'd like to spend the evening in Lutzelbourg as we've heard it's really worth a visit.
Any help or advice would be greately appreciated
