Photography Tour Overview: The Alsace region lies on the French border with Germany, and has many associations with its international neighbor including the Germanic language of Alsatian. The Alsace capital is Strasbourg, also Germanic in name, and the seat of several European institutions. Photographically, colorful half-timbered buildings are abundant in the Alsace towns and villages, and are topped by the unusual sight of Storks nesting on the Alsace skyline.

Our itinerary . . .

Just a moment, first things first! We suggest that you set your camera clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.

Days 1, 2 + 3  |  The Alsace
We'll rendezvous at our hotel near the Strasbourg airport on the morning of day 1, and head south pausing for our included introductory lunch featuring a digital presentation by John. On days 1 through 3 we'll photograph many of the Alsace villages that are quaint, ancient and quite colorful because the locals share a penchant for the pastel. Nesting Storks rule the Alsace skyline, and those in our group with even minimal bird photography skills will return home with some great shots of the pink roof-dwellers. Beyond the 'big scene', the Alsace villages are crammed with signature shots provided by signs, doorways, narrow streets, and flower-clad windows. Our base for three nights is near Colmar.

Day 4  |  Strasbourg
It's more of the same, but in a variety of new villages as we head for Strasbourg today. Despite being one of Europe's political seats, the city's old town is as photogenic as ever, and a veritable step back in time. The included dinner on the last night of our photography tour will feature an 'It's You!' presentation of clients in action by John.

Day 5  |  Departure day
As there is no photography scheduled for the day of departure, your flight home can be arranged for any time today. If you are participating in our Burgundy photography tour, free transport to Dijon is available.
