Saturday, July 11

We will start our trip by crossing borders into France and visiting the charming village of Riquewihr, a medieval town right in the heart of the Alsatian vineyards, where you’ll get to wander around the well preserved old town and have the chance to pick up a bottle of famed Alsatian wine. After some free time, we’ll be heading to the historic town of Colmar; known for its impeccably preserved old town. With our guide leading the way, we’ll get to know the town’s most important historic sites:

  • Discover “Little Venice,” an area known for its canals
  • Walk through the famous old town, seeing Maison Pfister, the Bartholdi Museum, and Saint Martin Church

After the tour, you’ll have the afternoon and evening free to explore more of the city’s sights and pedestrian-friendly lanes, and to enjoy more Alsatian specialties on your own. Our estimated time of return in Kaiserslautern is around 11:00 p.m.

Transportation
Included transportation on this tour is by air-conditioned bus.

Passport and Visa Requirements
A tourist passport is required for all trips outside of Germany.

Important passport rules are as follows:
If you have a passport with a SOFA stamp on any page (a “No-Fee” passport), you are provided permission to reside in Germany, NOT to travel outside of Germany. You have to have a tourist passport in addition to the SOFA/”No-Fee” passport to travel outside of Germany. You cannot travel with a RED Official passport as that is used only for the purpose of a mission or deployment. If you have a passport with a detachable SOFA card clipped inside, it is acceptable to travel with as that was issued originally as a tourist passport. If you are not sure: a tourist passport will be BLUE and will be valid for 10 years for adults. It cannot contain a SOFA stamp on any page or it is not acceptable. A child’s tourist passport (under 15 years of age) is valid for 5 years, but will not have a SOFA stamp in it anywhere. All of this information has been verified to be correct with the Grafenwoehr Passport Office.

Baggage Allowance
Each adult is entitled to one luggage and one personal item. Luggage should be able to be stored below the bus and the personal item should contain whatever you might need on the bus. Pillows and blankets do not count for the personal item. If you have additional items such as strollers, carseats, etc. please send us a message to make those arrangements.

Currency
Euro is the currency you will be using on your trip. We strongly advise that you take debit/bank cards and credit cards, which can be used to withdraw cash at local banks, as needed. You can use most debit/credit cards at ATMs, but make sure to check with your home bank about withdrawal fees. We suggest that you inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans, so that they won’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.

Time Zones
France has the same time zone as Germany, Central European Time (CET).

Cuisine
In both towns, sidewalk vendors are known for their steaming crepes, while mouthwatering pastries and hot café au lait beckon from cafes. In restaurants, the prix fixe option is a popular way to enjoy a set three- or four-course menu for a good price.

Health
There are no major health risks when traveling to France. It is always advisable to check with your doctor or health-care provider for the latest updates.

Tipping
At the conclusion of your trip, it’s customary to offer your Trip Leader a gratuity. We recommend tipping €1-2 per person per day for your Trip Leader. Tips can only be paid in cash.

Travel Insurance
We recommend you get travel insurance to reimburse you for unforeseen trip cancellation. Please follow this link to get a quote through our partner SevenCorners.
