DAY 1: STRASBOURG FLAMMEKUECHE ATELIER / AFTERNOON OBERNAI REGION WINE TOUR

This morning, learn the secrets of making traditional Alsatian “tarte flambée” during a 45-minute baking workshop with an expert chef. This is a hands-on cookery lesson in a local “winstub” with group size limited to eight people. Finish the class by eating your own freshly baked flammekueche and wash it down with a glass of wine! It makes for the perfect self-made, local lunch. The price includes the cooking class; then you get to eat 1/2 a traditional flammekueche and 1/4 of a traditional sweet flammekueche. A drink is also included: 25cl beer (must be 18+), 1 soft drink or a small bottle of mineral water, or 1 glass of Alsace white wine.

After some free time for lunch, meet your guide for an afternoon wine tour. We will take you in the Obernai wine producing area where you will have the opportunity to visit and wine taste in 2 local wineries to learn about the typical Alsace white wines.

On this day 3, leave Strasbourg and cross the Border into Southern Germany to visit one of the most beautiful regions of the area with your English speaking tour guide. Depart for the spa town of Baden Baden nestled at the foot of the Black Forest. The city has attracted royalty, the rich and celebrities over the centuries. Follow your guide and discover the numerous architectural splendors and magnificent villas that are lined along the Lichtentaler Allee.
