Holiday reviews from Saverne
A total escape
We already knew Alsace and Lorraine but we have completely rediscovered these regions with this boating trip from Saverne! We were able to visit charming villages at our own pace and enjoy the pleasure of sailing and meeting other boaters. A true escape for a few days!
