Holiday reviews from Harskirchen
The boat lift at Arzviller….a magical moment!
We are great lovers of river cruises and this boat rental between Alsace and Lorraine has been fantastic. The crossing of tunnels and locks and the impressive boat lift Arzviller ... We were just as amazed as the children!
