Advice for travelling out of Strasbourg much needed!

I am looking at flying in and out of Strasbourg during mid term break and want to make the most of being in the area. Just wondering where I should go if I want to get out of Strasbourg for two or three days..thinking of maybe a train ride somewhere..just not sure what direction to head in and what to do? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Day trip to Colmar by rail would be a good start, as an independent side trip. Or look here otstrasbourg.fr/en/leisure-activities/leisur… and here otstrasbourg.fr/en/…trips.html (the right hand column might help more).

Can you get to Gerardmer by train, Alsascienne? That is a place that is a little bit different.....

Sadly Gerardmer is not accessible by train ... and as to how to get there I can only suggest hire car from Strasbourg. Perhaps the next step is to contact the Gerardmer tourist office, but even their website shows roads as being the only way to get there!

Baden-Baden is also a pleasant day trip, although most journeys involve a change in Appenweier.

Good call tradeform, even if Baden Baden is in Germany. Don't forget to take your swimming costume and enjoy a valuable and enjoyable couple of hours at the Caracalla Therme!

Yes, I like Baden-Baden too, good idea.

Colmar is lovely, but not a massive contrast from Strasbourg.
