They form an L-shape from Germany’s Saarbrücken south down the Saar Valley and east to Strasbourg, France, known as the city of roads. These two fabulous waterways create an ideal setting for your Boating Vacations in Alsace! The Marne au Rhin runs 314 kilometres (195 miles) from Vitry-le-Francois to Strasbourg, passing through the amazing Arzviller transversal inclined plane completed in 1968. It replaced 17 locks and raises boats 45 metres (147 feet). The Canal des Houillères de la Sarre dates from 1860 and extends 64 kilometres (about 40 miles) from Saarbrücken to the Marne au Rhin. The perfect boating region for... Nature Lovers Truly a unique region of France on the western border of Germany, the Alsace-Lorraine-Saarland is rife with lush forests and expanses of marshland that support a host of wild creatures. The Delta de la Sauer is just one of the 21 nature reserves in the area! History & Heritage Grand castles and soaring cathedrals in Germany's Saarbrücken and France's Strasbourg signify the rich historic past of the region. Whilst enjoying the history and heritage of these waters, be sure to see the Basilica St. Johann in Saarbrücken and Rohan Palace in Saverne! Gastronomy In Alsace-Lorraine-Saarland, the pig is known as le seigneur cochon (the noble pig)! Obviously, pork is big on Alsace Boating Vacations! Choucroute alsacienne, for example, is sauerkraut with sausage, pork or ham. Try tourte, a pie with ham, bacon or ground pork with eggs and leeks!

For added peace of mind you can also purchase bike theft insurance. • Early boarding and late checkout Why not get more time on the water and book an Early Boarding and/or a Late check-out service. Early Boarding enables you to collect your boat between 11am - 12pm, or from 2pm on the first day (instead of 4pm). Late Check-out means you can return your boat by 12pm on the last day (instead of 9am). Please note: Owing to operational constraints, it sometimes may not be possible to offer this service. • Wifi A 3G Mini router, which uses SFR Mobile Broadband, provides internet access wherever there is a mobile phone signal.
