Bas-Rhin meaning "Lower Rhine" is the more populous and densely populated of the two departments in the Alsace region known for its outstanding Gothic cathedrals. The River Rhine has always been of great historical and economic importance to the area forming the eastern border of the department that is also home to some of the foothills of the Vosges. The area has a heavy German influence due to its history from 1871 - 1919 as part of the German Empire. You'll find on your trip that many of the laws in this department are different from the rest of France with regard to hunting, economic life, local government relationships, and social rights. While on vacation here, you are sure to enjoy the unique history and culture of the area, visiting half-timbered houses and sipping wine in the small villages. Take a look at our France vacation planner to refine the details of your trip to Bas-Rhin.
