On the German border, the Bas-Rhin is a departement where there is a lot to do and to visit. Old churches, castles, charming flower villages and half timbered houses mark out the roads. The forests that cover a third of the surface area are just great for hiking and cycling. Do not forget the Wine Road and the famous Eagles Flight park. The towns are lively and pleasant to live in. Property in Bas-Rhin is very affordable. Would you choose an apartment in the Petite France area of Strasbourg? Or a villa style house in Saverne, pleasant little town on the banks of the canal? Unless you prefer Obernai, a very pleasant little tourist town in the midst of the vineyards.
