    Title

    We were not satisfied with the end of the trip: After biking 50 km we had expected to be able to shower at the hotel where the luggage was stored. The hotel was not cooperative at all - even when we suggested that we could take a quick shower in a room ...

    Alsace Bike Tour.

    Everybody loved the biketour. The landscape was very charming.We had chosen Category A hotels , where we would be 2 nights in 4 star hotels. But we spent only 1 night in a 4 star hotel. Rooms at the hotel in Kaysersberg were very small and tight.
