saar,  boat cruise

Cruising on the Saar

The inscription on the back of the boat reads "Sainte Odile - Strasbourg". I have not managed to find any information about this particular boat, but I have found that another larger one will take you on a 7-day cruise over the Mosel and Rhine to Strasbourg. That should give you plenty of time to contemplate the quaint villages and vineyards along the way. In the 19th century, a canal was built to connect the Saar with Lorraine and Alsace. A smaller boat could take this more direct route to Strasbourg, but not, I think, the Sainte Odile.

  1. This looks like a huge boat to be cruising canals! Is this a new thing in Europe? I never saw anything like this when I lived there.
