CroisiEurope's new custom designed hotel barge – the Madeleine

The brand new custom designed hotel barge – the Madeleine – features twelve outward facing cabins with windows or portholes and private bathrooms, a spacious lounge and dining room, air conditioning and a fleet of bicycles for the use of the guests, who are looked after by a team of five highly-qualified and experienced crew. The Madeleine operates in Alsace, from Strasbourg to Lagarde. Adored by boating tours, this part of the canal, also known as the Greenway, crosses the plain of Alsace and the Vosges. It links Strasbourg and Saverne - the entryway to Alsace at the foot of the Vosges Mountains - and continues through a grand forest to Lutzelbourg in the Lorraine region. Its spectacular architecture and many structural works include the Saint-LouisArzviller inclined plane - unique in Europe – where boats are hoisted along the cliff before reaching Xouaxange - a charming small town in the Lorraine.
