- "Alsace is the heir of a rich history that has always given it an international outlook throughout 10 imperial cities, the Thirty Years War, the Industrial Revolution, and various other influences; history is revealed in the towns and villages, from the streets with medieval half-timbered houses and window boxes, to the churches and fountains in the squares."
- "Naturally, tourism has become one of the major strengths of the region: cathedrals, castles, museums of all kinds, houses on river banks, traditional and rich vineyards lie within 170 km in the relative countryside. Gastronomy delights both the traveler and the Alsatians. As a Central European region, it is home to the European Parliament in Strasbourg."
- "A long industrial tradition, research centers and universities that promote strong cultural activities of high quality, provide economic prominence to "la belle province"."
