"Saverne - gateway to Alsace" Saverne by pedroswift
Saverne Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 30 photos
The classic photograph of THE tourist site (sight) in Saverne is of the Castle of Rohan taken from across the canal in the boat moorings - preferably on a still day so there are nice reflections. Thankfully my shipmate A.T. took a better shot than I did so you would not be disappointed.
The city museum is housed in the castle and I beseech you to visit. Pick an afternoon to do so or check carefully the times of opening for the month in which you visit.
"The emblem of the town is a unicorn. Legend has it that a unicorn's horn was found in one of the nearby castles in ruins. It is more likely that a narwhal's tooth was discovered and mistaken for a unicorn's horn. However, it gave its name to the local beer : Bière de la Licorne."
So, trying the beer is obligatory! ......votre sante!

- In a nutshell:Beer anyone???
