Alsace has two international airports: EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, and Strasbourg Airport. Whether you’re coming to Alsace for your seminar or business event, take the plane!
Strasbourg and Mulhouse: air gateways to Alsace
EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg occupies a very strategic position, with a tri-national outlook. The airport is on the border of three countries and above all three economically strong regions (Alsace, North-West Switzerland and Baden-Württemberg in Germany). Moreover, it is managed jointly by France and Switzerland. With 5.88 million passengers in 2013, it is France’s 7th biggest airport.
Strasbourg Airport saw its passenger numbers increase by 1.3% with 1.2 million passengers in 2013. It has 29 direct routes from Strasbourg, 23 in Europe and 6 outside Europe.
From the airports in Alsace, the main cities of the region are easily accessible. By taking the train, you can reach Strasbourg’s central station in less than 10 minutes from Strasbourg Airport. Then Colmar is 30 minutes from the station. The city of Mulhouse is connected to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg by bus and TER (regional express trains) via Saint-Louis. A rail link project is under way to make things even easier!
Getting to a seminar in Alsace by plane
Alsace is a central destination, easily connected to the whole of Europe, making it an ideal destination for a business seminar, convention or other business tourism activity. To invite colleagues who are geographically distant, nothing could be easier: Strasbourg is on average 1 hour from Paris, 3h from London or Berlin, or even 5h from Moscow by plane.
Coming to Alsace is a chance to discover our rich architectural and gastronomic heritage, but you can also hire your seminar room directly at the airport: a very handy solution to bring together colleagues from France, Germany and all over Europe! A business centre with 6 rooms awaits you at Strasbourg Airport. You can also opt for a team-building session at the Flight Adventures centre (training programmes, etc.). In Mulhouse, we’ve already mentioned the Business Center at EuroAirport. So, which one will you choose?
