Popular GA friendly airfield in the furthest North-East corner of France, north of Strasbourg. It has a 1000m Hard runway and 880m of Grass, but beware that the official TODA/LDA for both is less (800-900m) due a road and powerlines either end.

There is an excellent restaurant on the airfield called Le Saint Exupery https://www.restaurant-lesaintex.fr/ but beware that like many french restaurants they officially stop taking lunch orders early at 13:30 though remain open much later. We arrived at exactly 13:30 and they served us after checking with the chef, 3-4 others flew in about 15 mins later and were offered an abrieviated menu only. Certainly worth the effort though, it has a lovely terrace overlooking the airfield for the summer.
Additionally about 200m up the road and visible from outside the gate, though we didnt visit them, there is a 3star Hotel-Restaurant Champs' Alsace and a Chinese buffet style restaurant Champs'Asie.

6 Euro landing fee, AvGas & UL91 available from the aeroclub. We didnt pay parking as we didnt stay longer than a lunch stop.
