Location description from owner
The Alsace region
Sun-kissed Colmar, the history-loaden capital of southern Alsace (Haut-Rhin), is situated in Eastern France 20 km west of the German border and 60 km north of Basle, Switzerland.
Discover the historical center of Colmar, the extensive pedestrian precinct where it is a great pleasure to stroll through picturesque streets and passages with their medieval stud work houses or to take a short boat trip through little Venice.
Marvel at the rich collections of Colmar´s four museums with the world-famous "Isenheim altar", the "Mother of God in the rose hedge" as well as the Dominican Cloister.
Visit the bourgeois birthplace of Bartholdi, the famous sculptor of the Statue of Liberty, transformed nowadays into an interesting museum showing his development and his era.
For people, who enjoy Christmas time and its wonders, a Christmas market tour in and around Colmar is a must. For more see: http://www.marche-de-noel-alsace.com/marchenoel2.htm
The alsatian cuisine, a great experience for gourmets as well as for gourmands! You should try in restaurants or "Winstub" their specialities as there are Flammekueche, Choucroute garni (sauerkraut) or Baeckeofe accompanied by alsatian wine - but only when hungry! For dessert you should indulge in some of their tartes: au mirabelles, quetsch, myrtilles, pommes, or one of their sweet or salted kougelhopf. Travellers whith a sweet tooth should not forget to top their meals with a deliciously sweet white mountain called "Meringue glacée"
From Colmar it´s less than an hours car ride or by rail to visit Strasbourg with its famous gothic cathedral, its stud work houses in the center, its town palaces and the modern building of the european parliament. It is Strasbourg also, where in 1440 Johannes Gutenberg invented the art of printing, which allowed for the first time the mass production of printed books.
Or you visit the automobile museum of the Schlumpf brothers in near Mulhouse with its hundreds of excellently presented cars starting with the very first ones from the 19th century up to modern formula 1 racing cars.
Why not enjoying a wine tour discoving the excellent quality and the disginuished taste of the alsatian wines. You´ll be visiting some of the best renownd wine growers around Colmar for talking to them, tasting some of their best vintages in their often romantic wine-cellars - and taking some of them home for completing your own cellar.
Or put yourself back into an earlier time by visiting some of the "Plus beaux villages de France", which are in less than an hours driving distance from Colmar. Villages and towns like Bergheim, Eguisheim, Kaysersberg, Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr or down-town Strasbourg let you feel you are visiting museums. But it´s not true! These are real living, loving and woking places for contemporary Alsatians.
Should you be an aficionado of history and/or of middle age castles, you´re right in the center of one of the richest regions with castles of all sizes and times. The reason: the Rhine valley and its plain were fighting ground over the centuries from the time of the Romans up to the 20th century. Between 1630 and 1945 the Alsace and its people changed involuntarily five times their sovereigns: Austria - France - Germany - France - Germany - France. No wonder that you would not be able to follow a conversation between native Alsatians should you master only one of the three languages they speak and which three they use very often even within one sentence: French, German and the alsatian dialect.
Finally for sporty people the alsatian plain as well as the densly forested Vosges mountains nearby are the ideal terrain for their activities during summer as well as for downhill or cross-country skiing in winter.
