    27 ideas to visit Colmar in Alsace – Things to do, see and taste

    Author : Laurène - My Weekend in Alsace

    A visit to Colmar is a must-stop while spending a weekend in Alsace. Its reputation as a pretty town is firmly established, and frankly, it is completely well-deserved! It’s a true picture-postcard town, where it’s extremely pleasant to wander around. I don’t believe that I know one single person who didn’t fall under the spell of Colmar! As for me, I can’t get enough of it, even if I have lived there and that I have explored it countless times with friends visiting it for the first time.

    A Complete Guide to Colmar–France’s Enchanting Medieval City

    Author : Laura Longwell - Travel Addicts
    Dazzling colors, canals, the wonder of half-timbered buildings that look like a perfect illustration—these are the things of Colmar, France. Its streets twist and meander into tiny alleys and then open into small squares used by traders and merchants centuries ago.
    Its mostly pedestrian center is a festival of brightly tiled roofs and even brighter facades, welcoming the curious. Many visitors blitz through this lovely city on a day trip or a brief shore excursion, but there are so many things to do in Colmar that many can get overlooked on such a short visit. I know because that’s how Lance and I first visited Colmar. (...)

    Colmar: France’s fairytale town

    Author : Lucy from the On the Luce Blog
    Walking the streets of Colmar is like watching those childhood fairy stories come to life. There’s a wooden turret just perfect for Rapunzel to let her hair down from, tiny cottages that would make the perfect home for seven dwarfs and a candy-coloured bakery Hansel and Gretel would love to get their teeth into. In real life, Colmar is a small town in the Alsace region of northeast France. This is where France meets Germany and the two cultures come together to create a unique mix – think of it as France with a twist. (...)

Little Venice received its’ name as an ode to its’ Italian counterpart.

    The Cutest Town In France

    Author : Anna from the Travel outside of the box blog
    Colmar was so adorable that despite the glaring sunshine, I had to remove my glasses; I couldn’t stand to have anything between my eyes and the candy-colored, half-timbered houses that lined the canals. It’s the town from the opening scene of Beauty and the Beast, IRL. It’s what dreams of made of - sugar-coated and dipped in chocolate. (...)

    12 Sites to see in Colmar

    by Teri from
    A trip to Colmar is a trip to the villages of your childhood fairy tales.  Founded in the 9th century, this town has layers of history and charm. Spared from the wars of the French Revolution and the World Wars, the architecture dates back to the 13th centuries and is a reflection of both German and French rule that controlled the Alsace Region.  As you walk the city, make sure to keep an eye out for dates painted onto the side of buildings.
