Colmar



I'm pleased to announce that this is the very first postcard sent to me through this blog!



Colmar is one of the prettiest towns in the Haut-Rhin with cobbled streets, Alsatian buildings and brightly coloured half-timbered houses. The canal quarter known as Petite Venise is particularly well preserved and includes the tanner's quarters. It is not hard to imagine 16th century wine merchants shipping their wine along these waterways.

In fact, wine is a good reason to come to Colmar as it sits conveniently in the heart of the Alsace Route du Vin. Those who enjoy flowery white wines should investigate the route that runs from Marlenheim to Thann. From Colmar you'll be able to take trips out to ancient medieval towns such as Eguisheim where two grands crus are produced - Eichberg and Pfersigberg.

Back in Colmar try to make time for the Musee d'Unterlinden which is situated in a Dominican monastery. Here you'll find the famous Issenheim Altarpiece.
