SNCF tickets (Belfort to Colmar)

by CALSF

Hi, does anyone recommend buying rail tickets ahead of time between Belfort and Colmar? Or should there be availability if we want to buy them on the spot?

Thanks.

Hi Cheryl,
I don't think you need to buy these tickets ahead of time.

Shame on you, Cacha :-)

Cheryl, you probably already know that, but don't forget to "composter" your ticket at one of the machines before you board the train.

Thanks Jeannette, I was just wondering about it. I thought that it may not be such a popular journey to warrant prepaid tickets. Oh, thanks also for the advice about stamping the ticket before boarding; I knew that one already. :)

Haha, Cachaseiro, yeah, shame on you!

Only TGV lines can be fully booked (meaning no tickets to be sold), and this happens very rarely, usually at the last days of school holidays. On usual trains one can board without prior reservation, just with a ticket. If there is no place, tough luck, you will be standing. But this seems to me very unlikely.

Hi blanter, thanks for your advice. We're going in July but I doubt there will be a huge amount of people wanting to do the same journey so I don't think we'll prepay for the tickets. If we end up standing, well, luckily it's only an hour's (more or less) duration.

Travel Tips for Colmar

Baeckeoffe.

by breughel

In some restaurants in Colmar you will find on the menu that strange name "Baeckeoffe" which means baker's oven in the Alsatian dialect.
You might wonder what it is and try it like we did.

Baeckeoffe is a mix of sliced potatoes and onions, cubed lamb, beef and pork which have been marinated overnight in Alsatian white wine and juniper berries and slow cooked in a sealed ceramic casserole dish.
In old times women would prepare this dish on Saturday evening and leave it with the baker to cook in his gradually cooling oven on Sunday while they attended church.
I doubt this is still done nowadays.

We tried it but were not really enthusiast. We are not so fond of boiled meat.

Old architecture

by MEdelmann

I think that the whole city is a "must see activity". For example, watch the old houses, like these two amazing "Fachwerk" (framework) buildings. Keep your eyes wide open, colmar is full with such hidden treasures......

.... what a pity that I didn?t take much more pictures. But it was long before my VT-time ... :-))

Dominican Church and "Madonna im Rosenhag"

by german_eagle

The Dominican church is one of the finest examples of simple Gothic architecture. It was built in the first half of the 14th century. Very impressive are the tall pillars which carry the wooden ceiling.

The highlight of the church, though, is a famous picture of Martin Schongauer, the "Madonna im Rosenhag" (1473). Schongauer created a peaceful scene with a meditative Madonna, holding her curiously looking, almost smiling child in her arms. The picture got its name from the many roses in the background. The picture had its original place in the church St. Martin, but it was stolen in 1972. Found and restored later it was transferred to the Dominican church where it is to find now.

Tanners Quarter

by rexvaughan

This is obviously the area where hides were processed and tanned, but is now a lovely preserved area of 17th & 18 Century large buildings. In the center of the area is a large square with restaurants around - a nice place for dining al fresco. We happened there one evening when there was a group in traditional Alasian costumes providing music and dancing. We were well entertained throughout our meal - it was a very nice evening.

A Gem in an austere church

by rexvaughan

This painting has several different names, Virgin in the Rosebush, Madonna and Child in the Rose Arbor, Madonna in the Rose Bower, but by any name it is brilliant. It was painted in 1473 but the colors are as vibrant as if done yesterday. The artist, Martin Schongauer, was born in Alsace and did the painting originally for St. Martin's Cathedral. I don't know how it ended up in the hands of the Dominican Church, but as this church is typically plain (a Dominican trait), the contrast is wonderful. Maybe there is a good story of religious order rivalry here as St. Martin's is a Franciscan. The church is an interesting visit, but the painting is not to be missed. Notice the goldfinches, robins and sparrows which add life to the already beautiful rose bush.
