Other means of transportation between Colmar & Franche-Comte (e.g. Belfort)

by CALSF

Hi, I'm very ignorant on this so bear with me. Can anyone please let me know if there is other transportation between Colmar and the Franche-Comte region (specfically Belfort) besides the train?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,
I'm afraid not, from both Colmar and Belfort, the nearest airport is Mulhouse (=> no plane "between")
Since the train journey is only 55mn to 1h10 with 1 train about each hour, there are no busses

Thanks mariev. In case of a rail strike what are the options or will I be stranded for sure?

CALSF ...LOL
A strike at the SNCF?
You know France too well :-)

Jeannette, French rail strikes, aren't they a local custom? ;) Really if it weren't for my possibly missing my return flight home, for sure I would not mind being stranded in Colmar or anywhere else in France!

RE: RE: Other means of transportation between Colmar & Franche-Comte (e.g. Belfort)

Well, if depends what you mean by "completely stranded" : if you only have to leave Colmar, there is still hope : if you have to take a plane either in Strasbourg or in Mulhouse (both 65km from Colmar), there are airports shuttles from Colmar to those airports (infos by calling the airports)
Form Belfort, i must admit : i don't know - maybe rent a car

RE: RE: Other means of transportation between Colmar & Franche-Comte (e.g. Belfort)

My flight leaves from Basel/Mulhouse Euroairport so it's good to know there are shuttles-thanks mariev! We were also investigating car rental from either said airport or in Belfort. Can you recommend any car rental companies? I tried Auto Europe and Alamo for now but nothing came up. Thx. again.

For Mulhouse airport, did you look at http://www.euroairport.com/ ?
For Belfort, since the town is deeply linked with Peugeot, the most likely car rental agency would be Avis i think

RE: RE: Other means of transportation between Colmar & Franche-Comte (e.g. Belfort)

by CALSF

Ok, thanks for the additional information. I will check it out.

I also found a taxi shuttle from Mulhouse airport (they have Colmar as destination listed, not Belfort, but who knows ...) http://www.taximulhouseaeroport.fr/

You're welcome

Travel Tips for Colmar

French or German? Alsatian!

by Sjalen

The language in this part of France is Alsatian. An interesting mix of French and German as you can see in the wine stube sign here. Everyone of course understand French and many people German too but in the streets you will hear Alsatian.

Petite Venise

by tini58de

What a spectacular sight to walk along the river and see all these wonderful old halftimbered houses reflecting in the water - it seems as if you are right there in the Middle Ages! There are dozens of little alleys that you can just wander around - just be prepared that you will not be alone!

Unterlinden Museum

by traveloturc

Situated in a former Monastery the museum contains the prestigious Issenheim Altar painted by Mathis Grunewald ,an important collection of Renisch sculptures and pasintings from the end of the middle ages and from the renaissance

Kopfhaus

by german_eagle

The Kopfhaus (House of Heads) is a magnificent example of German Renaissance architecture. It was built 1609 for the merchant Antonius Burger.

It got its name because of the many heads (or masks) which decorate the alcove.

On top of the gable you can see a statue by Bartholdi (1902)

Petite Venise (Little Venice)

by german_eagle

The charming quarter called "Little Venice" is one of the main attractions of Colmar. Picturesque colourful houses were built to both sides of the small river La Lauch, on which you can do a boat trip.

A lot of nice, small restaurants offer good local food. Just stroll along the cobbled alleys and soak up the atmosphere of past times.
