    Fairy Tale-like City

    by earth2eartha Written Mar 30, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The small city of Colmar is probably the most charming place I've ever visited! It looked like I walked into a live fairy tale... The small town is very picturesque and sweet... The houses and establishments all look like they belong with each other, and hardly anybody speaks English - which in my opinion adds to the charm. It felt more authentic. Just go there, spend a day or two exploring the location (you won't need more time than that)... Walk around, eat their yummy desserts and drink their wine. It's a great place to spend outside of the bustling city of Paris, just to relax and take it easy. It's beautiful! Trust me!

    Alsacian wines

    by thinking Written Aug 19, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Alsace enjoys exceptional soils and a generous climate unite to produce remarkable wines. Protected from oceanic influence by the Vosges mountains, Alsace enjoys practically the lowest rainfall in France (400-500mm per year) and is blessed with a semi-continental climate, sunny, hot and dry.

    This climate is ideal for slow, extended ripening of the grapes, giving wines with elegant, complex aromas.


    The geology of Alsace is a genuine mosaic, made up of granite, limestone, gneiss, schist and sandstone. Such varied soils bring out the best in each different grape variety.

    The vineyards extend for one hundred kilometres from north to south along the eastern foothills of the Vosges, at 200-400m of altitude, covering an area of 14500 hectares in production.

    Alsace Wine Route

    by annk Updated Sep 1, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Colmar is located in north eastern France in the Alsace Region about 2/3 of the way down the wine route. If you visit the cities of Colmar and Strasbourg, take time to see the picturesque little wine towns. There are over 100 of them. Best way to see them is by car but if you are travelling by train you can take 1/2 day guided van tours, or catch a bus from the train station.

    Churches

    by Kate-Me Written Jul 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In Colmar you'll find the Dominican's Church and the Saint-Martin's Church - both are examples of Gothic architecture.
    We paid a short visit to both but I enjoyed St-Martin's in the Old Town best.
