    Colmar Things to Do

    Every evening, going to our usual restaurant at Koïfhus, we passed on this corner of the Rue des Marchands.

    Ribeauvillé Things to Do

    Despite the fact that our guidebook considered Ribeauvillé "not as beautiful as its immediate neighbours" we decided to stop there and give the town a try. It was definitely worth it, mainly because of the slightly strenuous, but very rewarding hike up to Château de St. Ulrich and Château du Girsberg. Château du Haut-Ribeaupierre, the third castle,...

    Eguisheim Things to Do

    Rue du Rempart is the most beautiful street in Eguisheim and consequently the recommended round tour of the village. The ramparts which gave the street its name are not visible from here as they are part of the houses lining the street on one side. However, the houses are more than spectacular: lovely old cottages full of nooks and crannies, all of...
