Nice old town centre. We spent about 3 hours looking around and eating in an restaurant. Take the time to look at Little Venice. It is not particularly big, but it does have a certain quaint style.

Colmar is a fairy tale! It has a quaint feeling, easily walkable, and so very scenic. I had seen photos before my trip, but seeing it in person was truly breathtaking.

Walked into a beautiful story book setting! Only thing missing is the Disney music playing in the background. Get ready for the need to want to take a picture of everything !
