We had a lovely time in this beautiful area, so many happy children squealing with delight in the fountains. The gorgeous carrousel close by. Simply lovely!!

A very informal atmosphere, park, fountain, children running through the water and laughter. This is wat summer is about. Old Rapp would be happy if he knew.

You probably will pass by this place if you are coming from Colmar Centrale towards the old town. Just dropped by for some shots and moved on to old town shortly.

Many places to sit and people watch A merry go round , Walter fountains and children playing. We wanted to picnic here but ran out of time.

The statue dominates a rather arid paved square (less arid if the fountains are playing), and it is easy to pass it by and walk on to the Champ de Mars, an attractive but smallish shady park. Its main virtue is in drawing one's attention to General Rapp - who was he and what did he do for Alsace? Thought... More

This is an interesting statue, mainly because of the confident stride the General is taking. Parking is both convenient (located underneath) and reasonable. It is where we started each day in Colmar, and I enjoyed viewing this on each occasion.
