Almost like visiting an open air museum. So many beautifully preserved houses and buildings. Shops very touristy and parking more expensive than Egusheim but overall excellent place to visit.

It’s a half hour drive and you need a taxi to take you there early in the morning and do only a short visit. You may have to ask the taxi to wait for you while you visit and safe time.

Colmar definitely nearer There are tours to all of the villages organised through the local hotels. Another option as is s cab from Colmar. Agree a price beforehand as they are pricey in France and not plentiful
