We are staying overnight in Colmar en route to Tuscany on Friday 30th May. Unfortunately it can only be a flying visit (this time) so we will arrive at approximately 7pm and have to be on our way mid-morning the next day. We will probably stay at the Best Western Grand Hôtel Bristol or Mercure Colmar Champ de Mars.
We are travelling with our 8 month old so we can't really take advantage of an evening out but hoped to at least take a walk round the Old Town before we have to get on our way. At what time do things start to open on a Saturday morning (shops, cafes etc.)? I've read that the little train gives a quick overview of the town - from what time does it run? We could possibly take a walk on the Friday evening (with the baby in a sling) - would we see more/get more of a feel for the town this way?
I'm sure we will return and explore properly - this will just have to be a taster. Many thanks
