Visiting the beautiful Colmar first

You will visit the capital of the Alsacian wines; situated between the Vosges and the Rhine, Colmar offers you an exciting glimpse of 1000 years of European history. Stroll through the pedestrianized and protected zones, enjoy its rich and well preserved heritage, taking you from the middle ages into the 18th century: from “Little Venice” which has become the “must” venue for photographers from the world over to the Tanners district easily recognized by its grand white-fronted beautiful houses.
Following your sightseeing enjoy your lunch break and if time permits, take a boat journey through “little Venice” for an extra-ordinary experience; after this, you will start another spectacular journey to visit the most charming village of Eguisheim.

Highlights of sightseeing in Colmar

  • The beautiful Tanner district
  • The Pfister house
  • The Koifhus
  • Unterlinden Museum
  • Le Marché couvert de Colmar
  • 14th century Dominican church
  • The “Little Venice”
  • Fantastic French lunch – probably the best in France

Eguisheim  – A mind blowing experience!

You will fall in love instantly with this Alsace wine village upon arriving and as you wander around Eguisheim’s narrow paved streets full of beautiful old half-timbered houses with very artistic geranium-bedecked wooden windows and flower covered balconies.

You will enjoy visiting the Leon Beyer, Castle of Counts Eguisheim, Chateau du Hohlandsbourg, Maison Wolfberger, Chateau Saint Leon, Saint-Leon Fountain, Eglise Saints-Pierre-et-Paul, Hubert et Heidi Hausherr, all that will surely steal your breath away.

Enjoy Basel, Switzerland
