  • A morning Walking Tour in Colmar, Alsace

Yesterday morning Pierre took Jodie from Australia on a Walking Tour in the old town of Colmar. It was a beautiful day and we took great pleasure in discovering the old town of Colmar with its many half-timbered houses built by the nobility and aristocracy from the 14th to the 17th centuries.

Here are a few photos of sites we discovered yesterday morning on our Walking Tour of the historic town of Colmar in Alsace:

    1. Hi Steve,
      Thank you for your email.
      Unfortunately I am currently in Annecy (French Alps) and won’t be available in Colmar for the 5 May.
      I wish you a great stay in Alsace!
