Colmar : Michelin's recommendations
Whether viewed on foot or from a boat along the canals of this “Little Venice”, the fountains, half-timbered houses and geranium-decked balconies represent quintessential Alsace, unchanged by either war or the passage of time.

The perfect base from which to explore the region’s wine route, Colmar is also the ideal place to discover the gastronomic delights of Alsace.
