Sélestat Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


This is the town where the Christmas tree was invented. Given the ubiquitous nature of this festive symbol, such a distinction ought to have granted the town universal renown.

It has preserved many traces of this glorious era in its architecture... plus a fabulous library.
