Colmar (German between 1871–1918 and 1940–1945: Kolmar) is the third-largest commune of the Alsace region in north-eastern France. It is the seat of the prefecture of the Haut-Rhin department and the arrondissement of Colmar-Ribeauvillé. The town is situated on the Alsatian Wine Route and considers itself to be the "capital of Alsatian wine" (capitale des vins d'Alsace). The city is renowned for its well preserved old town, its numerous architectural landmarks and its museums, among which is the Unterlinden Museum with the Isenheim Altarpiece.

  1. Yes, I know Colmar very well. Was at least 2013 there. It's a fantastic feeling in this town. I enjoyed this place.... 🤗

  2. I know this is France, but it shares a look with Festa in Milwaukee. The colors really pop.

  3. Oh wow - that's stunning!
    What a lovely city!

    Thanks for joining the party at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/06/drip-drip-drip.html

  4. This looks like a park not a real city. Would love to visit and eat something in one of those cafes.

  5. How so lovely structures! They look like those i saw in Strasbourg specially La Petite France. No wonder they are the same as they are of almost the same ages, and both in the Alsace region.
