Escorted Rail Tours to Colmar

A pretty Alsace market town

Located in the Alsace, just on the French side of the border with Germany, lies the pretty town of Colmar. The centre of Colmar sits on the Lauch River, directly east of the Vosges Mountains, and is connected to the Rhine by canal. Colmar was the last town in France to be freed after the second World War, on February 2nd 1945.

Today Colmar is one of the prettiest towns in Alsace, with half-timbered and brightly coloured houses sitting on cobbled lanes. It is worth taking a stroll through the picturesque canal quarter, now known as 'Petite Venise'. Bedecked with flowers and built along the meandering canals, the buildings look as though they have come straight out of a fairytale.
