We originally started our day planning to visit Mont Ste. Odile and Sélestat and got sidelined in Obernai. We absolutely loved Obernai, but when our parking time ran out, we reverted to Plan A and drove to Sélestat. We accidentally got on the Autoroute so arrived very quickly!

Sélestat is a much larger town than Obernai and has more modern buildings. However, the center of town is quite charming, including this fountain square.

Got children . . . ?

Many towns in France have a carousel either in a town square or in a Place beside the church. These are always fun for the kids. You can have a coffee while they ride and everyone is happy.

If you don't have children with you, have the coffee anyway and enjoy watching someone else's children!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Busy, pleasant, has nesting storks!
  • Cons:Not as charming as we thought, but very nice.
  • In a nutshell:Quaint, fun, pretty and the storks were great.
