Colmar is, since we discovered this town in the nineties, our favoured Alsatian city. The one were we like to stay especially in December at the time of the Christmas markets.
Indeed our preference goes to Colmar a "family sized" town much safer than Strasbourg which holds the sad record in France to have been the first to see burning cars at New Year's Eve.
Furthermore we always preferred the Christmas markets of the Alsace to those of Germany.
There is the linguistic proximity; but more, we much like the architectural style of Colmar, the many typical houses and a small river, the good atmosphere, the Alsatian food (in our opinion better than that of its German neighbour) and then the excellent white wines.
There is also the fact that each shop window in Colmar, especially at the time of the Christmas Markets, is an invitation to gourmandise. And I am a gourmet-gourmand.
All this explains that in Colmar I don't visit museums (my usual task here on VT) but walk in the streets and look at the houses and at the shops. So none of my usual long (and boring) tips on museums here, but tips about food and wine.
