Christmas market in Colmar

A large Christmas market is organized in Colmar every year. This market takes place in November and December and is located in the middle of the city center. The city was beautifully lit at that time and you seem to have stepped straight into a fairytale here. Everywhere you will find cozy market stalls selling all kinds of Christmas items and there is also a nice gastronomic market, where you can buy tasty Alsatian specialties. Fun events are organized and you can enjoy all kinds of activities for young and old.

Eguisheim just south of Colmar lies the village of Eguisheim and is also very nice to stroll through the streets. The village in Alsace is built in circles around a castle from the thirteenth century and thus has a very original shape. Unfortunately, only the chapel remains of the castle, but it is no less interesting for that. Eguisheim is completely surrounded by vineyards and it is there that the two best wines of Alsace are grown; the Eichberg and Pfersigberg

Eguisheim net ten zuiden van Colmar light het dorp Eguisheim en is ook heel leuk om door de straatjes te slenteren. Het dorp in de Elzas is in cirkels gebouwd rondom een kasteel uit de dertiende eeuw en heeft zo een zeer originele vorm. Van de burcht is helaas alleen de kapel nog over maar is daar niet minder interessant om. Eguisheim is geheel omringt door wijngaarden en daar worden de twee beste wijnen van de Elzas verbouwd; de Eichberg en Pfersigberg
