City/town information

visit "petite Venise" in Colmar! You are in a wine-city but yet... stop by at the "Brasserie du Grillen" in der 21 Rue des Jardins in Colmar and try the Mosaic beer! If it is a hot summer day an alternative to a cool Grillen beer might be a swim at the "base nautique de Colmar-Houssen, we call it "Colmar beach".

If you take the "short-cut" via Fessenheim it is only 59km by car (trust me, there is a bridge and it is open for cars even if your navigation system will try to guide you via Mulhouse). After the city-tour try the old student´s favourite St. Valentin in the Valentinstr. 100 in 79100 Freiburg. It is in the forest a bit out of town but worth the detour.

Mulhouse is much better than its reputation. Our favorite is the market on a Saturday morning where you have to try the oysters (with or without Crémant). On a rainy day the incredible collection of cars in the www.citedelautomobile.com is a must.

On a hot day you have to try the "Rheinschwimmen" which has a long tradition in Basel. On a rainy day please do not miss the incredible www.fondationbeyeler.ch ! And on the way back some fresh food at very decent prices in the farm restaurant www.fuenfschilling.de

Food scene

For us by far the best restaurant in town. The lunch menu at 20EUR (2021) is incredible value for money.

Do not necessarily select a restaurant in high-priced Colmar downtown. For a real Michelin-star-Alsace menu please try the incredible "Nouvelle Auberge". Easy-going atmosphere as you do not always find it in Michelin rated restaurant.

When you like hiking and biking in the Vosges mountains any ferme auberge is worth a visit. But the terrasse and the food in the ferme auberge Uff Rain is outstanding. Please take a reservation well in advance !

www.mure.com Thomas and Véronique Muré are making some of the finest Crémants in the Alsace - worth exploring the "better ones" on site rather than buying a standard bottle in the local supermarket.

Sightseeing

The tasting room is just next door, we recommend to book a tour. Interesting insights in the wine-making in the Alsace.

Very nice place for some local wine-tasting, especially when you are looking for ecological (Demeter) wines.

Albert-Schweitzer is from the Alsace. From Kaysersberg. Today a quite touristic little town but worth a visit!

Not a place we would recommend if it wasn´t for the supermarket "Le Grand Frais" https://www.grandfrais.com . A chain that is well-known in France in the meantime. If you are not French and/or you do not know Le Grand Frais you should see this "different" supermarket.

Neighborhoods

We would not ask you to drive to La Bresse if it wasn´t for the www.bol-d-air.fr which is great fun for kids and "older kids". Especially flying over the valley at more than 100km/h on a cable. Many slopes through the Vosges to get there but a nice road partly on the "route de crêtes".

During the season of "asparagus" (May/June) do not miss the farm of Haenni https://www.asperge-haenni.fr in order to try some white asparagus with a local white wine on your terrasse at home.
