    Bonjour et au revoir France

    August 27 in France ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Bevor es zurück geht noch mal schnell unseren F-Nachbarn einen Besuch abstatten. Schon praktisch so ein Dreiländer-Eck.
    Heute Abend geht's dann zurück nach Hamburg.

    A rainy start

    September 5, 2016 in France ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    So Illy and Dave opted for public transport options today...
    For the rest of us...we spent first part of the day riding in a rainy drizzle alongside the canal (which runs parallel to the river). Lots of birdlife on the canal (and apparently some large rodents (rat/wombat)- which I didn't see)
    Not being a fan of being wet and cold I didn't find the morning section that enjoyable but others in the group quite liked it
    Easy (flat) riding today

    Mülhausen in Frankreich

    September 23 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Ausgeschlafen ging es los ins ca. 30km entfernte Mülhausen. Auf dem Weg dorthin gab es leckeres französisches Frühstück in einem kleinen Restaurant. Anschließend sind wir ein bisschen durch die kleine französische Stadt und entlang am Rhein-Kanal geschlendert. Die Innenstadt war ganz nett, aber hatte jetzt auch nicht allzu viel zu bieten, sodass wir nach einem Kaffee und zwei-stündigem Stadtbummel wieder zurück nach Basel gefahren sind....Read more

    Cité de l'Automobile - Mulhouse

    July 24 in France ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    Just over the border into France, an hour from our base in the Black Forest, was a special car museum that Chris had been keen to visit for some time.

    The Cité de l'Automobile is a striking glass and steel building that is home to over 400 rare and classic vehicles. The origins of the collection goes back to when local wool merchants, the brothers Schlumpf, developed a passion for Bugatti cars. Over many years, this passion became a compulsive obsession, which resulted in the largest collection of classic Bugatti cars, under one roof, in the world. An extraordinary feature of this collection was that it was, despite its size, unknown outside of the family and the full-time mechanics and craftsmen that were employed to maintain and restore all the cars to full running order. It was only after their huge business collapsed in the 1970's, and they fled to Switzerland, that the collection was discovered to the amazement of car enthusiasts worldwide. The collection is now open to the public and has been expanded to include some of the earliest 'cars' dating from 1885 through to the latest Bugatti hypercar.

    We spent all day there listening to our audioguide as we wandered around but it wasn't long enough to take it all in and so we shall have to come back another time.

    Day 450: Mulhouse Car Museum

    May 10, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Spent a lot of today at a car museum in the city of Mulhouse, about 30 minutes south of Colmar. I'd tried to make it here when we were in Strasbourg last year, but the train fares there were just too expensive.

    The museum holds a large collection of classic cars - mostly pre WW2 European cars. Lots of Bugattis, but plenty of other marques that I'd never heard of! Consolidation really did a number on the car industry. Shandos was bored within about an hour but I spent quite a bit longer just wandering and appreciating, particularly the really old 1900s and 1910s coaches. You can really see how things like the wild west stagecoach evolved into the modern bus, and they were just so elegant as well. Anyway.

    It was wet and windy outside so we just headed back to our apartment in the mid-afternoon, and spent the rest of the day working.
