    The Beautiful City of Colmar

    August 31, 2017 in France ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    The day was spent riding to the town of Colmar and back again. The MS Andante remained moored at Breisach while we cycled. Maggie and I had previously visited Colmar on an earlier trip to France and immediately fell in love with the place. The combination of medieval, half timbered buildings and flower lined canals is the stuff of postcards.

    We spent some time riding and walking around the centre of the town and discovered that the city was just as beautiful as we remembered it to be. Many of the buildings are adorned with collections of flowers, hearts, chairs and just about anything else they could find. Each building is painted a different bright pastel shade and the combined effect is breathtaking. The bridges are also a work of art, some almost completely covered with floral arrangements. This city must certainly rank among the most amazing cities I have ever visited.
