I really do not have enough words to describe this village. I’m thinking of ‘stunning, beautiful, fabulous, wonderful, delightful, pretty, awesome….’ and so many more. But actually, the only way to describe this beautiful place is in photos.
Colmar is located 42 miles (68 km) south-southwest of Strasbourg. If ever you are near, please do stop here. It is just simply one of the most beautiful villages in France. Picture perfect buildings, amazing architecture and the best time to visit would be….well any time. Because in summer the place is beautiful with pretty flowers everywhere and in winter you have Christmas decorations adorning many buildings.
Travelers from around the world have this destination on their travel bucket list and from the photos, it is easy to see why.
