Last week I was In Switzerland. I have heard many good things about a small town in France, Colmar. So I planned a visit to there. I was staying in Basel and by train Colmar was about a 45 minutes commute.
It is a small town and as we visited it on a week day, it was very quiet. The weather was great, with a huge sun above our heads but the temperature around -5! Despite the cold, we started to walk towards the city centre. The city was exactly as I though it would be. Like a fairytale!
Bulidings so pretty, that at the first glance you get the feeling they are fake! They are made out of thick paper and they serve their purpose as a stage for a movie or a musical! I had to touch the wall of a building like this just to make sure it is real 🙂
The part of the old town is paved with beautiful small stones that fit in the whole enviroment giving an extra pinch of magic to the scenery! The presence of the river makes it even more attractive.
The best place in the town is the Little Venice. As you can see in the picture above, you can understand why! Picturesque houses with amazing and vivid colors next to the canal is the dream of every photographer for unforgettable pictures!
It took us around 2 hours to see the old town, but our pace was really a slow one! We stopped in every street to grab many photos, as we do not have places like this back in Greece
We bumped into a public market with local and traditional goodies like food, drinks and cutlery. Everything seemed very tasty and the prices were really good I can say!
By looking the following picture, I can only imagine how nice it would have been to spend your Christmas holidays here!
That’s it! We spend a lot of time to the Museum of Toys. My next post will be about that visit.
