Do you know the definition of fast? No, not Formula 1 but the TGVs in France! Even if Colmar is almost 700Km away from Paris, a one day trip is totally doable as it takes about two hours to get there.
What makes Colmar so special are the cute, tiny houses with a unique architectural style, painted in pastel colors. Even though the old city is quite small, there are many activities you can do: from eating traditional crepes to renting a boat and enjoying the views!
However, wandering the streets was definitely my favorite activity! This is the best way to discover not only tiny shops with delicious chocolate or handmade soap but also incredible houses that seem to be drawn out of a fairy tale.
I must admit that I have only visited Colmar and Paris in France but this cute city is in my top 5 cities visited in Europe! Some say Colmar is the most beautiful city in Alsace but you should definitely not listen to others and go check it yourself!
