Colmar Christmas Markets

In December last year I went to Colmar to see the Christmas markets with my friend Arlene, we drove there from Zurich which takes just under 2 hours. It was a Sunday so the town was extremely busy but we managed to get a parking space.

There were many different markets all over the town so we wandered around them all. The town is very very picturesque with lovely buildings, and then with all the Christmas decorations it looked even more lovely. Colmar also has lots of canals and is sometimes know as "little Venice" which you can see in some of the photos.

We stopped for some mulled wine and eventually queued up for the typical food from the Alsace tarte flambee. The Christmas markets had all the usual stuff to buy, toys, candles, lights and much more.

We did have trouble finding a cafe in the town centre, all the restaurants were busy as you would expect. Eventually we find one and had a yummy hot chocolate to keep us warm, by this time it started to get dark and we could see how the town looked all lit up. Sadly I could not upload those photos for some reason.

Colmar is a great place to visit in any season!
