Colmar is a place worth seeing. Its half-timbered homes, historic cathedrals, and educational museums will transport you to the medieval Alsace Region in a wonderful way. It's lovely maintained old town is ideal for date nights or alone exploration. However, it's not only the half-timbered dwellings, beautiful fountains, courtyards, and canals. Colmar and France's Alsace area is renowned for its lovely, time-travelling ancient town.
