Yesterday we visited the Christmas market in Colmar (Alsace, France). That was soooo beautiful! The old city of Colmar looks like a fairy tale! I want to share my photos with you ... hope you'll like it.

Thank you for sharing! I would love to be there. We have a town called Colmar in Pennsylvania. Now I know where the name came from.

Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I would love to come back to France and Germany someday. I spent 2 years in Germany - wish I knew then what I know now. I do remember going to a ChristKindle Market in Mainz. Wish I could go back.

Oh wie schön, da kommt ja richtig Weihnachtsstimmung auf :)

Beautiful, I haven't even made it to the christmas market in my home town. I'm lacking christmas mood but seeing your wonderful pictures triggers a few christmassy feelings.

Thanks. I just learned today that Alsace (and more in Strassburg) is where the idea of the Christmas tree started -- though it was very different than todays trees and glitter.

I went to Colmar many years ago. It was February and there was snow on the ground, it was a magical place then. I would love to go back, but there is not really much chance of that happening.

We travelled through the Vosges mountains from Strasbourg via a little wine making village of Riquewihr where we had tasted some delicious wines. Many of the Alsace towns and villages are so pretty with their black and white half timbered buildings.
