Is Colmar in France worth a visit?
You may have come across Colmar, a small town in France with almost 70,000 inhabitants when you were googling for “fairy tale towns,” “Christmas in Europe,” or perhaps “wine” or seen a pretty picture of it on Instagram. If you’re not doing a road trip – from Germany to Paris for example – you will have to go out of your way to see it, so – is it worth it?
I would say yes, if you’ve never been to a so-called fairy tale town with timbered houses. Yes, if you want to go there for Christmas or a romantic getaway. If you’re close by, it’s worth to check it out, too, but only for a day or two. However, it’s not worth it if you want to avoid touristy places because when I went there I definitely saw more tourists than residents. As for a fairy tale town and a place to spend Christmas at, Rothenburg in Germany is a better choice for architecture and attractions, but also here you’ll run into a lot of tourists.
