Daytrip to Colmar (France)

It was a week of gloomy weather and constant rain after which a Sunny Saturday was a welcome change. I hopped into my car and drove to the nearby medieval town of Colmar. It temperature was amazing at 30 degrees what more could I ask for. It’s 65 kms from Basel (Switzerland) a quick hour drive and I reached in
no time. The sky was shining which lured me to click all of what I could capture. 
Colmar is the third largest commune of the Alsace region in the north-eastern France. The town is situated along the Alsatian Wine Route and considers itself to be the ‘capital of Alsatian wine’. The city is renowned for its well preserved old time, its numerous architectural landmarks and its museums. The houses are made of wood or bricks. 
Without much ado I leave you with my clicks. 
Nature at its best

The cacti
Outside the museum
All balconies and windows were beautiful
The sound of music – the instrument is Alphorn

Like the didgeridoo, the Indian bamboo or wooden trumpet
and the African horn, the alphorn is one of the original wooden wind instruments. The alphorn in Switzerland was first documented in the mid-16th 
century by natural scientist Conrad Gesner.
