Various themes (gastronomy, family, cycling, well-being, unusual…), so that you can find activities according to your tastes in the blink of an eye without losing time.


Not focused on history: I give you some key points about the buildings you will see, but that’s it.


Very activity oriented, because I find that the best way to enjoy a region is to experience the very best things it has to offer!


Homemade with love: I designed this guide based on what I would have liked to have known when I first discovered the Colmar region.


It’s easy to organize your stay. A lot information is on my blog “My weekend in Alsace”, but I wrote this guide so you can plan your stay in no time!

"I discovered your blog following some research in September. I was able to organize our entire weekend in Colmar thanks to it. I wanted to thank you for all the work you put in, your blog is attractive, comprehensive and your opinions have influenced me a lot. So, thank you, and I can only encourage you to continue. Thank you very much. I am sure that without you and your blog, this stay would not have been as magical."


About the author

I’m a Breton woman who has fallen in love with my adopted region. I designed this guide after thinking about what I would have liked to have had when I first discovered Colmar several years ago. It was love at first sight. 🙂 After moving to Colmar in 2014, I settled with my husband in an Alsatian village near Strasbourg. Nevertheless, I regularly come back to Colmar and its surroundings, an area where I still have many friends. I love Alsace so much and the variety of landscapes and activities it offers that I dedicate a blog – “My Weekend in Alsace” — to help other people discover the region and organize their stay. On foot, by bike, on horseback or at the wheel of my Fiat 500, I like to explore the smallest corners of Alsace to find the best addresses and give recommendations, just like a good friend would!

In this guide, I give you all my best advice on where to eat, drink and what to see in Colmar and its surroundings, just as a good friend would!
