Colmar, Alsace

One of the advantages of Basel is its proximity to both the French and German borders. So two weeks ago we went with K. to visit Colmar in the Alsace region of France. We had a really good time walking around the narrow streets of the old city, I tasted finally the famous "Tarte Flambee" (not recommended if you don't like or tolerate bacon) and I visited the Unterlinder Museeum, that displays the famous "Retable d'Issenheim". If you are visiting the Alsatian region this city is definitively a recommended spot. I took this picture in a pictoresque area of the city crossed by canals, called "little venice".
