Dolder Tower in Riquewihr
Some weeks ago a Polish colleague recommended us a small city near Colmar called Riquewihr, that he described as a gorgeous medieval city located in the mountains with an old walled center. Today we decided to head north into France to visit this place and we were able to corroborate this place is indeed one of the most beautiful town in the Alsatian region. We were reading that during WWII this was one the few places that was spared from destruction, since it was relatively hidden in a cul-de-sac, so there are many houses from the 15th century really well preserved. One of the perks of visiting this place is the route to get there, since you pass through several vinicole plantations and some other nice towns as well. In one of the towers surviving the original wall built by the Duke of Horburg in the 13th century, you can visit a museum with the history of the city. Its called Dolder in Alstatian, meaning the highest point, where I took this picture.
