From your holiday rental in Colmar in the Odalys Apart'hotel La Rose d'Argent you will be in an ideal spot to visit the most typical of Alsatian towns in Alsace. Near the borders of Germany and Switzerland, Colmar, with its small thatched houses with unique facades lining the peaceful canals, will charm you with its fairytale atmosphere and take you on a journey to somewhere between the Middle Ages and the twentieth century. The town center has become a large pedestrian area that visitors from around the world come to see. Whichever way you turn, flowery streets packed with small shops selling gifts or local gastronomic specialties attract the eye. Between Alsatian folklore (peasant traditions, Christmas markets, etc ...) and the city's light show (from May to September each year), Colmar is not just a city in Alsace, it is also "the most beautiful city in the world" as quoted by Georges Duhamel in 1937. Bon voyage!
