Medieval Colmar in the Alsace region is a favourite destination with tourists; it only takes 50 minutes by car to visit. Among the highlights are Little Venice, a section of the old medieval part of town that has many small canals, which make it look like a miniature version of its famous Italian counterpart. The Maison des Tetes (literally the House of the Heads) is a lovely Renaissance building that has an unusual decoration of painted faces. The Pfister House is entirely made from wood and is one of the oldest buildings in Colmar.

The Alsace region is not just famous for its fantastic white wines and lovely scenery: the pastries are to die for! Kugelhopf is one of the most famous delicatessen, a wonderfully light cake with raisins and the equally famous Flammekueche is reminiscent of pizza, but has its very distinct twist to the theme!
