Our first stop on the way down to Colmar, was in Obernai, where we had a light lunch. It was an enchanting little village, with lots of shops and restaurants and colorful half timbered houses. More than enough to entertain you for an afternoon of perusing. From there we continued down the Route des Vins to Ribeauvillé, where we took the little tourist train through the village
We stopped in a few shops, then headed on towards Colmar. We walked around in Colmar's "Petit Venise" Neighborhood and got a front row seat along the canal for an aperitif (aka more wine!).
Tarte Flambée, which is like an Alsatian pizza topped with créme fraîche, lardons (bacon) & thinly sliced onions and sooooo tasty.
The next day we headed to Riquewihr, which was probably the cutest of the villages. This was the third of the villages I wanted to stop in. And I have to say, each one was cuter than the next. We walked through the village for a bit. Seriously cute, right? However, with cute, comes the tourists.
here to see the crépes we made!
