With the presence of its Vosges mountains, the Haut-Rhin is a wonderful destination to enjoy the joys of nature and the mountains. Renowned for its prestigious museums, this department is also famous for its charming villages, colourful and abundantly flowered, so conducive to strolling. It is also the ideal place to taste famous wines and enjoy excellent Alsatian dishes. The Haut-Rhin, due to its somewhat extreme climate, has few attractions outside its 2 main cities: Colmar and Mulhouse. Colmar the Alsatian immediately seduces her with the beauty of its old centre, preserved as a setting for a historical film! This small town is a jewel to be discovered by miniature train, horse-drawn carriage, boat, bicycle and on foot. By taking his time. The old Colmar, structured around the Gothic church of Saint-Martin (13th century) with its cobbled streets, lined with medieval half-timbered or early Renaissance buildings, bathed in canals, flowered in summer, illuminated in winter, is a delight. As for Mulhouse, an industrial city par excellence and a historic city, its heritage has been intelligently highlighted thanks to prestigious museums, making it the leading centre for technical museums in Europe. As for its historical and heritage dimension, Mulhouse's charm is concentrated in its city centre: best discovered by the Old Mulhouse trail
