From Colmar: 3 Villages in France, Germany, and Switzerland

1. From Colmar: 3 Villages in France, Germany, and Switzerland

Your 3-country adventure begins with pickup from your accommodation in Colmar. On your way to Germany, you’ll pass by the by the fortified village of Neuf-Brisach, a UNESCO world heritage site dating back to the late 17th century. From there, you'll drive to Germany and visit Freiburg, one of the treasures of German state Baden-Württemberg. Amble through the streets that seem ripped straight from a fairytale, taking note of the channels of water that runs right alongside sidewalks. Afterwards, you'll pass through another border bound for Basel in Switzerland. Divided in 2 parts by the Rhine river, the city has much to offer, with its picturesque bridges, narrow, winding alleyways, and stunning cathedrals. Wandering through the medieval town of Great Basel, look for the unique cultural aspects of the city that differentiate it from other Swiss towns. Your day trip ends in perhaps the most charming and beautiful village in France: Eguisheim. Situated just south of Colmar, the town runs in concentric circles around a central plaza. With tightly packed antique houses painted in brightly-colored hues, quaint shops, and a medieval castle, there are few villages in the world that so truly harken back to another age. After your border-crossing adventure is over, you’ll return to your accommodation in Colmar.

Great tour. Our guide picked us up at our hotel promptly at the appointed time and we spent a full day visiting the three villages (French, German and Swiss). Didier, our guide, was wonderful. Very knowledgeable. Easy to talk to. Good guy. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with him, especially a delicious lunch of German food and beer in Freiburg. I would recommend this trip and give high marks to Didier.

Our guide Didier found the sweet spot between feeding us information and giving us time for photo ops. Unlike other guides, he made the effort to accompany us to the various sights instead of dumping us somewhere and asking us to meet in X minutes. He constantly checked if we understood his accent (we had no issues with it), and he came across as earnest and friendly.

Good choice of small cities and towns to visit. All close by. At most 40 minutes by car from one to the other. Eguisheim is 5-10 minutes from Colmar.

Too cool A rewarding adventure Didier a guide too nice To do without hesitation it was MAGIC
