Colmar & Eguisheim

The next day we took one more stroll through the scenic streets of Colmar before hitting the road.

We had this view of the Colmar train station as we headed out of town.

Our destination was a small town very close to Colmar called Eguisheim - a town on the Alsace Wine Route - and is incredibly picturesque. We parked the car in a public lot and walked through the pedestrian only streets.

Hunger of course set in and we were delighted to find an outdoor cafe which again blessed us with the Alsatian pizza called Tarte Flambée. We had first tried this in Baden-Baden and loved this very thin pizza topped with onion and bits of bacon. This time we tried a version with mushrooms and we were equally delighted.

With our lunch behind us, we reluctantly left Eguisheim and got back on the highway. Next stop: Besançon.
