Colmar

Getting around in Colmar

We will be in Colmar for a very short period of time; perhaps 6 hours. What is the best way to make the most of our time?

I was in Colmar two weeks ago. Six hours is plenty of time to visit the whole city which is not that large. Go first to the Tourist office, they will give you a city map. Park your car and walk!

Colmar is a very walkable town and very pretty. Do take a boat ride [well sort of punt/canoe] which takes about an hour and you get the tickets in the bar beside the canal. There were plenty of nice bakers - and plenty of restaurants - sorry can't recommend one. Have fun. Plenty of nice little villages outside Colmar too - do beware if you're driving of the new German emission policy which certain towns require you to get your car fitted with a sticker otherwise you cop multiple fines - there are some towns near Colmar, and the list seems to be constantly extending.

I know this is an older thread but i wanted to add something.

The TRACE [Colmar transportation] website shows you just one small 225x225 pixel square of the bus map at a time. THis URL displays the entire map in a browser window:

What exactly does it mean re the German emission policy + getting a special sticker for one's car?
