Also situated near both Germany and Switzerland, between the Vosges and the Rhine, between Strasbourg and Mulhouse, the town of Colmar provides a view down the long lens of a thousand years of European history.

With close on 70,000 inhabitants, Colmar still has a charming « village in the countryside » feel to it. The wine capital of Alsace, Colmar symbolises the attachment to cultural values, know-how and traditions. It is one of the largest wine-producing communes with nearly 400 hectares of vineyards.
