On a sunny October day the narrow street of Colmar were very busy and we soon felt the need to take a break from the touristy sightseeing. So we crossed Boulevard du Champs de Mars and Place Rapp into the largest city park (which is still rather small), called Parc du Champs de Mars. A great spot for a picnic! We took a walk along the beautiful alleys lined with linden trees, offering lovely perspectives on the Bruat fountain and the impressive Préfecture building at the other end of the park.
In fact we enjoyed walking so much we went on to explore the other green areas of Colmar: the small Parc Méquillet along Rue Camille Shlumberger – ideal for children because it is totally enclosed and has a playground – and the lovely Parc du Château d’Eau further south where we had a look at the historic water tower, the St Martin’s Circle, the Court of Appeal and the Bartholdi Monument before returning to town for some more sightseeing.
