We live at Marckolsheim, a little town in Alsace (3600 people), on the border of Germany (5 minutes). Marckolsheim is located centrally in Alsace, 20 min to Colmar and 45 min to Stasbourg. The town is remarkable for its old fashioned reputation due to being on the border.
It is difficult to describe - you must see it!
Marcholsheim is equally situated at the gates of Ried, a region calm and tranquil which nestles between Ill, the main river of the Alsace plains and the Rhine. Ried is particularly well known for its reputation for remarkable natural beauty, close to flooding and Rhine forests, shelters the numerous plants and rare species, nowadays protected in the most parts. You can also see the most beautiful storks from Alsace. There are also many beartiful churches and chapels in the region, and not too far from us, for the those interested, there are also castral mounds and tumuli. You can go by bike or by foot on the numerous paths and circuits to discover it all.
The Alsacien vineyards and their famous wines are no more than 15 mins away. You can discover there a bunch of colourful towns, the famous half timbered homes, with colours, each more lively than the others. You can't leave without seeing them.
There are also other trips to take: The Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg, 30 minutes, the mountain of monkeys and the valley of eagles at the foot of the Chateau. The Eco-museum of Alsace is 40 min., the museum of Schlumpf cars Mulhouse, 40 minutes, the same as all the other technical museums which are the pride of the town of Mulhouse, without forgetting the zoo and botanical gardens.
The Vosges are the hills around which block the horizon to the west. The hilltop route allows you to discover magnificent views of the Alsace plains. The farms - auberges will open their doors to offer you meals 'marcaires' and incomparable tarte aux myrtilles des Vosges. In the valleys, you can't get away from the Alsacien cheese - but what cheese! Our munster.
Our proximity to the Rhine offers possibilities for beautiful trips by bike or by foot along the river (15 min by bike). Freiburg, the capital of the region of Bade-Wurtemberg in Germany, is hardly 30 minutes away. The mountainous region of the black forest, and all around, equally offers a number of possibilities for excursions. Even closer there is also, just the other side of the Rhine, the Kaiserstuhl which will surprise you. There is an ancient volcano some dozen square km, is particularly unique element of this area. From the delta emerges the vast plains of Rhineland, whose micro region has no other like it, you are astounded by it, and the magnificent vineyard countryside. Equally notable in Germany is the attraction of a grand amusement park in Rust ' Europa park', 20 minutes from home. You will also find a swimming place at Wyhl, the other side of the border, less than 10 minutes from us.
And what about Switzerland, you can go there in less than 1 hour. But be careful, you will be leaving the European union.
