  1. What an amazing trip (and some great places to stay)! A couple years ago we stayed in Strasbourg and ended up taking a day trip to Colmar. We loved it SO much! I definitely wish we had more time to explore in Colmar and Alsace in general. Definitely dreaming of getting back there one day. So charming!

  2. Thinking of doing Alsace Christmas markets this year. Was it hard to drive around the area? Is typically it snowy or icy during early Dec? I would like to end our trip in Prague. Any other favorite Christmas Market stops from Alsace to Prague?

    1. Hi Crystal! We have been in the Alsace Christmas markets in late November and before Christmas in December, and we haven’t run into any snow. However, when we did central Europe, including parts of Germany and the Czech Republic in mid December, we did run into snow.

      I would consider a trip from Alsace to Heidelberg (or Frankfurt) to Nuremberg to Prague, depending on how long you have. You could do that trip entirely via train or drive. The large highways will be clear and equipped to deal with the snow, but if you wanted to go to some of the smaller markets, it could be more difficult if you haven’t driven in snow. Either way, it would be a magical trip!

  3. Enjoyed your article. We love Alsace region, Strasbourg and, Really want to return for Christmas Markets and your piece made it a must. You captured the unique beauty of the area. Magical is an overused descriptor but it truly does apply to this area!
    Fantastic food everywhere, gorgeous architecture, welcoming people, surrounded by natural beauty!
