Sunday in Freiburg and Colmar!

Hi everyone! Yesterday Christophe and I spent the day at two Christmas Markets. The first in Freiburg, Germany and the second in Colmar! Since we are so close to the German border we decided to take a trip to Freiburg since I've never been there. The Christmas Market wasn't exceptionnal but I thought the city was beautiful so I took as many pictures as possible. It was fun being in Germany for a few hours. The streets of Freiburg all have this strange canal-ish system on the edge of the roads. It's really cool looking.

Since we finished the Freiburg Christmas market early, we decided to go to Colmar which was only a half hour away. Much more impressive! The decorations were beautiful and it was twice as big! Here are my pictures.

Hi,
since you were so close in Colmar, head a little further north to Strasbourg. There is a great website www.noel-strasbourg.com. The lights in the city centre are fantastic, go to the Quatre D'or, just off the cathederal.

Thanks for your comments everyone! I didn't get to see Strasbourg's Christmas market but I visited the city a few years ago and it's really pretty.
