Posing with a rooster in La Petite Venise, Colmar

I have to admit, it is a strange title but the picture of Kristel with the rooster and the flowers was so attractive that I had to mention it. La Petite Venise in Colmar is an area around the water with small bridges and traditional houses. There are no gondolas like in Venice but you can also take a boat trip. We were lucky that the weather was fine so that we could take some flower pictures in the sun. I don’t know how good it is but the location of the Romantik Hotel can not be better. Maybe an idea if you want to visit Colmar.

Ik moet toegeven dat het een vreemde titel is maar de foto van Kristel met de haan en de bloemen was zo aantrekkelijk dat ik het moest vermelden. La Petite Venise in Colmar is een gebied aan het water met kleine brugjes en traditionele huizen. Er zijn geen gondels zoals in Venetië maar je kan er toch een boottochtje maken. Gelukkig was het mooi weer waardoor we goede belichting hadden om foto’s van bloemen te maken. We weten niets over de kwaliteit van het Romantik hotel maar de locatie is zeker top. Misschien een idee voor een bezoek aan Colmar..

  1. Das ist eine sehr schöne Altstadt, tolle Fachwerkhäuser und wunderschöne Blütenfotos. Ich finde den Blauregen besonders schön. Bei mir im Garten ist er leider in diesem Jahr erfroren....
    Liebe Grüße, Karin
