Piste and cross country skiing are about 15kms away in La Schlucht,
and there are many well marked hiking routes all around us. In
Munster there is a swimming pool and tennis courts.
Colmar (20kms) has good shopping and many fine restaurants, lovely
buildings and a canal district known as Little Venice. It is a sheer
delight with a network of beautifully preserved medieval streets in
its centre. It is a major centre for the Alsace wine trade and has
one of France's leading art museum, the Unterlinden museum which is
said to attract more visitors than the Louvre.
Sélestat (40 kms) has many old houses and a library containing rare
manuscripts and early printed works. Close by is the massive medieval
château of Haut-Koenigsbourg standing proudly on top of a 2,500ft
hill, with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside.
There are literally scores of wine villages, where you can visit
vineyards and taste, but they say that if you haven't seen Riquewihr,
you haven't seen Alsace. It has hardly changed over the centuries
with its half timbered houses, fine carvings, statues and churches,
and even the signs have been there for three hundred years.
Obernai is a beautiful little town well worth visiting, again with
many half timbered houses. It has a covered corn exchange, a six-
bucket well, the 13th century Kappelturn tower, a fine town hall and
many good views and walks along the old village walls.
