colmar is incredible. it is situated right in the middle of france and germany and has lived through ten centuries of germanic reign and four centuries under france’s reign, and it’s one of the few cities that was not bombed during world war two. it’s crazy because while all the buildings are still intact, you can see bullets in the stone walls from machine guns.
