Alsace / Colmar in April

Hi,

We will be going to France in April for 2 weeks. We were told to stay near Paris and to avoid Alsace because we would be too early in the season, there would be no flowers and Colmar would not look very nice.

Do you share this opinion or do you think otherwise?

Thanks

Shali

Colmar will still look beautiful - it's true that there will be more flowers if you visit in the summer or even into September but it will have more of an effect if you have a sunny day instead of cloudy/rain. End of April or early May the sun is not guaranteed of course but there's still plenty to do and see.

During the spring there are many trees and bushes in bloom even if the window boxes are not so full of Geraniums.

Are you kidding? In April Europe is in bloom. Don't worry about it. Besides, France rates its towns on flowers, and Colmar likely packs a punch in springtime.

We returned from Colmar two days ago (03/18/08) and it was lovely. Granted, the thousands of window boxes had not yet been planted but the trees were in bud, the bulbs were peeking out, the storks were starting to build their HUGE nests on the roof tops...GO!

If you have time, make sure you see Strasbourg also- pure heaven... a cross between Venice & Salzburg, only bigger.

Have a blast!
