Our tour guide was phenomenal in describing the details of the battles in the area during the winter of 1945. The Audie Murphy monument is well off the main road but is perfect to show the area of the fighting.

Audie Murphy was just a teen-ager when he staged his incredible one-man stand in this part of Colmar. He was the most decorated combat US soldier, having received every military combat award for valor. Our tour guide, Josef, had us mesmerized with the story and...More

We put the address into our GPS and had no trouble finding the monument. The region today is so beautiful and peaceful with rolling hills, farms and vineyards. We stopped in front of the city hall to watch two storks tending their giant nest. We...More
