A Fairytale Weekend...

...at least by the ambiance and architecture. A few images from our weekend in Alsace where yes, the houses do look like they are hiding any number of Snow White's relatives and sidekick dwarves.

Unfortunately I don't have as many photos as I would have liked and this for two reasons. The first, we visited Alsace during the Christmas Market season and I would have a difficult time explaining to you how many other people had the same idea. We should have expected it. We DID expect it! But maybe not to the extent we should have because oh the crowds! Wall to wall people made picture taking slightly difficult. But on the upside, it did keep us a bit warmer in the somewhat frigid temperatures, which is the second reaon for the lack of photos... hands were too cold to function.

But despite the cold and crowds, it was a lovely weekend and I discovered a place that definitely deserves another visit, though perhaps in a warmer, less crowded season!

I totally agree with you: Fairytale houses.

You'll never find Colmar with few people!! We visited it (+ Riquewhir, Kaysersberg and Eguisheim)in early September 2010. Excellent weather!
