Then it was back on the train for our trip to Colmar. This region has belonged to both France and Germany over the centuries and actually looks more German than French.
Our first stop was the art museum which holds the Isenheim Altar piece by Grunewald. The northern Renaissance piece is very famous was its use of color and its portrayal of Christ's death and resurrection.
