I took a lot of photos while in Alsace so, since I have them, I will share some. Alsace is very photogenic.
Almost every building in the villages we visited were decorated for Christmas. We did the southern half of what they call the Alasian Wine Trail and each place was special. We were there a week before all of the Christmas markets officially opened and there were still many tourists.
I guess this is sort of a rood screen. I thought it was very unusual, unlike many churches. The church was in Kayserville.
Alsatian costumes. I saw these models everywhere. The women used to wear a sort of giant black bow on their heads. I never did see one in person.
Another Christmas decoration. December 6th, Saint Nicolas Day, is huge in Alsace, which is what this figure represents. Gifts are given then and there are processions. I wish we could have seen it.
Just loved the architecture. Where are Hansel and Gretel?
I liked the clock and the little tower.
They are not afraid to use color in Alsace.
There is a huge musical tradition in the village of Ribeauville and a famous festival every September.
A free book exchange. I loved this display.
