Full description
Your 3-country adventure begins with pickup from your accommodation in Colmar. On your way to Germany, you’ll pass by the by the fortified village of Neuf-Brisach, a UNESCO world heritage site dating back to the late 17th century. From there, you'll drive to Germany and visit Freiburg, one of the treasures of German state Baden-Württemberg. Amble through the streets that seem ripped straight from a fairytale, taking note of the channels of water that runs right alongside sidewalks.

Afterwards, you'll pass through another border bound for Basel in Switzerland. Divided in 2 parts by the Rhine river, the city has much to offer, with its picturesque bridges, narrow, winding alleyways, and stunning cathedrals. Wandering through the medieval town of Great Basel, look for the unique cultural aspects of the city that differentiate it from other Swiss towns.

Your day trip ends in perhaps the most charming and beautiful village in France: Eguisheim. Situated just south of Colmar, the town runs in concentric circles around a central plaza. With tightly packed antique houses painted in brightly-colored hues, quaint shops, and a medieval castle, there are few villages in the world that so truly harken back to another age. After your border-crossing adventure is over, you’ll return to your accommodation in Colmar.
