Wednesday Postcard: Colmar, France

Postmarked in 1967

Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features five pretty sights in Colmar, a commune in the Grand Est region in northeastern France.

Top row:

  • Maison Pfister (built in 1537; today it’s a wine, beer, and spirits store)

Bottom row:

Over the years, I have accumulated about two hundred postcards from around the world, which I’ve either purchased from my local antique shops or received from thoughtful jet-setting family and friends who know I collect them. When I travel, I also like to send myself a carte postale just for fun!

I hope these postcards will make you want to revisit a favorite vacation spot or to embark on a journey to the destination of your dreams! And if you’ve been to the destination featured, tell me about your experience there – I’d love to hear from you.

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, be safe and stay healthy!


  1. I’ve visited Colmar twice, both times for the Christmas holidays. Such a lovely and charming town, perhaps even more quaint than Strasbourg, its larger counterpart! Thanks for sharing the postcard, Darlene, and happy holidays!
