Imagine my surprise today when the taxi dropped me near my hotel in Colmar and had to stop at a barricade at the end of the street! Street closure due to a small Easter/Spring market! The old city is decorated with flowers and bunnies and Easter eggs! There are 2 small market areas with what I think are likely the small chalets used for the winter market set up. Some vendors are focused on springy themes, others are what you might find at any craft fair.
Still, it was a fun surprise! The sun is shining and everyone seems happy to be outside enjoying themselves.
According to the posters it runs from April 8 to May 1. There were apparently some special concerts last week in the run up to Easter if anyone is planning a trip next Spring. They are not as extensive as what I imagine the Christmas Markets are but they add a festive feeling!
