Frederic Auguste Bartholdi is the sculptor responsible for the Liberty Enlightening the World statue better known as the Statue of Liberty.
The photo above is detail of the entry to the Musee Bartholdi in Colmar.
Statue by Bartholdi in the courtyard of the museum.
The architecture in Colmar is splendid.
A wonderful mix ofAlsatian homes and French and German Renaissance architecture greets you around every corner. The restored half-timbered houses take one back to another time.
Interesting mix of windows and shutters.
The canals of Colmar are alive with color from the pretty flower boxes.
Walking about Colmar is a treat for the senses.
Beauty on display around every corner.
Some of the store fronts were elaborately decorated with whimsical themes.
Bridge over the Lauch River in Colmar.
This area in Colmar is often referred to as "Little Venice".
Later we traveled by motor coach through the Black Forest.
Magnificent scenery of the countryside, forests and rolling hills. The curving roads provided lots of wow moments along the way. Unfortunately there were few opportunities from the motor coach to capture the beauty in photos.
We did make a stop at the world's largest cuckoo clock (above).
Here we were offered demonstrations making Black Forest Cake and cuckoo clocks as well as glass blowing.
This concluded our Rhine River cruise.
Perhaps I will share some photos from the ship next.
I hope you will join me.
