I know that Colmar, France is considered the inspiration for Beauty and the Beast but the writers clearly didn’t pass through the Alsace town of Kaysersberg, France! I arrived in Colmar on a Saturday morning and immediately dropped my bags in my hotel before catching a bus for a magical day trip to Kaysersberg, France. Due to multiple recommendations and an overabundance of Pinterest photos, I knew that I had to visit this adorable town. While the bus schedule was a bit confusing (more about that below!), Kaysersberg was less than an hour bus ride from Colmar. If you’re ever in the Alsace region, you must take a day trip to this fairy tale town.
“Little Town, It’s a Quiet Village…” Did anyone else love Belle from Beauty and the Beast as much as me? Maybe it was because she had brown hair or maybe it was because she loved reading, but I think Belle is still one of my favorite Disney princesses. You can imagine my excitement when I finally got to visit Colmar, France – the inspiration behind the village in Beauty and the Beast! It’s been a bucket list item for me for many years and definitely did not disappoint. I had a perfect France weekend trip to Colmar and can’t wait to visit the region again. I might have gone a bit overboard with all the photographs but I just couldn’t help it! Everything was so beautiful.
