- Get caught in Mulhouse’s escape game
1. Visit the Alsace Eco-Museum♡
For a long time, I didn’t really understand what this place outside Mulhouse was. This summer, I finally solved the mystery and brought it to visit my parents. This’Alsace Eco Museum In my opinion it is an iEssential for traditional lovers Completed! Its large natural park brings together half-timbered houses from the past few centuries, which were saved from demolishing and restored by the association. They come from different places in Alsace.But we also visit Mills, brick houses, towers of the medieval walls of Mulhouse And other curiosities!In fact, for the Swiss, this is a kind of mini Ballenberg If you know it 😉
Interest is we can Enter all these housesTherefore, we admire the staged presentation Transactions in previous years Or the old life. Sometimes with entertainment! We saw a demonstration by a ceramist, a fashion designer explained how traditional Alsatian headdresses were folded, or in a square, young people used Vosges breed cattle (brilliant beasts) or Franches-Mountains Horses show agricultural traction. There are also different farm animals. We had a great day there and I really recommend this experience. Most importantly, it’s worth taking some time, and spending a day’s time.
convenient: At the Ecomusée d’Alsace site, there are some things to eat, but you can also have a picnic because there are big benches.Otherwise, the boat trip on the river will be completed soon, so start as early as possible and don’t stay on the pier like me, snuff.
Currently, we are hiding in the house-but not in the park!
2. Take an electric boat on the Mulhouse Canal
A very good experience to calm down behind the steering wheel of a ship full of personality is to do Take a boat trip on the canals of Mulhouse. Like last summer, it’s possible this summer Hire one of the old-fashioned electric boats So chic Take a tour. The places visited this year are more extensive and better! Maybe you will see my friend nutria and some ducks while sailing.
I really like this concept, I really liked my little walk last year (See it on Instagram!).
The departure point is the Museum of Impressions on Etoffes (Museum of Impressions on Etoffes) (Not to be missed elsewhere). You can book a slot by phone and have a boat with 4 or 6 positions. The only downside is that it’s a shame to encounter trash floating besides ducks…
3. Take a walk in Reiberg (guided or alone)
My third suggestion is classic: Take a walk in Reiberg. This beautiful Mulhouse district on the hill above the station is worth a visit, there are many luxury houses of different styles! In summer, a hundred flowers bloom and it is beautiful. I leave the suitcase in the corner, I like to explore it, get lost in its climbing alleys, to the reservoir park, and then to the beautiful park (with scenery) not far from the botanical garden. You can push to the small vineyard park, where there is a beautiful sunset over the Vosges Mountains. Follow Rebberg circuit For example, or take a random stroll to experience the taste of the neighborhood…
In order to put this extraordinary neighborhood in a perspective, a Visit to Bas-Rebberg and the Tourist Office It’s another cool idea. We know which industrialist built which manor and why there are some English half-timbered houses in the middle of Alsace!
The disadvantage is that there are many of these guides, ready to move in groups.The best thing is to come back alone and taste the tranquility of the place I found And follow signs such as “Sentier Belvédère”
4. Explore the street art of Mulhouse
You already know wall., The murals in the center of the city change regularly under the brushstrokes of different artists? It is located opposite the cafe Le Temps d’une Pause, rue de la Moselle.And you have found 24 avatar mailboxes C215? Admire more than Street art In Mulhouse, you must go to Quai des Pêcheurs for a small tour to see the creativity of graffiti artists, because this time the canvas was made from the facade of an abandoned factory. Do you still want? Graffitipolis takes over the parking lot Kimpolis. (I have to find out!)

5. Play escape games in Mulhouse
This Mystery night de Mulhouse is a well-known great challenge for game lovers. Since it didn’t happen, because of Covid, it was replaced by an escape game made with friends. Sorry, escape game! Theme: “Back to the 80s”. And it is strongly recommended to come in disguise. It promises! My friend and I booked my meeting.
