How to leave Colmar, France for Strasbourg

by moovnon Online Now Jan 21, 2013 at 1:26 PM

We will be driving into Colmar, France from Italy. We plan to leave Colmar for Strasbourg to take the fast train to Paris. We are afraid of driving in to Strasbourg to find the train station and were hoping to take the train from Colmar to Strasbourg.

If we rent from Auto Europe, the drop off for the rental car is the Colmar Huessan Airport. Is there a bus at the airport that will take us back to the Colmar train station, or better yet, to Strasbourg? Any and all advice is appreciated.
Thanks,
Moovnon

    well I drive around there and the car is the best to travel and see up close.
    you can get good estimates from
    www.viamichelin.com
    route planner.

    Strasbourg is not bad, it has good roads and only if you get into the petite france you may find the street narrow. But then again Italy has them too ::)

    For the train from colmar to Strasbourg see france SNCF
    www.voyages-sncf.com, then train

    Auto Europe is very good they will also help with directions, been car brokers for years and years. The Colmar airport is small, mostly business, but you can contact this taxi company
    http://www.taxi-colmar.com/

    there are no buses from there. get to Colmar on taxi and then to Strasbourg by train.

    by the way this year is the 60 anniversary of the route du vin d'Alsace or the wine route of Alsace that passes by Colmar

    Welcome to Virtual Tourist. If you haven't already booked your car, you might want to think of using Europcar instead of Auto Europe. Europecar has a rental offic (return) at the Strasbourg TGV station. Then you could drive right up the A35 (an excellent road) and excit at the TGV station without having to even enter Strasbourg. europcar.com/car-rental-STRA...

    Just a thought. Can't help you with trains as we usually drive. You could call your car rental company and ask about transportation. They might have a shuttle back to Colmar.

    Good luck . . . and I hope you take the time to enjoy that part of France, one of our favorites.
