Mulhouse

RO: Da, ce-i drept, Colmar e cea mai frumoasa piata de Craciun pe care am vazut-o vreodata. Si cica Eguisheim, un satuc din apropiere, ar fi si mai si, pe acelasi tipar de dragalasenie, cu aceleasi cladiri cu barne de lemn si aceleasi decoratiuni turbate si colorate pe timp de iarna. Daaaaar, daca ar fi sa zicem cat se poate de sincer care dintre toate targurile alsaciene ne-a picat la suflet, ei bine, am alege Mulhouse. Micut si cochet, intim si dichisit, si numai bine gatit de sarbatoare in fiecare an cu o “toala” noua. Pai da, pentru ca Mulhouse e Nirvana textilelor si materialelor in Alsacia, si nu se putea ca targul de Craciun sa nu aiba an de an un material-vedeta care sa imbrace tot orasul. De la casutele de lemn din piata de Craciun pana la catedrala din Place de la Reunion, de la paharele de “vin chaud” pana la fetele de masa de la restaurante. Peste tot acelasi desen si acelasi material. Paradisul oricarui obsedat de textile! A, si apropo, cica piata de Craciun din Mulhouse ar fi renumita  ca fiind cea mai colorata si mai vesela din toata Franta! Si-n plus de asta, o roata gigant taman in mijlocul casutelor de lemn, cat sa fie atmosfera de poveste si mai evidenta. Asa ca da, dam dragul de Colmar pe o vizita rapida prin Mulhouse, un pahar de vin fiert si o tarta flambata, o daaaa, o tarta flambata cu branza si ciuperci!

EN: To be honest, Colmar is by far the most beautiful Christmas market we’ve ever seen so far! And some might say that Eguisheim, a nearby village, is even better, on the same loveliness-pattern, with the same timbered buildings and the same colorful decorations during wintertime. Buuuuut, if we were to honestly say which of all the Alsace’s Christmas markets we enjoyed the most, oh well, we would say Mulhouse. Tiny and saucy, cosy and fancy and perfectly dressed-up each year with a new “coat”. Well yes, because Mulhouse is the Textile and Fabric Nirvana in Alsace and it was just impossible not to have a different start-fabric to cover the entire city. From the wooden huts in the Christmas Market to the cathedral in Place de la Reunion, from the glasses of “vin chaud” to the table cloths at the restaurants. everywhere the same pattern and the same fabric. A Paradise for each textile obsessed person! Ah, and by the way, the Mulhouse Christmas market is supposedly renowned as being the most colorful and cheerful one in the whole Alsace! And on top of that, there’s a huge wheel in the center of the wooden huts, so that the fairy-tale atmosphere to be even more obvious. So yes, we’re giving the cute Colmar for a short visit in Mulhouse, a glass of mulled wine and a buckled tart, oh yeeees, a tarte flambee with cheese and mushrooms!
