Caption

The Lauch, coming down from the Vosges mountains, flows through the city of Colmar and there later flows into the Ill.

Look out for the fish in the water!

A sign on the bridge bears the inscription: "The bridge over the Lauch marks the start of the Krutenau, a community united around the memory of Martin Stockmeyer: this boatman, nicknamed the "Hercules of Colmar", was in February 1791 largely responsible for the victory of the Revolution in the face of an uprising aristocratic party. The road owes its current name to the marshal Turenne, who used it in 1674 for his solemn entry at the head of 800 cavalrymen. The picturesque line of old houses, which are accessible by small boat, is the reason for the name Little Venice."
