Planning a weekend in Mulhouse, the European capital of technical museums? Be sure make time for a visit to the Cite de l'Automobile to get a firsthand look at the Schlumpf Collection. At the Electropolis Museum, you will uncover the mysteries of electrical energy. The Cité du Train, the largest European railway museum, will delight locomotive enthusiasts. Before heading back to your 3-star Kyriad accommodation, a stroll through the historic center will allow you to discover Place de la Reunion, just a few steps from the old 16th-century city hall and its museum of prehistory.
If your stay in Mulhouse extends to a week, make the most of it by visiting city hall in full. Take time to admire the Klapperstein replica on the right side of the building – a “chatterbox stone”, representing a human head suspended from a chain, eyes bulging, and tongue waggling. Then explore the Protestant Temple Saint-Etienne or Mieg House and its bourgeois architecture. A fortified medieval city, Mulhouse also offers old fortifications to explore, after which you’ll surely want to extend your stay in the region to experience its cuisine. OurKyriad hotels in Colmar
, nicknamed Little Venice, are the next stop.
For a family trip to Mulhouse, set out on a quest for fun and entertainment. Kids will be fascinated by Nessel Tower and the Devil’s Tower, two surviving medieval towers once part of a long-gone castle. Looking instead to enjoy some nature? Bring the family to the Zoo and Botanical Park to admire deer, birds and even kangaroos! In the heart of the city, a long walk leads you to discover many murals, especially city hall’s optical illusion paintings. You'll end your days with meals replete with culinary specialties at your Kyriad hotel restaurant.
