Small museum - packed with artefacts from the fighting in the Colmar Pocket. They have a number of well equipped mannequins showing various US and French uniforms, as well as Heer, Luftwaffe and SS troops.

This is part of a Viking excursion tour (ask for Cindy; she's exceptional) to the site of the Colmar Pocket battle in January 1945. The museum is small and in a basement, but shows the humanity of the combatants exceptionally well. It's made up of...More
