Wissembourg in Alsace, France!
In the north of Alsace, between vineyards and forests, Wissembourg reveals a typical and authentic Alsace with must-see tourist sites. The town boasts over 400 buildings erected since the 11th century, demonstrating its historical and architectural richness. The Abbey Church of Saints Peter and Paul is the second largest Gothic building in Alsace, after Strasbourg Cathedral. It is known for its impressive 11-meter-high fresco of St. Christopher, the most enormous painted human figure in France, as well as its old stained glass windows and 11th-century Romanesque chapel. The Westercamp Museum of local history occupies one of the many half-timbered winegrowers' houses that make the town look so charming.
The natural environment of this small town at the foot of the Vosges is also very appealing, with the flowery banks of the River Lauter offering a lovely walk. You can also walk around the fortifications to admire the gardens and flower-adorned houses. After your stroll, be sure to stop by one of the town's charming tearooms.
The abbey of Saint-Pierre-et-Paul owns the largest fresco of France. The Eleven meters high Saint Christopher of the fourteenth century, is painted on one of the walls of the transept. Guided tour on request all year. (by visit.alsace.com)

How do the residence who live in such a beautiful place feel?
When I travel, I don't want to miss even the smallest details. So I'm busy looking around. The speed of pressing the buttons on the camera also increases. But when I look around and find an impressive point, I get quiet without realizing it. And people who can focus on themselves and take good care of themselves will eventually discover that they can give good energy to others as well.
The pretty houses across the canal and the bridges in the middle make visitors instinctively recognize that this is a good photo spot, as if in a small Venice.
The scenery that filled my mind during the long period of pandemic with shutdown was European open-air cafes.
You can see a part of a small canal, and in the distance you can see the terrace pots with geraniums.
When I go to touristic places, I like to take pictures of little things. The beautiful colors of ordinary houses, beautiful geraniums blooming on the terrace, buildings where you can see the beautiful clouds in the sky, and unusually shaped mailboxes, these trivial daily routines often give me a lot of inspiration.
