Mulhouse, France

At a snail's pace

Departmental agency for information about housing in Mulhouse. The snail logo is not very reassuring. Are they trying to say something without really saying it? :)

Mulhouse France

Many buildings have painted images on them. I loved it!

Just one of many interesting windows I saw on our trip to Mulhouse.

Mulhouse

The tower is from the 14th century (I think).

Mulhouse reminded Vilay and I of Friburg, Germany because of the number of beautiful iron signs that are found on businesses.

Voila! The first leaves of Spring.


You can see Vilay’s pics here.

You can see Vilay’s post about Mulhouse here with more pics or go directly to our Flickr page (I still need to label the photos and organize them but have had my nose deeply planted in a book. So, I will get to the Flickr photos when said book is finished. Once I start a good book I can’t put it down. I will write a post about this book once I have finished it. It is a book that is easy to read but it makes you think about people and life. It is perfect for a social psychology major like myself or anyone for that matter.)

    J’aime beaucoup Mulhouse…avez-vous visite le Musee de l’Impression sur Etoffes, c’est unique!
    Faites-moi plaisir, allez faire un petit tour a ma sante, dans la bonne ville d’Ettlingen, juste au Nord de Baden-Baden (Ich hatte mein Herz verloren, dort!)
    Bonne journee a tous les Alsaciens, une des plus jolies provinces Francaises

    Je n’ai pas visité le Musee de l’Impression, pas encore. Vilay n’aime pas trop les musées. Mais, j’aime beaucoup visiter les musées! :)

    I used to teach English in Mulhouse–how fun to see pictures on your blog of places I recognize! It’s also interesting to see your positive spin on the city that I found mostly dreary and industrial, lacking the charm of so many other cites and towns of Alsace. But I was also generally a bit unhappy living there, so that’s colored my memories.

    Sarah,
    Mulhouse has a new tram and has been cleaning up the city alot. I saw it before when it wasn’t so nice, but now it has changed a great deal. The problem is that there is still a problem with crime there due to young kids. It will take time.
