More about
After a spending spree, including Mulhouse fabrics, fabulous hats, gingerbread, model cars (Mulhouse is, after all, synonymous with the automotive industry) or glasses cleaning cloths (with Wesserling textile designs), you’re bound to feel a bit peckish.  So how about a cheese pretzel washed down with a nice glass of mulled wine? Or maybe a bowl of Munster cheese soup? Or is that a bit heavy? Ok then, a dozen oysters, how does that grab you?

  • Cross-border shopping


    One of the best things about border regions is having neighbours, as they also offer attractive products which we can’t find at home. So it makes sense to take advantage of a visit to Mulhouse to take a shopping trip to Basel or Freiburg im Breisgau. Or vice versa!
