Mulhouse, also known as the "Bolwerk city", is an Alsatian town in the heart of Europe, just a few minutes away from
the German and Swiss borders. Mulhouse is thus seen as the crossroads of Europe, an additional asset that increases the excitement brought to the city and its reputation. The city came onto
the international scene through its museums. Spend a weekend visiting Mulhouse.
Don't miss: The Carnival of Mulhouse (February/March).
The main districts : Colline du Rebberg (Rebberg Hill - a host of houses), the "Cité ouvrière" (Worker city) and "cité Manifeste" (Manifesto city), and the "new district" located near the train station.
The Alsatian city has countless museums. Among them you will find the Cité de l'Automobile (automotive museum) and the Musée du chemin de fer (railway museum): the two prestigious museums forge the city's reputation around the world. One houses the Schlumpf brothers' collection with a total of 500 vehicles, and the other represents the largest collection of railway equipment in continental Europe. Two places worth visiting are the Museum of Fine Arts in Mulhouse, where paintings from the nineteenth century are on display, and the educational and recreational Bioscope Theme Park, dedicated to ecology.
The "Bolwerk city" houses a range of infrastructure devoted to culture: auditoriums (La Filature auditorium), theatres (La Sinne Theatre), the convention centre, the sports complex, etc., not to mention the Symphonic Opera and the National Opera of the Rhine, which have found their place in the city.
