Sightseeing route in Mulhouse


【City description】

It’s a city in the south of Strasbourg. Because it has been governed by Switzerland before, we find some remnants at the Reunion Square in the center city. The decoration on the wall of the city hall is worth looking at. Then, there is the City of Automobile in the north of the city. It is one of the biggest automobile museums in Europe and we can find hundreds of vehicles from various epochs.
