Sélestat invented the Christmas tree, but this is not the only claim to fame of this small Alsace town. It is the birthplace of Lutheran pastor Martin Bucer (1491-1551) and during the Renaissance was a great humanist centre. It has preserved many traces of this glorious era in its architecture... including a fabulous humanist library. Half-way between Colmar and Strasbourg, Sélestat is strategically placed on the Wine Route.
