Mulhouse


Mulhouse is situated near the Swiss and German borders and shares the international airport Basel - Mulhouse - Freiburg with its neighbours. The rivers Doller and the Ill run through the city. Previously part of the German Empire of the Alsace-Lorraine region it passed over to French control after the Second World War.



Mulhouse is famous for its museums, especially the Cité de l’Automobile (also known as "Musée national de l’automobile - The French National Automobile Museum") and the Musée Français du Chemin de Fer (also known as "Cité du train"), which represent the largest automobile and railway museums in Europe. The city was founded on its successful textile and tanning industry which eventually led to chemical and engineering industries that gave Mulhouse its nickname as the French Manchester.



Mulhouse is a particularly pleasant town with its meticulously kept main square and impressive town hall. The side streets are a delight to walk around with some impressive 
examples of French and German architecture.
