Basically, except when the Christmas Market shuttle operates, you can't. There are two buses a day but they leave Colmar at lunchtime and late afternoon and Equisheim early morning and lunchtime - a lunchtime visit would be possible but very very brief.

Otherwise, you could get Trace bus 5 from the Theatre or Gare to the Halte de Wettolsheim - roughly every half hour, no evening or Sunday service - and walk from there.

And a taxi would not break the bank .... but I know you said 'public' transport!

Alternatively why not hire a bike from Vélodocteurs next to the station and cycle ... about 30-40 mins. https://www.viamichelin.fr/web/Itineraires… from ViaMichelin.fr offers a choice of routes.

Well, the current timetable is a little better than just two buses per day, but not much. Besides the bus at 12:11 (Monday to Saturday) to Eguisheim and back again, there are also two morning buses from Colmar to Eguisheim at 6:50 (Monday to Friday on Schooldays) and 8:00 (Monday to Saturday), and two buses back from Eguisheim to Colmar in the evening at 17:07 (Monday to Friday) and 19:00 (Monday to Thursday on Schooldays - this one might not operate when the Centre d'Aide par le Travail at Eguisheim is on holidays). So it's not impossible to visit by bus, if you want to stay there for half a day. Or you use the bus one way and walk the other direction or go by taxi.

These buses are from two lines and use different stops at Eguisheim and don't all serve the same stops at Colmar - make sure you wait at the right stop.

Thank your very much for your detailed responses.

In case we finally decide to go by taxi,, are they available at the Colmar Gare? And in Eguisheim, do you know if they have a "taxi stop"? how much would it cost per way?

They have a taxi rank at Colmar station and a list of telephone numbers on the door of the information office (on the left side of the main hall next to the bookshop). Make sure you agree a return time with your driver or get a number to call a taxi to collect you if you want to take one back. I would reckon 10-15 € max one way.

Hello

We just came back from holidays

We had the same "problem"

We didn't want to take taxi ...

But the bus 208 I think, it has weird schedule it leaves Colmar around 12pm and it comes back from Eguisheim around 16,40pm

Too tight programm... so we stayed in Colmar until 2pm and we ended up renting bikes from http://www.velodocteurs.com - 12€eur Half day with 150€ deposit...

It took us 30min Colmar - Eguisheim (we parked the bikes next to the Tourism Office )

Lovely route through wineries and beautiful landscapes

Cheers!
