You can easily reach Mulhouse by train, bus, car, plane or even boat. Once in the city, there is a well-developed network of trams which will take you where you need to go. Otherwise, you can easily rent a “vélib”, a bicycle which can be hired at an hourly or daily rate.
There are several foods that are particular to Mulhouse and its surrounding region. Mannala (meaning literally “little man”) is a sort of bread shaped to resemble a little man and is served with hot chocolate. The Schnackala is similar but is in the form of an “S”. Fleischschnacka is a mixture of pasta dough and ground beef which, when cooked in broth, resembles a snail. Sürlawerla is a slice of veal liver sautéed in shallots and red wine. Moricette is inspired by the pretzel but is used to make sandwiches. Melfor is a honey-flavoured vinegar used on salads and crudités. Lastly, Schankalas or Scharwas are small sugar donuts eaten during the Carnavalia period.
Mulhouse hosts various events all throughout the year. There is Carnavalia at the end of February, the Regional Camping Expo in spring, the Automobile festival in early July, the Festival of Street Art at the end of July, and The Great East Industrial Exposition and the Textile Printing Forum at the end of the year.
Kobe Bryant, the American basketball player, lived in Mulhouse for eight months in 1976 while his father was playing for the local FC Mulhouse Basket team.
