The village where the tournament is held is a former commune in the Haut-Rhin department in the Grand East region of France. This commune is in the historical and cultural region of Alsace and has become, on 1Er January 2016, a commune in the new commune of Porte-du-Ried. With an area of 6.45 km2, of which 64 ha of forest, Holtzwihr is a commune of the Rhine plain, located in the Ried of the Ill, 6 km northeast of Colmar.
One of the nicknames given to the Holtzwihriens was the “choucroutiers” because of the large cabbage plantations around the village.
Business tourism, leisure tourism, destination shopping … as a group or as an individual, thousands of people visit Colmar every year. They come from France, Germany or neighbouring Switzerland, elsewhere in Europe or around the world. In Colmar, visitors discover a summary of the testimonies left by the rich history of the Rhine region, which is the subject of tragic disputes between peoples, a place of many and profitable exchanges, a hotbed of humanism. The city rich in art and history is today a city of 70 000 inhabitants which makes it the second commune Haut-Rhinoise and the third commune Alsatian in number of inhabitants after Strasbourg and Mulhouse. Colmar has chosen to link with the latter in the Metropolitan Pole Strasbourg-Mulhouse-Colmar which federates the large Alsatian settlements in order to weigh within the new region Grand East. Its inhabitants are called the Colmariens.
Its location, in the middle of the Alsatian vineyard and close to the Piedmont Vosges, and its peculiar climate conducive to the cultivation of the vine, are worth the nickname “Capital of Alsace Wines”. It is also a city of culture, seat of the Unterlinden Museum housing the altarpiece of Issenheim. Colmar is also the hometown of the creator of the Statue of Liberty in New York, Auguste Bartholdi and Jean-Jacques Waltz, better known as Hansi.
