My choice would be Colmar, love the city and there are several markets throughout.  Safe travels and enjoy!

From what past cruisers have reported the Black Forest excursions are through forest along small roads and stop at more or less touristy places, glass-blowing, cake eating and a walk to a small church are most mentioned. You have not mentioned the river cruise company. If it is Viking, most definitely head to Colmar. For the other companies I would say Colmar still better than Black Forest. When you are in Colmar and religious art is your thing, go and see the Isenheim Altarpiece: https://www.musee-unterlinden.com/en/home/


Have a great cruise.
