Overview

Colmar, a quintessential Alsatian place

In the heart of eastern France, between the Vosges Mountains and the Rhine River, lies the city of Colmar. Located halfway between Strasbourg and Mulhouse, Colmar is a quintessential Alsatian place. This millenary town, nestled among the vineyards of the famed Alsatian Wine Route, enchants visitors with its rich architectural heritage and quaint half-timbered houses.

About France

The old town, miraculously preserved from the ravages of war, is fun to walk around. Stroll in the vast pedestrian area lined with all sorts of inviting shops. Take in medieval Colmar, symbolized by the Koïfhus (old Customs house) and the imposing Collégiale Saint Martin. You’re also sure to love the renaissance Colmar, where you’ll see the recently restored Pfister House with its painted facades, and the astounding House of Heads, which owes its name to its 111 grotesque sculpted heads. For culture lovers, Colmar opens the doors of the Bartholdi museum (the birth place of the creator of the Statue of Liberty), not to mention the splendid Unterlinden Museum, a genuine showcase of Rhineland fine art where you’ll be able to admire the 14th century Isenheim Altarpiece. In 2015, the Unterlinden will be extended with a new wing devoted to modern art and temporary exhibitions. No trip to Colmar is complete without snapping a few photos of the lovely Little Venice quarter, and tasting local specialities in a wistub (a cosy traditional tavern).
Our tip: Discover the charms of Colmar aboard a flat-bottom boat on the Lauch Canal, and roam Old Colmar at dusk to appreciate the way the subtle play of light sublimes the town.
