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.

    Bon voyage with Rail Europe |
    "I recently travelled from Colmar to Paris on the TGV. It was an excellent journey. Train left on time from Colmar with times and carriage placings clearly indicated by excellent signage on platform at Colmar. Only comment I would make would be with regard to buffet car which is quite small and not equipped to handle a queue of people waiting for food, although young attendant did an excellent job.. On other train journeys I have experienced, a food trolley has come through the carriages which has been very convenient. "

    TGV is not as nice as Thalys |
    "TGVs are nice when you don't get aisle seats. Aisle seats are uncomfortable as there is nothing to look at and you will inevitably fall asleep (most likely on the person next to you) if you don't have something to keep you occupied! They are also expensive and do not offer any complimentary wifi. "

    Alsace Christmas Markets |
    "I travelled on a comfortable TGV train from Paris to Strasbourg, through the picturesque French countryside to see the Christmas Markets. It was a long held dream of mine to see the famous Christmas Markets of Strasbourg and Colmar and they were better than I dreamed they would be. They were magical, especially at night, plus a cup of Vin Chaud was a must, as it really warmed me on a cold winters night. "

    Excellent |
    "We travelled first class and unfortunately had been allocated seats in non-quiet coach. The children arrived immediately with the usual noise. So we moved into a nearby quiet coach with the permission of the conductor and therefore enjoyed our journey! "

    TGV travel is amazing |
    "Travelling on the TGV is amazing. The trains are clean, comfortable and, in our experience, very punctual.We think it is a very convenient, hassle-free way to travel. The cost is very low and great value for money. You can sit back and watch the beautiful countryside roll by whilst you are having a snack and a drink. "
