Overview

Colmar, a quintessential Alsatian place

Colmar, a sunny and pleasant city of Alsace

About France

Board a train to Colmar and let the charm operate. Among the unavoidable must-see of Colmar, you have to stroll along the "Petite Venise" district’s streets.

You will easily understand why does this area has such a nickname having a walk along the Lauch’s canal. Head the "Ancienne douane" square and discover the old custom, called Koïfhus, dating back to the 15th century. Discover the 16th century Pfister house with its just-restored frescos and visit the St Martin collegiate dating back to the 13th and 14th century. Admire the "maisons aux têtes" facade, adorned with more than a hundred mascarons.

Then don’t miss the Dominican’s church, and the Unterlinden museum, housed in an ancient convent and presenting masterpieces of the Rhineland art.
