Colmar, a quintessential Alsatian place

Colmar, a sunny and pleasant city of Alsace

Colmar is a 60.000 inhabitants city located in Alsace, in the eastern France. Probably dating back to the carolingian dynasty, this lovely town has a lot to offer. Between museums, shops and cultural heritage, you will be spoiled for choice !

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.

    "The train is awesome. Take it. Always. Also, if you know how, use a proxy to buy tickets on raileurope from a european country, not from the us. They're cheaper. "

    "It was a comfortable journey from Colmar to Paris with a stopover at Strasbourg for 6 hours. We stopped over as the Strasbourg station has the luggage facilities. We are seniors so it was not so convenient to sit at the upper seat for the journey from Strasbourg to Paris. "

    Great trip |
    "My husband and I are staying in Colmar, and it couldn't have been easier to get to Colmar from Paris. Getting to the Gare l'est was simple from the airport (the hardest part was figuring out how to get from the Gare nord to the Gare l'est), and even though I had to exchange our tickets because we missed our train due to a delayed flight, it was an easy process. The ride to Colmar was comfortable and fast. I looked into renting a car, but traveling by train was much faster. I would recommend Rail Europe to a friend. "
