Colmar

Colmar

Capital of Alsace wines

It is no longer necessary to praise the charms of Colmar: its half-timbering, its canals, its flowery town-centre... A condensation of an idyllic Alsace, the Alsace wine capital is the guardian of a lifestyle which you need to discover!

It provides the intimacy of a medium-sized town combined with the most remarkable rich heritage. Birthplace of the famous sculptor Bartholdi, father of the famous Statue of Liberty Leading the People, it also saw the birth of Hansi, the most famous Alsacian illustrator. Nevertheless, the place you really need to visit is of course the "Petite Venise"! However, you will also enjoy strolling on foot in the large town centre renowned for the half-timbered houses of the Quai de la Poissonnerie. Culture thirsty people will end their tour of Colmar at the Unterlinden Museum to admire its famous Retable d’Issenheim (the Isenheim Altarpiece)...
