What's Colmar Like?

Located in the middle of the Alsace wine region, Colmar is a charming medieval town with plenty to see and do. The city center has hardly been touched by war or revolution, and retains a timeless feel. With its lattice work of canals that branch off the river Lauch, Colmar is something like a French version of Venice, and walking around the old town is a magical experience. Historical buildings are everywhere, with highlights including the Maison Pfister and the stunning Church of St Martin, while the city's squares are adorned with countless sculptures and fountains. There are also many wonderful museums to visit, such as the Unterlinden Museum and a museum dedicated to the sculptor Bartholdi, one of Colmar's most famous sons. Then there are regional sights - not least the vineyards of Alsace which produce some of Europe's finest wines.
