Travel Tips for Colmar

"Beerawecka" bread or fruit cake.

by breughel

Beerawecka (also berawecka) is fruit cake Alsatian speciality that makes me drive 550 Km to get some in Colmar!

Traditionally prepared starting from the autumnal period, this cake, is composed of dates, figs, prunes, dried pears, apricots, dry grapes, nut and almonds, and was always regarded as a very invaluable delicacy.
The mixture of these fruits is lengthily macerated in cherry (Kirsch) and pear brandy then bonded with a fine layer of paste sweetened with cinnamon, and worked out of bread of 200 gr approximately rolls, which are then decorated and cooked.

What is nice with Beerawecka is that you can keep it several months to pass the hard winter months. The calories level of this delicacy is on the very high level!

The quality and taste of this unique fruit cake increases with the fruit content. Price also increases. A standard beerawecka costs 9 € for 500 gr., upper quality like the one on my photo costs 9€ for 250 gr.

Cathedral Saint Martin

by JLBG

Saint Martin Church is usually named cathedral though it is actually a Collegiale. It was built in Gothic style the 13th and 14th in grey sand stone from Rouffach.

The tower was burnt in 1572 and rebuilt in Renaissance style. It is 71 meters.

The second photo shows the left part of the south side and the third shows the right part.

The first photo is a mounting of both (could be better !).

He Gave Us Liberty

by ExGuyParis

Architect & Sculptor Fr?d?ric-Auguste Bartholdi was born in Colmar on August 2, 1834. Since 1922, the home of his birth has been a museum. Here you can see plans and models for his works, including the most famous: the statue of Liberty Enlightening the World.

See my travelogue on this page for the story of this statue, and what it symbolizes for France and the US.

The oldest house in Colmar : Maison Adophe

by JLBG

Maison Adophe stands in front of Cathedral Saint Martin and on the left of the Ancien Corps de Garde. This outstanding tall house was built in 1350. Its windows are built with a broken arch, in Gothic style. The three lowest levels are built in stone and the upper levels are half timbering.

On the side of Maison Adophe, towards the Ancien Corps de Garde, a well has been kept (second photo). A carved stone says that Maison Adophe is among the oldest houses in Colmar. What is funny is that several houses in Colmar pride themselves to be among the oldest. May be they all are true !

Town Walk - 9 - The former Guard House

by robertbaum

"This Renaissance structure with its remarkable loggia, was built in 1575, from the framework of the Saint Jacques chapel, which sheltered the ossuary of the former cemetary of the collegiate church of Saint Martin. Originally intended to be a town hall, this building then housed the town guard. A nut market was once held under the arcades of the eastern part."
