La Maison des Têtes
Even though the room itself was small, the location of this hotel was great - just right at shopping streets and restaurants. It also has a parking a couple of meters from the entrance.

La Maison des Tetes Colmar
A Romantic Escape
This charming four-star hotel is in a building with amazing carvings of heads (Maison des têtes = House of Heads). Very close to the Unterlinden Museum, this hotel is a perfect base for exploring Colmar and Alsace. The Maison des têtes was built in 1609; part of the hotel is in this original building. There is a beautiful interior court and a restaurant.
Room prices begin at € 91 per night, range up to € 247 for a three-person duplex with whirlpool.
Unique Quality: Incredible charm... wood beams in rooms, a beautiful interior court where you can have breakfast in nice weather

La Maison des Tetes Colmar Photo: The Courtyard: perfect for courting
The Maison des Tetes was built in 1609 for the merchant Anton Burger. Its facade has three levels of mullioned windows below a gabled top that is crowned with a Bartholdi statue. The lower three levels are decorated with rows of sculptures ranging from carytids to heads to grotesques. It now houses a restaurant.
La maison des tetes
I've never been inside the building but I took pictures of it because I felt very impressed about the architecture of this building. A part of this magnificent 17th century house is built in the ancient ditch of the surrounding walls.
The city of Colmar is full of architectural oddities and one-of-a-kind buildings. Perhaps the most curious is the House of Heads (la Maison des tetes). This 1609 building is covered with carvings of heads, which one can see by getting up close. It's a product of the German Renaissance, now a hotel. Check out la Maison Pfister from 1537, another fine example of German architecture. Visit the old covered marketplace. Or just take a stroll. There's plenty to see here.
