    Customs House

    by rexvaughan Written Jun 4, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a magnificent 15th Century structure with a finely designed tile roof and a host of cupolas, gables and dormers. It was originally used by delegates of the 10 leading cities of Alsace (Decapolis) to discuss issues of commerce (and probably politics and women). Walk all around to appreciate the beauty, variety and richness of the architecture.

    Colmar during Christmas time

    by gueto Written May 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the best time to go visit Colmar. The town shows its best face for a fairy-tale like moment. The streets are full of people who gather around little shops where you can buy presents. The shops are placed in "marches de noel "or Christmas street markets". It start in November 25 to December 31.This festive period blends harmoniously with the wonderful lighting designed to enhance the town’s heritage,

    As you walk you can smell the tasty "vin chaud"or hot wine. It is worth giving a try at it, specially because it gets really cold during that time. You can try as well the famous cake called "pain d'epices". It's a cake with different spices such as cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and anis. Simply delicious!!!

    Champ de Mars - It's quite a large park. Clean & well kept with nice statues, water features etc...
    Our kids had a great time running about, especially through the fountains!

  • Look for Hansi

    by reenby Updated Mar 29, 2007

    Hansi is a local artist who worked in Colmar in the 19th century. If you look up above the shops you will see a good selection of his lovely shop-signs - some with his name on them.
