Why visit Colmar?


Its charm inspires lovers and its canals are ideal for the sweetest declarations, like a French-style Little Venice.


Like something out of a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, every narrow lane is a delight to behold.


The birthplace of Auguste Bartholdi, who created the Statue of Liberty, Colmar is an incredible city of art, history and heritage.
