Landmarks · History Museums · Architectural Buildings
Situated along the Alsatian Wine Route, Colmar is renowned for its German and French culture, well-preserved old town, numerous architectural landmarks, and its museums. Its canals with gondolas helped Comar earn the nickname Little Venice. Located in the Haut-Rhin department of the Alsace region, this town founded in the 9th century has a sunny microclimate and is the one of the driest cities in France, making it ideal for Alsace wine. You'll see Germanic and French architecture made from pink and yellow Vosges sandstone and timber framing that is unique to the area. All of Colmar's attractions are concentrated in the well-preserved old town, a medieval city that's surprisingly big. Let your sweet tooth run wild in Colmar, a city known for its delicious pastries, like macarons, not to be confused with American macaroons, and kugelhopf, a well-known cake similar in shape to Bundt cake with raisins and powdered sugar on top. Plan how to spend your time in Colmar and other destinations in France using our France day trip tool.
