Colmar is a town located northeast of France, in the Grand Est region. It is close to the border with Germany and offers magnificent landscapes. Its old town has alleys entirely covered with cobblestones and its half-timbered houses give enormous charm to Colmar.

During your stay in this sumptuous Alsatian city, we advise you to visit the Unterlinder Museum which is a former convent and an association museum. It is one of the most visited provincial art museums. Pass the Collegiate Church of Saint-Martin, also called "Saint-Martin Cathedral of Colmar" which is the most important religious building in the city and one of the largest Gothic churches in the Haut-Rhin.

Do not miss the Little Venice of Colmar which is an old picturesque tourist sector. The view is magnificent and will really make you feel in Alsace: it is a typical place where you can have lunch or dinner. Then go to the Hohlandsbourg Castle which is a 13th century castle with a surprising view and a museum.
