A document dating back to 823 mentions Colmar, but it is not until the early 13th century that it really achieves city status. Several religious communities settle there. Colmar joins the Décapole, a league of ten imperial cities in Alsace which protects their interests. Having taken off in a gig way in the 15th and 16th centuries, the city goes through much upheaval following the Thirty-Year War. Colmar then lies in ruins and becomes a protectorate of Sweden, than of France.
It becomes a royal city in 1678. Conceded to Germany after the 1870 war, Colmar becomes French once more in 1918, than has a brief German phase during the Second World War.
Are you looking for ideas for walks in Colmar? Stroll through the old town centre, gaze at the half-timbered houses and paved narrow streets (most of which are fully pedestrianised), then walk along quai de la Poissonnerie, head over to explore the vineyards... Nature lovers will want to take a walk in Parc du Château d'eau, which has a wonderful rose garden, and will line up an escapade into one of the surrounding forests (nearby you’ll find the alluvial forest of Niederwald and the forests of Neuland and Fronholz).
Collégiale Saint-Martin, Eglise des Dominicains, Maison Adolph, Maison Huselin zum Swan, Koïfhus... The city is brimming with real architectural gems, which reflect the splendour of Colmar in the Middle Ages. You’ll also admire the beauty of the Maison Pfister and the Maison des Têtes, decorated with 111 grotesques heads, two superb relics of the Renaissance period. As for museums, Colmar is home in particular to the Musée Unterlinden, where the famous Issenheim altarpiece is on display.
From the Festival de Musique de chambre in May, to the Festival international de musique classique de Colmar in July, to the not-to-be-missed Foire aux Vins in August, the Festival de Jazz in September and the Festival d'humour de Colmar in October, the city hosts lots of events throughout the year.
