Colmar's jumbled history alternating between French and German nationality makes this city a wonderfully unique travel destination. Located in France's Alsace region, Colmar is directly connected by rail to Strasbourg and Basel. Trains run almost hourly, and the ride to Strasbourg takes only 30 minutes.
The medieval old town of Colmar has been impeccably preserved, making it the city's prized attraction. Wander the streets and look out for signs indicating dates of construction, as some houses date as far back as the 14th century.
The Maison des Ttes is an intricately decorated Renaissance building, while the St Martin Church is a building constructed of a striking pink stone. The Unterlinden Museum was built inside a medieval convent, and often hosts interesting exhibits. The Bartholdi Museum is a tribute to the Statue of Liberty's sculptor, who was born in Colmar.
The Colmar Rail Station is a notable Art Nouveau style building. It is located a 15-minutes walk from the old town, making car hire a suitable option. Colmar is actually quite large for a medieval town, so car rental may be a welcome convenience for those looking to cover more ground. Travellers may also choose to drive the Alsatian Vineyard Route, which passes through a number of lovely villages in the region.
