Colmar is a charming city in the Alsace region of north-east France. Situated along the Alsatian Wine Route, the town considers itself the Capital of Alsatian Wine as it has a microclimate that is perfect for Alsatian wine grapes. Colmar is equally characterised by its beautiful architecture. As the city managed to dodge the destruction of the French Revolution, the Franco-Prussian War and both World Wars, visitors can find architectural features in Colmar spanning eight centuries of Germanic and French tradition.

Founded in the ninth century, Colmar was made a free imperial city in 1226. The city was finally conquered by the French in 1673, but was annexed by the German Empire in 1871 as part of Alsace-Lorraine. It was then returned to France in the Treaty of Versailles following WW1, annexed again by Nazi Germany n 1940 before finally reverting to French control in 1945 after the battle of the ‘Colmar Pocket’.
