You really must stop by to see the Issenheim Altarpiece on display here through December 2015 while the Unterlinden is being renovated. Make sure you get an audio player to follow along. The program is quite good and the audio descriptions are well done. The Altarpiece is exquisite. The church is centrally located in Colmar, a short distance from la... More

This church is commonly called 'Colmar Cathedral' because of its majestic size rather than it ever being the seat of a bishop. It has a very tall nave and the long, narrow windows and unusual tower give the building considerable 'personality'. Inside is a tranquil, soothing space with a profusion of stained glass windows. There is a fine organ and... More

It is a former church and the very important items from the museum are on display. Very nice, free audio for USA folks. Easy to see everything, plenty of seating so you can really look. Very peaceful, even Nuns come here to see the art. No WC here. Because of the fungus disease rampant at the times, Christ is painted... More

The church itself isn't much to look at; but the exhibit from the Unterlinden Museum, that was undergoing renovation made the visit well worthwhile. Those art pieces were marvelous.

While the Underlinden Museum is closed for renovations until next November, the Issenhaim Alterpiece done by Grunewald in 1793 is being displayed at the Eglise des Dominicains. A short walking distance from the museum, the Dominican Church is a perfect place to see the altarpiece in all of its glory. The polyptych with its fixed center, 2 fixed and two... More

The Unterlinden Museum is shut for renovation until Oct 2016 so if you want to see Grunewald's masterpiece you need to visit this church. The Issenheim altar is well displayed there along with some other treasures

Wonderful church that currently hosts several paintings from the Unterlinden museum. These include the Grunewald's altar, Madonna in the rosebush (this one is not the part of the Unterlinden) as well as Melancholia by Lucas Cranach the Elder. The letter is somewhat missed by many. It is a small painting but it is so lovely. It is hard to miss... More

The Art Museum is being restored so some of the treasures are on display in the Eglise des Dominicans along with the beautiful Madonna on the Roses.

Since the Unterlinden Museum was closed for renovation, I went to this church to view some of the art where it is being temporarily displayed. The church itself is beautiful, but the art exhibit, including the Isenheim altarpiece, was especially enjoyable. I recommend the audio guide to enhance the experience by providing some tremendously interesting details about the artwork.
