At present (early 2014) two major pierces of art are on display here: Schongauer's "Virgin in the Rosebush" and Grunewald's Isenheim Altarpiece. Of these, the first is not only lovely in itself, but is also - I think - perfectly positioned for a work of this type, brilliantly lit by the high choir windows all round, and placed in and... More

This church has a prominent spot on the Colmar skyline. Its plain exterior is mirrored inside, but you don't come here to see the building. You come here to see the art. This is the home of Martin Schongauer's Virgin in the Rosebush, a beautiful work of art with an interesting history. As an added treat in 2014, Matthias Grunewald's... More

This 12-13th C church is rather plain inside but the portrait of the Red Madonna is wonderful. No photographs allowed.

A wonderful exhibition around the 'Madonna im Rosenhag' by Martin Schongauer in a beautiful church. We were late in the afternoon and were lucky to have a chance to look at the painting.

Martin Schongauer's Virgin in the Rosebush is more than enough reason to visit this church. The work is as brilliant as if it were painted yesterday. The high lights are magnified on several panels on either side of the work and described in French, English and German. I also found the stations of the cross in this church most moving.

This plain-interior church possesses the 1473 "Virgin in the Rosebush" by Martin Schongauer. If you have any interest in art, it's worth going in to see this piece which looks as if it was painted yesterday. There is a 1.5 euro entrance fee and no photos are allowed.

We loved seeing "La Vierge de la Boissons" but were surprised at the complete photography ban. I bought a few postcards but there wasn't any larger representations of the piece in their small gift shop.

The Schongauer painting - Madonna of the Rose Bower - is most definitely the best part of this tour. The church is impressive and somewhat typical of so many across Europe, but the painting is gorgeous.
