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.

We visited the Dominican Church because the Unterlinden Museum was closed for renovation and some of the art work was being displayed in the church. We were blown away! The Issenheim altar piece alone was worth the price of admission, but there were so many beautiful pieces of religious art. Amazing.

I have seen quite a lot of cathedrals in France. So comparable to them, this church is really normal. When I was there, there is a gallery of paintings inside.

Lovely church in its own right, although perhaps not as decorative inside as we expected. But with the current art display (whilst the museum is being renovated) it's definitely a worthwhile viewing. The audio guides are actually pretty good and really help you make sense of all the painted scenes. Certainly one of the top attractions of Colmar.

This church is nice but the current display of the Triptychs is astounding. Not one but several. They are so beautiful and on display that allows you to get close and enjoy the detail and colors.

The Dominican Church Colmar. The building of this church started already in 1283, It is an important example of the mendicant orders architecture. The Dominicans arrived in 1278 but were temporarily driven out of town in 1930. In the year 1458 the roof and the cloister were severely damaged by a fire, so that a restauration was needed. The Dominican... More

The Eglise des Dominicains is the temporary home of the Issenheim Altarpiece. It is spectacular, as others here say, as is the Virgin in the Rosebush. There also are some lovely carved wooden pieces of statuary, and I regret that I didn't take time to identify the artists or subjects of these pieces. The altarpiece images have been lovingly cleaned... More
