Dark and somewhat scary location with the only thing going for it - the beautiful Vierge au Buisson de Roses - that said, they know this is the thing, so you have to pay to access the altar.

This former Domenican church was constructed in the 13th and 14th centuries. It is now a museum and apart from important old books boasts the 'Madonna im Rosenhag' painting - the Virgin with the Roses altarpiece.

This church was started in 1283 and most of it dates back to the 14th century? It is rather austere inside except for Martin Schongauer's masterpiece,Madonna of the Rose Bush. When we were there, even though there are signs saying no photos, a docent assured us that photos are fine as long as no flash is used. Definitely worth going... More

This former church basically houses just one picture - the Madonna im Rosenhag - so it really is showcased and shown off to it's advantage. Admission is only €1,50

We went to this church because there was a fabulous exhibit of Dominican writings, illuminations and documents. Other than this there was nothing particularly unique.

This Gothic church, originally a Dominican order chapel, is mainly known for the Virgin and Child with Roses altarpiece. However, the true gems are BEHIND--volumes of medieval handwritten books and hymnbooks with beautiful colored illustrations! The stained glass windows are also old and well preserved. However, it is sad to see such a sanctuary now turned into a cold museum.

Loved the display of manuscripts, but i think this was not a permanent exhibition. You can still see the marvellous Tryptich, but this is also a matter a taste.

This church has a beautiful Madonna of the Rosegarden altarpiece by Martin Schongauer. But this summer and into the fall, don't miss the special exhibit featuring it ms from Colmar's Archives (temporarily closed) on display, in honor of the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Dominican Order. Manuscripts and special documents are on display, with an excellent audio guide... More

The Dominican Church with its Madonna in the Rosebower by Colmar born Martin Schongauer is also worth a visit, Until September they are also hosting an exhibition of rare books and maps which is well worth the 2.50 euro entry fee. It does close from 1pm till 3pm but you can return on same day if you need more time.
