“The History is worth the time!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Remember: --DO YOUR HOMEWORK!! The more you know and understand about this part of France and Germany alternatively, the better time you will have. Each building has a distinct history and part of what made this area so vibrant.

“Pretty building”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Was used for a trade show exhibition of local artisans when we exploring the inner city. It caught our attention when we were dining in an outdoor restaurant.

“Wow”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Koifhus means "customs" in german. Simply because it was the customs office when Alsace was still under the german empire.
Amazing building, located inside the medieval area of the city, it´s definitely worth a visit, and why not take lunch in the restaurant just in front who have the same name...

“Exquisite architecture”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This building was the highlight of the trip to Colmar, in my opinion.
A beautiful example of Renaissance architecture, it took me to another place and time. I found all of the architecture of Colmar very interesting, but this building was the best.
