This was an exciting find. This is Augustus Bartholdi's birth place. Bartholdi was the artist who made the Statue of Liberty. He was born in Colmar. Colmar even has a small Statue of Liberty replica
This area was called Little Venice
This is Koifus. Colmar’s oldest civic building is its former customs house that was completed in 1490 and was both the economic and administrative fulcrum of the city. On the first floor of the southernmost building is the boardroom where the Décapole would meet: This was a federation of Alsace’s ten Free Cities that lasted until 1679.
This is Maison Pfister. IT was made in 1537. and has a lot of Frescoes on the outside. It was really beautiful.
The sun went down, and all the lights came on. Almost every building was decorated
Before Mat and I left, we stopped in a rotating cafe and had hot chocolate. The cafe was like a merry go round that went really slowly - it was pretty neat.
My two finds today. A replica of Maison Pfister, and a gnome.
