.....after all, you're going to see a lot of unusual houses in Colmar. Our apartment during our stay was just metres from this and we had many opportunities to look at the carved heads. Interesting, but only if you happen to walking past!

This is a must see in Colmar too. Very nice old building with lots of statues on its facade. You cannot miss it when leaving the museum or wandering in Colmar as it is indicated everywhere.

You pass this unique building on the road train but to see it in all its glory walk to it and have a real good look at it. Great carvings of heads are all over the building it’s fascinating.

There are 106 heads on the facade of this 1609 house. A must for art lovers, and a fun sight for everyone. It was recently restored and is spectacular. There is a very nice looking restaurant in the courtyard.

Attractive building, worth seeking out when in Colmar. If the sun is out go in the afternoon when the sum bathes it in a good light.

If you walk without the map, you will need to keep looking up to find this place. The exterior of the building is full of heads. On 1st floor is a restaurant, which seems to be a nice one as well.

House of Heads is one of Colmar's famous buildings. It was built in the 17th century and was originally a wealthy private house. It should have been the pioneer building at the time because the entire wall is covered with a variety of heads. As...More

This is a show stopper of a building, faced with over a 100 heads or grotesque masks. At the end of the 19th century it became the home of the Wine Exchange. Today it is a luxury hotel and restaurant.

It is a hotel and restaurant.. Looks wonderful, but probably not cheap.
