It is not easy to find house if you don't have a map with you. At the very beginning of the 17. century was built and decorated outside with 106 heads.

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.

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.

Read about it first and then go see it! it makes much more sense! On the top is a statue of Bartholdi...the designer of the Statue of Liberty!

At first you will walk by without giving the building a second thought, but when you take the guided tram ride, the driver will point out the details of the facade.

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