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.

Love the history behind this building. We stumbled upon it. Quite hard to find perhaps as not much of a crowd there. As mentioned before dont stress in finding it. All buildings in colmar just as stunning.

Although this is picked out on the tourist routes because of the number of heads decorating the facade it houses a top class restaurant and a beautiful courtyard area

Don't miss the House of Heads on the Rue des Tetes. This house was built in 1609. There are 106 heads, according to our guide, none the same. Auguste Bartholdi sculpted the building decorations in 1902. Don't miss when in town.

Colmar is known for its stunning architecture and old town views. The well named House of Heads is unique in appearance particularly amongst its neighbors. Would be better if the City invested in a sign explaining its history.

Original and interesting building. He stands out even among the variety of remarkable houses of Colmar. House of the heads can be seen a long time and as a whole, and individual parts. Heads are not repeated and make a great impression.

Having walked street after street lined with half-timbered houses, which we could hardly distinguish from one another, we were happy to come upon the 1609 ‘Maison des Têtes’ (The House of the Heads) in the busy Rue des Têtes. This reddish stone merchant’s house in...More

As one goes through the quaint streets and old houses of Colmar's medieval town, an interesting attraction is encountered in the Rue des Tetes ( Head Street) - The House of Heads. It is an interesting building decorated with about 100 heads or grotesque masks...More
