  Unterlinden Museum
by german_eagle
 
 

The Unterlinden Museum is probably the most famous place in Colmar. The museum found its home in the former Dominican convent which was built 1269 - 89. In medieval times the convent was a centre of spiritual life in the region.

Secularized during the French revolution the buildings were used for the museum. It hosts important collections of medieval and contemporary works of art (mostly pictures).

The most famous work of art is the Isenheimer Altar by Matthias Grünewald, which deserves its own tip :-)

Directions: western edge of the old town.
