Masterpieces of art
If you visit Colmar, be sure to make time for the Unterlinden museum, in the former Dominican convent. Here you can enjoy some absolute masterpieces of German Renaissance painting, including the altarpiece of Issenheim by Mathias Grunewald. The museum also includes almost all the extant paintings by Martin Schongauer, a native of Colmar. To finish, it has an archaeological section, an area dedicated to the decorative arts (ceramics, jewellery, furniture, musical instruments, weapons, etc) and modern art.
