Dominican Church of Colmar

Great art in Gothic style

Save to my Account

Dominican clergy started this church in 1283, but the building has been renovated several times. In the early 18th century the Gothic structure took on a Baroque style, and today your attention will be drawn to the church’s beautiful portals and stained-glass windows.

The church is a bit bare and doesn’t have a bell, but the carved doors and stained-glass windows are beautiful. Inside, you will find lovely pieces of art including Madonna of the Rose Bush, a 1473 creation of Colmar’s native son and famous artist Martin Schongauer. The altarpiece depicts the Virgin and child seated on a rose backed by gold with angels holding crowns above them.

Next door, the old convent is now a public library and features a peaceful covered walkway and an attractive garden.
