Maison Pfister Tours

Maison Pfister
The attention-grabbing, exuberant house on Rue des Marchands is a must in Colmar. Built in 1537 for wealthy hatter from nearby Besançon named Ludwig Scherer, the house boasts extravagantly ornate frescoes (representing Germanic emperors and Biblical scenes) and medallions with typical medieval features; it is, however, regarded as the finest example of Colmar’s architectural renaissance. Maison Pfister also boasts a beautifully carved balcony, long wooden galleries, octagonal turret, a two-story corner oriel, and ground-floor arcades. The house is named after the family that lived in it and restored it in the late 19th century. It was made a historic monument of France in 1927.

Practical Info

Note that Maison Pfister is not a museum, nor is it open to the public; visitors can instead admire its magnificent façade from the street. Maison Pfister is best accessed on foot as it is situated on a pedestrian street, but cars are welcome to park at nearby outdoor parking lot named Parking de la Cathédrale. The best way to get there from the A35 motorway is D418, rue Étroite, and rue des Prêtres. Those on foot coming from the train station can walk along Avenue de la République and rue des Marchands.
Address: 11 Rue des Marchands, Colmar 68000, France
