This is an extraordinary property with an incredible restaurant. We came for Christmas Day and stayed one night. We had dinner at Le Giradin, the Michelin-starred restaurant.

Everything about our stay was flawless. The hotel arranged for a pickup at the train station, without which we would have been stranded like hundreds of other passengers trying to find a taxi in the holiday rush.

The room we stayed it was beautiful with exposed medieval timbers and views over the rooftops of Colmar.

At dinner, Chef-Owner Eric Giradin prepared a vegan meal for my wife which was one of the best she has ever had. Needless to say, vegan food is hard to come by in Alsace.

Cannot recommend this property highly enough. Would make another trip just to stay here.

The building currently houses an hotel so your focus is the exterior. It's fascinating to see the various head carvings on the front of the building. The copper figure on the top is by Bartholdi. This is a walk by stop. The street is charming as well.

I cannot say enough positive things about our stay at La Masion des Tetes. We were in Colmar for a week on business, and the hotel was immaculate and quiet - the perfect place to both work and relax. I especially want to compliment the kind restaurant staff who made us feel like honored guests in their home. I can't wait to visit again!

Walked by this building during our tour of Colmar. Building with lot of details. Didn’t place a reservation at the restaurant due to the tight budget we have for this vacation 😉

Interesting architecture, but would have liked to have some explanation on a panel as to who built it and what the heads represent. Otherwise its just another building ...

Beautiful hotel with very quiet, comfortable rooms. The staff is incredibly friendly, and the breakfasts are huge French breakfasts. The hotel is very French— the food is French, the staff speaks French, and the bathrooms don’t have full showers (just a showerhead in the bathtub). Everyone was very helpful in terms of recommending places to see.

As you walk around the town you will see many unique and attractive buildings. However this one with all the heads on it was really unique.

La Maison de Tetes, or the House of Heads is a beautiful, yet not extraordinary edifice in central Colmar. However, once here it's worth visiting.
It was built in 1609 in Renaissance style by a wealthy merchant who later became a mayor - Anton Burger.
The statue on top of the gable of Alsace barrel maker was added by August Bartholdi in 1902, who made the NYC Statue of Liberty and whose museum is here in Colmar.
From that 1902 the House served as a Wine Bourse, while today beside that there's a Michelin star restaurant onsite and an upscale hotel.

This is one of the major sites in town. Unique architecture and definitely worthy of your camera. It's historic and the design is totally charming.

This is one of the most famous curiosities in town, an old townhouse with special design features. We enjoyed our stroll past and took a photo.
