  • We were surprised to see this miniature statue of liberty as we entered town from our Viking river cruise ship. There are many references to the artist/sculptor Bartholdi in the town.

  • A 12 meter high state of liberty stands in this roundabout since the sculptor was born here in Colmar. It's easy to park in the nearby parking lot. There are also some signs in French explaining the history behind. Currently it's draped in the Ukrainian flag.
  • The only reason the statue of Liberty (on a smaller scale) is here, is the fact its sculptor August Bartholdi is Colmar native. The Statue stands at the northern suburbs roundabout. While I was driving here I knew exactly what I'm about to see, but seeing it wrapped in Ukrainian flag deeply touched me.
  • As others have said, this monument is a 12 metere high replica of the Statue of Liberty. The designer of the statue was born in Colmar, hence its presence here. The monument stands in the enter or a very, very busy roundabout. There are parking lots close by, but the road is so busy I had no intention of getting my young kids out of the car to walk up to it, nor is the area very picturesque. We drove by and snapped a photo and called it a day - at least the road is a main route to Colmar so not out of the way by any means.
  • So overrated. Overall, it's nice to see a replica of the statue in the hometown of the artist himself. But it's a small statue inside a square with cars driving all around it. The location is just outside the city in the direction of Strasbourg (ergo poor transportation there). If you're too tired to go and you don't have your own car, you'll just get bummed out.
  • Beautiful imitation Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately is in a bad position outside the town of Colmar in a hard to go roundabout. Be careful of the cars if you visit it.
