Colmar: Churches & Gargoyles (10 photos)

During our vacation/family visit in Germany, we did a day-trip to Colmar, a charming little town in France, which lies just across the border to the west of Baden-Württemberg.

As is often the case with such old villages, the density of churches is surprisingly high – one of them wasn’t actually a church anymore, but is an art museum nowadays. Walking around these huge historic buildings I became quite fascinated with all the details and decorative elements on their exterior. And then I discovered the sometimes funny and cute, sometimes odd and outright weird gargoyles. Why is that guy licking the leg of a goat?! I guess we will never find out.
