Colmar was annexed to the German Empire in 1871 then returned to France following the armistice of 1918. Although not the capital of the region, Colmar shelters a court of appeal.

Its location, in the center of the Alsatian vineyard and close to the Vosges foothills, and its particular climate conducive to the cultivation of the vine, have earned it the nickname "capital of Alsace wines".
