23/46.- Alsace, Colmar, Koifhus

Facing the Koifhus, the old customs' building with its colourful roof, stands a statue dedicated to Lazare de Schwendi, who introduced into Alsace the Tokay grape, brought home from one of his military campaigns in Hungary. The Tokay grape was to give the Alsatian wines its fame and glory. The statue is by Bartholdy, the sculptor who also designed the Statue of Liberty.
