This is the most charming town! We loved every minute we spent here. There is a tourist train that is quick and easy to take and it helps to orient you to this quaint village. We then walked to the places we liked and especially loved little Venice. Gorgeous. We found one of many outdoor cafes and spent a couple... More

This part of Colmar is so charming and you can not leave Colmar without strolling through Little Venice. You will really get an appreciation of the regions unique style in this village.

Very romantic to walk around in all seasons. In December you can listen to the famous boys choir La Maitrise de Garçons de Colmar singing Christmas songs on boats.

Very little. Not Venice. Still, the Old town has a very nice atmosphere, without this pompous label.

Old town in Colmar is beautiful to walk around, full of flowers, many cafés and restaurants, and the canals are lovely to stroll. The entirety of Olde Town is small enough to walk easily and the ambiance of Colmar is so lovely that just walking through the streets makes you smile. We had a delicious dinner on one of the...

I know a lot of reviewers say how underwhelmed they are with Petite Venice... but if you see the city for itself, rather than compare it to other places, you will see the uniqueness and quaintness of this section. The canal is cool and the streets surrounding it are full of good restaurants and shops. Explore each path and you... More

Colmar is with its little venice so charming. The houses in the Alsace region is adding to this atmosphere. Summer, Fall, Winter (perhaps spring too, but haven't been there) any time you fall in love
