Fairytale town

If you like "Howl's Moving Castle" from Ghibli studios, you will recognise that its design was inspired by Colmar's townscape. A fairytale town in the Alsace region

Come on, it is not Little Venice, but it was fun to ride the small canal and see the sights along the way. Getting in and out of the boats is fun. A change from the walking and a nice half hour.

If you're in Colmar, there's no way you can't go to Little Venice. It has cosy streets and lots to see!

We only had a day here, could easily spent more time! The history & architecture was amazing. We had lunch in Little Venice, where you really feel like you have been transported back in time or to another world altogether. Loved the history of Colmar, people are friendly, some speak English, great help if your French is minimal!! There is... More

Little Venice is a nice relaxing area for a stroll or to eat and drink. Its quite full of tourists but still calm and quiet.

This is not really an attraction, not a destination. A stones throw away from the covered market (actually runs behind it), but it is a nice walk along the canal with many beautiful buildings and what appeared to be some interesting restaurants in the area. It is also worth a chuckle to see the boats go under the bridges, as... More

You might miss it without a map. Just a few houses and buildings on a canal. Pretty area for walking. Restaurants are expensive. Best thing about the area is the covered market (Marche couvert), which is a little pleasant to walk in, have a snack, and look around.

This area has not much in common with the original Venice in Italy: basically, only that both have antique houses on waterways. Apart from this consideration, Little Venice is really enjoyable: both during the day, when the brightly colored houses can be appreciated in all their beauty, and at night, when the lights of restaurants, street lamps etc., mirror in...

The old houses à colombage are splendid, the canals are nothing like Venice, they are full of greenery. It's a charming walk into another world. Just enjoy your visit and make your own opinion! And if you happen to visit during the Christmas markets, Little Venice is the traditional spot for the children's Christmas market.

Old houses are lined up next to the canals giving it a beautiful look and ambiance. The walk isn't very long and may be full of tourists but it is quite lovely. It started raining while I was there but it was still very nice.
