Its beautiful..it really feels like Venice and the stretch is too small. Dont go there with the too high hopes. The place is indeed very beautiful..but doesn't come too close to the charm of Venice. For first timers: 1. Please book your table at a restaurant in advance, if you plan to eat there. We went there on a Saturday... More

Very beautiful, but it was so small - just a very small area with a short canal. So IMO it should be called Very Little Venice. We didn't take a boat tour but when we saw them thought they were not worth it cause they were just a very short trips to one direction and then same way back.

Little Venice is an amazing and beautiful place, in my opinion is the highlight of Colmar. The buildings along the canal are lovely, with colourful flowers along its balconies. The 30 minutes boat ride along the canal is a must do attraction. You can get to see the beautiful view of Little Venice from a different angle. Additionally, the guide... More

Colmar's Little Venice is beautiful with abundant flowers and plenty of shops. Their "gondolas" were a little hoaky with their electric trolling motors for propulsion. Enjoyed our visit immensely .

If you go to Colmar, you must walk along the river and take one of the little boat ride. It is however a quite small part of Colmar - a must seen only if you are already in Colmar for any other reason !

I wish we could have wandered around without thousands of people!! It really seems like Disneyworld with all the cute houses, water, and tons of people!! I felt like it was almost fake because of the hoards of people. However, I would recommend coming for a short tour, but too long and you will get annoyed! Take your pictures, wander... More

You have to walk along the canal to see all of the area - yes, it is small but there is more if you follow the canal. Several spots to take beautiful photographs - if you are patient and wait for the tourists to move on. Beautiful colored timber houses with overflowing flower boxes line the river - the views...

Slightly disappointed after seeing all of the pictures. It is pretty but very small, so it is a destination to take some photographs and then find a restaurant for lunch or dinner!
