Nice area with boat tours but not impressive. I think this attraction is over rated as only the true Venice deserve this rating.

Don't forget going around the canal. There are many restaurants which rent rides. You can go to have dinner there along the canal there are several restaurants which offer food and you can also drink the traditional beer made in Colmar, with its german style.

We took the boat tour from underneath the Saint-Pierre Bridge. For first timers, the boat tour is a wonderful opportunity to discover the string of beautifully restored colourful half-timbered houses dating from 1350 to 1609. Tickets sold here are: - Individual: 6 € per person. Children under 12: Free and the guides can speak French, German, or English. Our guide... More

From all the cities that me and my daughter visited on this 30 days trip, all over France's territory, which were a lot, Colmar was the one that made my heart light and very happy - specially the Little Venice with their's restaurants "au bord de la fleuve" (at canal side) and the tour on the small little boat for...

If in Colmar, it's definitely worth visiting. As regards eating in the immediate vicinity, I would probably be inclined to move a little more off the beaten path to find better value (and better service). Stroll around and admire the fantastic architecture, and if you look closely, you'll see fish gliding by in La Lauch.

The village surrounding the canal is beautiful. Some amazing restaurants near by. A must see if you are looking for a small town with French culture!

Little Venice is absolutely adorable. Every street is filled with beautiful buildings. I would highly recommend exploring this cute little area.

"Tres petite Venice" would be a better term. Although tremendously picturesque the scale is but a minute fraction of the scale of Venice. Different feel altogether ... Rather than the aged rugged and historic you will sense more of the charming cute and Disney vibe. Still a worthwhile walk.

This area is just like you are stepping into a fairytale town. Swans glide down the river area while you sit at a terrace and eat dinner. One would expect Belle from Beauty & the Beast to come around the corner reading a book. A lovely place to visit, have dinner or dessert.
