Little Venice is really nice, especially along the river/canal. We saw ducks, swans and a musquash!? in the water. We didn't do it, but I guess it's even more beautiful from the water. You can do little boat trips on the water and see the beautiful houses from a different angle.

Very photogenic and romantic with the opportunity for a short gondola experience through the narrow streets

Little Venice is a lovely part of Colmar and a must see while you are in this picturesque town. It is smaller than it's cousin, la Petite France in Strasbourg, but just as charming. By all means do the flat bottom boat ride, but heads up when you get to those bridges! Each house is unique and colorful. Really looks... More

Petite Venice is beautiful and we enjoyed having a cocktail while sitting on the Petite Venice at a restaurant. I don't think I would make it a destination unless visiting the surrounding villages in which case it is worth it as they are lovely medieval villages ( frequented by bus tours of seniors.) Saw a high school group take the... More

Simply lovely examples of Alsace architecture: colourful, quaint, old, beautiful. Add water and you have a great place to visit.

I visited Colmar on a River Cruise. Little Venice was the best part of the tour. Quaint houses and stores along the water....beautiful. So much character....I loved it. A nice place to enjoy an afternoon break and soak up just being there !

Little Venice is probably the main attraction of the old town of Colmar. The river flows in a large part of the town, and is surrounded by restaurants, cafes, little gardens and spectacular view points. Sailing on the river is a nice experience, almost like in Venice.

The town of Colmar itself has some cute and interesting places, but Little Venice is wildly over rated. In fact, it's a good example of how one or two photos can be over blown to make some thing look like more than it really is. The water is so stagnant it's disgusting, and really, there are one or two p,aces... More

This is a nice part of Colmar to come and visit. Easy walk from the main Old Town. Not very large so you won't need a lot of time. you can also take a small gondala ride around, i think it was about 8Euros a person. Pretty on a nice day
