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.

I was walking through the town, and found this little gem. I went on the boat tour for 6euro, and it was nice but not a must do. Lively atmosphere, people everywhere. Buildings beautiful! Lovely photos indeed.

Such a pretty area with a canal and different coloured houses. Colmar is not a massive town so finding little Venice is easy just follow the water

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

The local trails were a times difficult to follow. Eat early then just wander the streets. Make sure you see little Venice

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 .
