In the beautiful town of Strasbourg you find La Petite France, a historic place with amazing architecture and canals passing through in every turn! I must say I enjoyed it even more than Venice. A great place to visit with your better half and enjoy traditional French cuisine!

We didn't do a formal tour, just walked around on our own. Great architecture, plenty of shops with a variety of stuff, and many places to take a break and get a coffee or glass of wine. It has the feel of a cross between Germany with the "Ginerbread houses", France with the food and culture, and Venice with the... More

This area is hard to miss (so don't) and really attractive. Great for strolling, people watching, connecting through to other attractions and stopping for a bit to eat or drink. Take it all in because I am going to bet you can't get this at home. ENJOY!

Just love the restaurants and cafes here. Architecture of the buildings is beautiful, the running water all around gives good energy. Great place to just walk around or on a sunny day to sit outside drink some good Alsatian wine and enjoy the charm of this area

I loved the beautiful architecture, the traditional houses are just stunning. Some houses were built as early as in the 17th and 18th centuries, which is breathtaking. The canals are also cute, I took a boat tour, and it's great even in winter. As other major tourist attractions, La Petite France is overcrowded with tourists and, as a result, the... More

Spent a whole day walking around this part of town. Buy the self guided audio guide from the TI and you can enjoy the beauty architecture paired with great commentary. Plus, you can stop and get a sandwich or two at noon. Particularly loved the canal irrigation system area. You can enjoy the view of the riverside accompanied by the... More

Colourful half-timbered houses, small streets, bridges, amazing view to the canals, lovely, romantic atmosphere, happy people going here and there, nice restaurants, a fantastic place to spend your time. Add the christmas markets and the decorations during the christmas period! Don't miss it.
