Strasbourg is located in the Bas-Rhin département of France's Alsace region, close to the border with Germany, and is the region's capital. We arrived on what was, sadly for us, a typically damp day in mid-May 2013 - the coldest, wettest Spring in Europe for many years. However, Strasbourg was still very picturesque - and no quartier (nachbarschaft auf Deutsch)... More

Strasbourg is a very pleasant city, and this is perhaps the most pleasant part of the city. Quaint houses with beautiful floral arrangements in front. If you're with children, be sure to take them on the boat ride. It takes about 5 minutes to pass through the lock and then passes the swing bridge. Great way to teach them about... More

Loved walking around in this area. The flowers are beautiful! We ran out of time and didn't get to eat there but there are some lovely looking cafes.

The setting was lovely, the buildings were beautiful and it was bustling with people. I found the flea market interesting and it was great to sit over a cup of coffee and watch the world go by.

Surely visiting Strasbourg you cannot miss that. The most beautiful area in the old town with the water the flowers are dreamy. Walk around to find as many beautiful corners

La Petite France is such a beautiful, picture perfect neighborhood. We enjoyed the views from the water via the Batobus canal tour. We stopped by later on foot to admire the beautiful buildings. Don't worry about getting lost here, you will only find one amazing corner after another.

Yes, it is very pretty but I felt distinctly underwhelmed by the area. Much smaller than I had thought. A quick visit was enough.

This is an area of old Strasbourg around one of the waterways that run through the old centre. Lots of crooked, leaning buildings piled up against one another. It must have been very crowded, smelly & dangerous a couple of hundred years ago, but now it looks pretty & quaint, having been cleaned up, covered in flower baskets and housing... More

Slow paced, rich in history. So much to see! Great restaurants! Take the boat tour and the mini train tour.

We loved La Petite France! Every little street seems to have had its own purpose in history - from tanneries to dressmakers to barbers. There are so many interesting boutiques, charming side streets, restaurants, and hidden treasures. We wandered along the riverbanks, across the many bridges, and through a myriad of cobblestones streets. Plan on spending several hours.
