Beautiful half timbered houses, shops and restaurants. Very romantic and well worth a visit. Lots of restaurants and touristy shops. Also can be viewed from the boat trip which gives you a different perspective.

We visited as a part of our Viking River Cruise. I am a bit of a French junkie (family history on both sides) and am absolutely smitten with Alsace. The walks were gorgeous, the people friendly and overall, just a wonderful day. Take advantage of all the little bakeries everywhere!

The museum provides a nice glimpse of daily life in Alsace, with a good mix of home furnishing displays, art and religion exhibits. The English guide provided considerably less information than would have been helpful, and the layout of the museum was a bit confusing. Still, worth a visit.

This place is amazing, we went in June (sorry for the late report) and it wasn't that crowded to be fair, the people were very friendly and helpful, food was great but try not to eat near the church to be honest, we had lunch there once and it wasn't that good (see my restaurant reviews.) and if you like...

If you did not visit Petite France then you also did not visit Strasburg. Nice houses, nice cafes, very peaceful atmosphere (except the high season). You better go there very early, have a walk there and fine a place to have your small breakfast. Until the tourist mass comes, you are done ;)

Loved this beautiful, quaint, old town with German and French architecture and Alsatian cuisine entertained with canals, cobblestone streets, ethnicities and a grand gothic cathedral in its midst. Charming although we did encounter rain and fall-like weather even though it's August 😄 A bit touristy and parking is challenging. Lots of one-way streets. Walking around in the evening is gorgeous... More

and stroll around, have a coffee or lunch, be sure and see the farmer's market too. The bridges and the dam are also great - be sure and go 'upstairs' on the dam to see the view and the plants.

It is a nice old district in Strasbourg old town. Just worth a little walk but you will just find restaurants and shops for tourists. Go there, but do not forget the rest of downtown.

La Petite France is an area that has many eateries, souvenir shops, and museums. The area has the distinctive architecture that I would say is not French but a fusion of Flemish and Germanic. During the warmer months the bridges and walkways have colourful flowers potted on them and nice cafes to sit and take in the atmosphere. At least... More
