I've visited twice and I'm sure I'll feel the same the next time I visit too. The architecture of the buildings in this part of the isle of Strasbourg is awe inspiring.

Amazing place with lots of old beautiful buildings. If you're a tourist looking for some souvenirs, there are lots of souvenir shops full of some cute presents, which are quite cheaper then those in the centre of the city. There is also a Christmas shop that totally worth visiting. When you enter it, it feels like you're in a Christmas... More

This area of Strasbourg is beautiful during the day but stunning at night as all the bridges are lit. Best to just stroll around at your own pace, you don't need a guide.

What better way than to circle the “Petite France” by boat before walking the narrow and mostly pedestrian streets. The Petite France is an area located on an island of the river Ill, and the ancient houses surrounding the cathedral are in the typical Alsatian style. There are discoveries to be made at every corner: covered bridges, locks, castles, churches,... More

The historical buildings, the small streets, and people watching. I enjoyed sitting at one of the outdoor cafes sipping a coffee and eating a fruit tart. A lot of people and a tourist tram creeping through the crowds, it was completely out of place and too big to be going through the public areas.

We were lucky enough to be traveling through Strasbourg on Thanksgiving day. Many of the shops and streets were decorated for the Christmas holidays. Everything is so old and quaint. Plan your meal times carefully though because many of the restaurants are closed between 2-7pm. We found that people in this area are very structured about their meal times but... More

Very neat little part of Strasbourg with narrow alleys, bridges accross the river and nice shops. Must be a hassle to get someplace to sit outside in summer.

Truly, a piece of history. I recommend that you get an audio guide at the tourist office to appreciate the history of the area, but a stroll through aimlessly is good too!

My boyfriend and I traveled back to Strasbourg to visit the renowned Christmas markets. The markets have been on since 1570 and draw a huge crowd to Strasbourg. The most beautiful and quaint part of the markets are located in La Petite France. The architecture is fab there, so loaded with Christmas trees and lights makes it look like a... More
