Strasbourg is pretty cool in general and this area "Petit France" is a very well conserved place where you can eat in nice restaurants and walk around

Incredibly beautiful and quaint, we walked around and just soaked it all in for hours and hours. Strasbourg is a fascinating city of German and French influences, and you can feel it all in La Petite France.

Make sure when visiting Strasbourg, you take some time to wander the streets of the Petite France district. Picturesque and beautiful narrow, paved streets with window boxes full of red geraniums. Little shops selling their souvenirs and other wares, eateries and more. Cross the bridges that are also decorated with pretty flowers and wander about enjoying the old buildings. Beautiful... More

Lovely picturesque place and would definitely recommend doing the boat trip you get to see so much more. Lovely places to eat and drink and also a lovely park for the kids.

Along with the cathedral, La Petite France is the "must see" in Strasbourg. It is an absolutely charming quarter in this wonderfully charming city. You will swear that you are in Epcot, because it looks like it was all built by Disney. But it is the real deal. Each building is colorful and unique. Your camera will get a workout... More

Every visit to Strasbourg must include this fascinating quarter of the city. The river, the water flows, the bridges, the colorful half timbered buildings, the intimate coffee houses, the masses of flowers and greenery - to enjoy more and more. Not to miss.

La Petite France is a pittoresque area with lots of old houses. You can also visit the old hospital and walk along the river. There is a cozily atmosphere between the old timbered houses and you can find some nice cafes/bakkeries/restaurants.

Very pretty area of Strasbourg, timbered houses similar to those in Colmar. Some of the path by the river is closed off at the moment but plenty to see. Took the boat trip around the Ile, very interesting with a potted history of Strasbourg delivered in many languages. If you visit on a sunny day I'd recommend the open top... More
