Gorgeous quaint little place. Don't forget your camera! The flowers are lovely and add to the charm of this beautiful delight. There are many gift shops and restaurants spotted around. The little touring train that goes round Colmar also rides through here. Do not miss out if you are coming to Colmar!

The view and the atmosphere is somehow Italian -a short promenade along the canal and between the buildings, the flowers and the small cafes with the music band playing clasics. Very nice and a recommended place to have a rest in this atmosphere.

If your in Colmar and already in the old town part, you cannot help but walk around this very beautiful little area. If some of the many tourists get out of the way, you may even be able to get a nice photo for yourself and family! Good indoor food market on the same location.

Colmar is one of the prettiest towns in France and the reason is little venice. This is a small area but the houses are lovely and decorated with flowers and sitting on a canal. The whole street is not very long but what's there makes for a great visit.

I am not comparing this place with the main attractions of Venice, such as the Rialto bridge or the grand canal. Compared to the narrow alleys and canal views of actual Venice, I found little Venice in Colmar more romantic and prettier.

A great place to explore on foot. take your camera as this and nearby Fishermaen's Quarter are feasts for the eyes. Also a great place to eat or stop for a drink in one of the many places on offer from traditional ' Winstubs' to brasseries and cafes. Remember France pretty well closes for lunch from 12 till 2pm so... More

This is the most impressive part of impressive Colmar town. Locals and tourists, musicians playing a music, old France with German influence everywhere in old houses, cuisine and atmosphere. Lost in the narrow streets, shops souvenirs, sip the coffee or drink, slowly flowing on boats, flowers everywhere, taking a pictures of colorful houses .... This is a fairy tail or... More

Very attractive area but not very big, you could only spend a couple of hours here at most although the covered market is good.
