Absolutely Stunning!

We went in Spring and to see the lovely bloom made it the idyllic spot for picture taking and merely sitting on the bench watching the ducks go by.

Very picturesque, middle age-looking part of the centre of Strasbourg. Be prepared to be delighted at the sight of tudor style houses and shimmering canals. Try a tarte flambée to get a taste of regional cuisine!

Definitely something out a fairytale. The architecture, the food, the people, the sounds and smells. You could spend an entire day here. Highly recommended on your things to do, get lost in La Petite!

Walk around this beautiful area for a couple of hours and grab a glass or two of beer from somewhere like the Beer Academy.

Strasbourg has a lot of lovely areas but our favorite was little france where the houses and the canals and the fortifications all create a lovely mix.

There is nothing like an old city without cars. This is what you get with La Petite France. You also get over 30 restaurants within a block and a half. Walking distance to a great museum and Cathedral Notre Dame. If you are on a open day trip, try to time it so you can have dinner at any of... More

Not sure how to describe the prettiest little set of streets, bars, shops and restaurants I think I have ever seen. No wonder this is a protected National Heritage Site. My advice is to look at the pictures and see for yourself. Well worth a very lazy half day walking around, have a few beers and just take in the... More

My phone was stolen out of my front pocket by a professional. One of the really interesting things to go see is the guy who makes pottery. Also be sure to go to the cookie store. It's neat to watch the boats go through the locks, too.
