“Nice part of the town”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We use to take a little walk around this part of the town every time we visit Strasbourg. It feels very genuine and there are a lot of nice shops and restaurants with good food. It is very good that the cars almost enterily are not seen.

“Very charming, especially in the early hours of the morning”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

If you like half timbered houses, you shouldn't miss this place. However, if you also value peace and quiet and want to avoid crowds, visit La Petite France early in the morning.

“the nicest part of Strasbourg”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Petit France is the nicest part of Strasbourg. Great atmosphere, small restaurants with tables with a view on the river. Forget about eating with small money. Too many tourists. But for sure you can get good food and a nice atmosphere. I've been in Strasbourg several times in different seasons, and it is always nice to hang around, have a walk and sit outside in the sunset light.

“beautiful architecture - French meets German”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

La Petite France really is a beautiful part of Strasbourg. A leisurely amble around, be it at night or during the day, is very picturesque. The buildings really are beautiful, and the residents and proprietors alike make a lot of effort to enhance their beauty with flowers and other décor. A really beautiful spot in Strasbourg.

“Great for a walking tour!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

The alleys & architecture are enchanting. Be sure to search out the pain d'epices shop, and for a really detailed map of the historical center of Strasbourg, we found on for 3 Euros in a souvenir shop that helped us not to get too lost. I recommend going on a weekday if possible, all of the shops are open & it's not as crowded.
