Little Venice, Colmar

4.5
Criss-crossed by the canals of the River Lauch, Little Venice formerly served as the butcher's, tanner's, and fisherman's quarter. Originally a rural wine-producing community, commercial gardeners and fishermen inhabited the canal area, which is now the city center of the small town. You can charter a romantic boat to float around the canals and gain a picturesque perspective of the half-timbered houses.

  • In a pleasant town a rendezvous point on the river with Venetian-style boats. Very touristy. It's nice to look at the many tourists who do everything.
