Little Venice, Colmar

Must see · Neighborhood · Other
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.

  • Why did it take this long to find collar? This town is so much better than Strasbourg. You can walk the town easy with lots of shopping, places to eat and bars. Great jumping off to tour the wine...  more »
  • The clue is in the name - Petite. Do not expect Venetian grandeur but it is a very beautiful area with lots of interesting cafes and restaurants. Easier to navigate than Venice.  more »
  • This is one of the most picturesque parts of town and one that you will surely want to visit. We spend a couple of hours wandering around here and came back at night for dinner. Just lovely.  more »
