I was in Strasbourg for a couple of weeks for work. And one week-end I took a stroll in the area of Le Petite France. It’s a very nice place for a stroll: old houses, nice restaurants and some souvenir shops.

Beautiful architecture of an ancient part of town where different industries use to have their quarters, tanneries, ice making, mills, etc. Cobblestone streets with timbered old houses and churches. Also you can see the boats passing through the locks and also the swing bridge.

Petite France is as its called Petite, before I knew it, I was out of the area. The houses have mostly been turned into restaurants but still retain the charm.

Something for everybody here: the swivelling bridge that lets tour boats through, the locks and the precision steering; details and remnants of 19th and 20th century light urban industries; a covered bridge populated with gargoyles taken down from the cathedral; improbable but genuine half-timbered buildings,...More

There is no parking within the walls of La Petite France. It there is on-street parking nearby and some official car parks. Strasbourg is not very large so nowhere is too far to walk.
