One of the must see places in France, very similar to Colmar town. La Petite France area was a lot smaller than we expected but it was rather beautiful and certainly worth exploring. Spend time walking around to get the most out of this area....More

I enjoyed being there and seeing these typical German medieval half-timbered houses, it’s so atmospheric! You can eat there because the place is full of cafes, restaurants with local cuisine. Sadly, it’s really small - The Real Petit France.

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.
