All reviews the river half timbered houses fairy tale cobblestone streets charming area petite france lots of restaurants walk around every corner old town boat trip beautiful architecture on foot barrage vauban christmas market visiting strasbourg stroll
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.
It is also called 'The Tanners Quarter' and is where the river splits into a number of canals and there are narrow cobbled streets and winding alleys. It is very picturesque and the half-timbered houses are over 300 years old.
It forms part of the...More

This was my favorite area in Strasbourg. This picturesque neighborhood boasts lovely canals, beautiful houses, and historic buildings. Originally this area housed a hospital used to treat soldiers returning from war with Syphilis. We returned to this area to explore more after our tour to...More
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.
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

well, to start with Cathedral & petite France, since you'd be there by car, best option is parking parcus Gutenberg. Situated in from of the cathedral, just about 50-70m from its entrance. From the cathedral, petite France is at short walking distance of about 10' . In any case, once in the city center and if Gutenberg parking is full, keep in mind that there are several options around of more municipal parking round the block. Just keep eyes open on "P" signs. Availability of numbered free places is always displayed. For the European parliament well, depends. I'd rather recommend leaving your car at the down town parking and reaching it by tram. Just a short trip of bout 15' from the city center. I just don't remember the tram line but I guess it should be A or B, both crossing city center. It won't be that easy to reach by car and park just very next to the parliament due to security measures, especially when monthly summit takes place.
