“A wealth of history”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Petite France has such a wealth of history from its beginnings as the impoverished part of Strasbourg to its status as a thriving district. There are many atmospheric cafes and restaurants in or close to some stunning architecture. The narrow streets create an intimate atmosphere which is delightful.

During our visit we went to a 'light show' projected onto the Barrage which started at 22.15 and lasted a spell-binding 10 minutes, taking us through the history of the city.

A great place to spend a few hours soaking up the wealth of history.

“We only had a glimpse but enjoyed what we saw.”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

It was really just a taster on what was on offer but I really enjoyed the different architecture and of course the canals. Hopefully we will return and take a ride on one of the boat trips.

“QUAINT”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

A part of Strasbourg one just has to visit. Wandering through those historic streets with wonderful houses bordering the river's edge, was amazing.
