This corner of Colmar is lovely with beautiful houses, lots of stores and restaurants. At the end of November everything was decorated for Xmas so such a lovely place to be. The covered market shouldn’t be missed.

Hi there I'm sorry I can help you with that one, as we travelled by car. The railway station (La Gare) was right next to our hotel and 10 Mins walk from Little Venice. Hope this helps a little? Cheers David
