You can’t visit Strasbourg without passing by La Petite France, it’s like going to London without seeing Big Ben! It’s the most instagrable place of Strasbourg, pictures are so beautiful there. Enjoy!!

A beautiful spot either day or night but becomes truly magical during the Christmas season when all the streets are lit up each street outdoing the last. Be prepared for large crowds

Originally this was the tanners' district with all of the waste going into the canals. But today the half-timbered houses are covered with flower boxes and the canals are criss-crossed with bridges and lined with outdoor cafes.

La Petit France is a typical visitors place very cute area and unique buildings, infrastructure and surroundings. I would recommend you walk through the little roads around the area next to the river and souvenir shops.

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.
