Must see · Neighborhood · Other
Criss-crossed by the canals of the River Lauch, Little Venice formerly served as the butcher's, tanner's, and fisherman's quarter. Originally a rural wine-producing community, commercial gardeners and fishermen inhabited the canal area, which is now the city center of the small town. You can charter a romantic boat to float around the canals and gain a picturesque perspective of the half-timbered houses.

  • Only few places can be compared to this beautiful little district in Colmar. Flowers, channels and little characteristic bars are the perfect ingredients for a romantic walk in Little Venice  more »
  • This is a must see when in Colmar. Loved the colourful historical buildings and how they were reflected on the waters. Best to visit during a clear blue day.  more »
