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.

  • Its lovely to walk around and its beautiful and charming, and there are small waterways, and its partly pedestrian, but its definitely not at all like Venice.  more »
  • This is the highlight of any Colmar visit and while Colmar is quite nice, I would really recommend you to take a trip to Riquewihr (about 20 minutes by car from Colmar). This little town is even more....  more »
  • Very nice spot in Colmar. Bit too overcrowded by tourists.
  • Its like Colmar at Bukit Tinggi Malaysia but its much bigger & better
