This is the most picturesque and romantic district of Strasbourg. The alleys offer a succession of old half-timbered houses and, thanks to canals, the river Ill gives visitors the feeling of strolling in Venice. Fluvial tours of 70 minutes with explanations in several languages are available.

Do & See

The historical centre, surrounded by the charming river Ill, is the real marvel of Strasbourg. It comprises the "Petite France," "la place Kléber" and the cathedral area, which are all perfect places for strolling, improving one’s mind, shopping, relaxing outside cafés or even having parties.
