La Petit Venise

Petit Venise Colmar France

Address: Quai de la Poissonnerie, 68000 Colmar

There are good reasons why this location is known as Little Venice. Half-timbered houses line canals on both sides offering the visitor a very romantic and picturesque view.

The district starts behind the Koïfhus and runs through the fishmonger’s district and ends at the bridges of Turenne and Saint-Pierre. This section of Colmar was once inhabited by a rural community growing grapes and produce.

Boatmen also lived here to be near their vessels. Boat rides are possible to take and cost around 7€ per person. The boats accommodate 7 to 9 people and parking is located near the landing. The address where you can pick up the boat is 10 rue de la Herse, 68000 Colmar.
