Petite France

Discover the charms of this emblematic district


/ Small

La Petite France, with its five arms and peaceful quayside, is the ideal place for an original and soothing stroll. The colours and timber-framed facades come together in a gentle ballet of reflections on the River Ill. Take advantage of the charm of the surrounding area to fall in love with this district that is as atypical as it is charming. Discover the rue du Bain-aux-Plantes, the Place Benjamin Zix, the covered bridges and the Maison des Tanneurs with its windows decorated with bright geraniums. This is undoubtedly the city's most picturesque district, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988.

/ Museum of
decorative arts

Discover Strasbourg's decorative arts at the museum dedicated to them. A magnificent series of ceremonial rooms in a row form a cocoon for this universe. Paintings, furniture, ceramics, ironwork and even clocks and watches.

Strasbourg's central square, Place Kléber, is the place to be for all kinds of gatherings. It is both modern, having been refurbished in 2007, and heir to the city's prestige, with its surrounding buildings dating back several centuries.
