Petite France Quarter

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1988, the attractive Petite France quarter is on Strasbourg’s Grand Île, between two branches of the river, and divided by many canals and bridges into a succession of islands. Historically it was the fishing, milling and tanning district, and its buildings are typically medieval, full of

beautiful Alsace timber and baroque sandstone houses that create the perfect place to wander round and lose yourself. The area is a unique architectural heritage full of postcard images like the St Martin bridge, Place Benjamin Zix, and the Tanners’ House.
