La Petite France

La Petite France is the picturesque quarter of Strasbourg, on the banks of the river Ill. 

Don’t miss:

• the 16th and 17th-century half-timbered houses (such as the Maison des Tanneurs)

• the narrow streets

• the lock and the swing bridge

• the platform of the Vauban Dam : for a panoramic view of the Cathedral, the city skyline and the course of the canals

• the Ponts couverts with its four 14th-century towers, which remain from the former battlements

• the little house in the middle of the Ponts couverts, with an arbor that is covered in wisteria in spring

• the Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, also known as MAMCS

 For the kids: the playground in Square des Moulins
