Petite France, Strasbourg

The city’s most endearing neighbourhood, and one of the best-preserved old quarters in Europe, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The classic scene here is of creaking half-timbered houses, several storeys high and reflected in the waters of a canal or the River Ill.

The whole district is woven with waterways, which in old times powered the city’s flour mills and gave a livelihood to freshwater fishermen.

There are lots of places where you can try typical Alsatian cuisine, if you don’t mind paying a little premium for this romantic location.
