Colmar is a small town that offers a very good hotel scene, with the possibility of staying in charming old establishments.
If you plan to visit during the Christmas Markets, however, it is essential to book well in advance: in fact, the town is literally taken by storm by tourists and finding accommodation at an acceptable price at the last moment is very difficult.
The town of Colmar is divided into microscopic districts and Petit Venise is certainly one of the most picturesque and charming, overlooking the canals from which boat tours depart.
It is definitely recommended for a romantic stay for couples: corners that leave one breathless for their beauty and the possibility of reaching every attraction on foot in a few minutes.
This corner of Colmar is home to most of the most important medieval and Renaissance buildings to admire and visit: from the Maison Pfister to the Bartholdi museum.
It is therefore recommended for those who wish to visit Colmar in a short time while remaining in the heart of the city.
Less well known than the Petit Venise, this is another very picturesque corner of Colmar, characterised by very tall houses with attics that were once used for drying hides. At the time, it was a real village within the city.
Prices are slightly lower here and you can find less touristy places.
