La Petite France
AUTHENTIC - Places Benjamin Zix and Saint-Thomas
A little advice from Strasbourg
For a postcard photo, head for the lock passage just beside the Place Benjamin Zix. It's a well-known vantage point, but one you'll never tire of!
Petite France is a magical destination whatever the season: authentic half-timbered houses, charming cobbled streets lined with the River Ill, a picturesque swing bridge and a lock from which you can watch the boats come to a halt... the atmosphere is particularly warm. When the city is transformed into the Capital of Christmas, the many decorations that adorn the district are well worth the journey.
The Place Benjamin Zix is home to some wonderful chalets. You'll find everything you need to decorate your home and brighten up your festive table, from pretty candles to delicious herbal teas... in short, everything you need to bring the warmth of this square into your home and enjoy the warmth of long winter evenings.
You'll find the same kind of treasures in Place Saint-Thomas, as well as plenty of treats and tasty hot drinks to comfort the hungry and the cold.
