Crossroads of European Culture
Situated on the banks of the River Rhine, Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace region of France. The medieval city center, Grande Île, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and houses the glorious sandstone Strasbourg Cathedral and picturesque timber-framed buildings.
The Cathedral of Our Lady is the tallest medieval building in Europe and one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture. It features a remarkable façade, one of the largest astronomical clocks in the world, stunning stained glass windows, and a terrace with panoramic city views.
Enjoy a pleasant walk in the medieval streets of the old town, or visit the charming Petite-France district. Here are some of the range of Strasbourg restaurants serving Alsatian specialties like beef and pork stew with potatoes and carrots, paired with a local beer or regional white wine.
At the crossroads of European culture, cosmopolitan Strasbourg is home to numerous international organizations including the European Parliament, as well as one of the oldest European universities.
