Quartier Européen - Orangerie
0.8 miles from city centre
Strikingly modern. This area exudes the cool air of diplomacy, its litter-free streets lined with geometric glass façades. As the centre of European Parliament, it’s not uncommon to see diplomats lunching between sessions in Orangerie Park. The park’s mini zoo and mini farm mean the diplomatic quarter is not strictly for grown-ups.
Places to stay from £28 per night

Strasbourg is the capital of France's Alsace region and showcases some mesmerising medieval architecture in its UNESCO-listed centre, the Grande Île (large island). Due to its location on the eastern border with Germany, it offers a unique cocktail of cultures from both sides. The centrepiece of the old town is the Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame, with its gloating gargoyles, astronomical clock and intricate stained-glass windows. The centre is famous for being pedestrian-friendly, so it's easy to explore on foot or by bike. Each street is lined with crooked timber-framed houses, and as night falls the lantern-lit alleys evoke a fairytale atmosphere.
To delve further into Strasbourg's fascinating history, visit the Palais Rohan, a grand 18th-century palace which is now home to three museums: the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts), Musée Archéologique (Archaeological Museum) and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Museum of Decorative Arts). The nearby Historical Museum is also worth checking out, with plenty of interactive exhibits focusing on the city's early medieval days up until the founding of the European Union.
Strasbourg's magical atmosphere peaks from the end of November until December, when the festive markets appear. These have been held in the city for four centuries and feature arts and crafts, Alsatian Christmas decorations and local specialities like 'Kougelhopf' (a sweet bread usually filled with raisins) and Muenster cheese.

The Cathedral is a must, especially for its astronomical watch. The boat trip is recommendable. Walks along riverside and views from the Vauban Barrage are spectacular. Trams are useful for getting around Strasbourg and even for visiting German town Kehl on the other side of Rhein.
Beautiful city with a mix of old and new sites of interest. It is a lovely place to wander around to find little alleys and nooks and crannies. The Cathedral is stunning and the clock worth hanging about for to see it chime each quarter hour. We didn't have time to visit any museums. We learned a lot from the Parliament Building tour we were lucky enough to catch.
I, who doesn't generally like cities, love Strasbourg - I think it truely holds my soul! The old parts are totally walkable - Petite France and the Cathedral and it's square are probablly my favourite bits.
Pleasantly surprised that we enjoyed Strasbourg. Lovely atmosphere (even in the rain) with big squares and an impressive cathedral. Liked the canal area too. Very impressed with Restaurant Les Chauvin Pere e fils (for lunch) - tapas style. Excellent food.
I loved exploring the Petite France area. And the visit to the European Parliament was cool. The Strasbourg Cathedral was a good place to visit as well. As my hostel was far from the center, I got a day pass, which is quite affordable. However, all the major sights can be explored via foot.
Strasbourg was the least favorite city on our tour. The city has wonder architecture but many streets smelled and this was by far the dirtiest city we visited. We tried to eat next to the cathedral but the service was terrible, both the waiter and manager were rude, were served expired beer that was flat as paper. Not a good experience overall.
