About Strasbourg

Including tips for the best time to visit Strasbourg

Strasbourg is the capital of France's Alsace region, and its proximity to Germany creates a unique blend of cultures. Its UNESCO-listed center, the Grande Île, features incredible medieval architecture, but the old town's centerpiece is the Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame, with its stone gargoyles, astronomical clock, and stained-glass windows. The center is famously pedestrian-friendly, perfect to explore either on foot or bike. When night falls over the lantern-lit alleys, all lined with timber-framed houses, the city takes on a fairytale air.

Learn all about Strasbourg's rich history with a visit to the Palais Rohan – an 18th-century palace 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). Don't miss the nearby Historical Museum, featuring exhibits on the city's early medieval days up until the founding of the European Union.

Strasbourg's magical atmosphere reaches its peak from November through December when the winter markets appear. They've been held in the city for four centuries and sell Alsatian Christmas decorations, artisinal crafts, and local specialities like "Kougelhopf" (a sweet bread filled with raisins) and Muenster cheese.

pittoresque, charming, historic and a base to visit other places. Only downside is the lack of authentic restaurants anymore. Postive point is that train station is close to old city and area is modern and clean

Very nice city to visit, great food, wine and architectural views. It's quite a medium size city with atmosphere of small village. I'd recommend to stay inside the island close to the Little France, where you could do almost everything walking.

Transportation is terrible!

April 30, 2019

Transportation is terrible! Every shop closes too early, you can't find anything in the evening. People are okay but not so good acting. Old houses and river-canals was amazing and there were so many cyclists because cycling road are so nice all around the city. I liked this about cycling. The prices are so high

Great city for walking and spending time immersed in its beauty, history, architecture and the many great sights. Outside of the city, plenty of parks, amusement areas, walking trails with family and friends. Loved it..

April 27, 2019

Landmarks in Strasbourg are astonishingly beautiful and represent the perfect mix between the French and German culture which evolved into its own Alsacian style. The food choices are also wide going from Choucroute with Wädele to Lamala, Spätzle, etc. There are many museums that can also be cheaply accessed with a single pass. The most interesting ones are the ones about Alsacian or Strasbourg's History, but there are also options for the little kids, art lovers, and so on. As the second biggest student city in France we expected the nightlife to be more alive but apparently everyone went back to their original region during the Easter holidays. So in the end, we didn't get to do allnighters. Also, many people in Strasbourg go to Kehl in Germany to go out. They have a direct tram to go there until a certain hour. I'm sure there were more things to see outside of the city in the country side, but we didn't have the time to do everything we wanted.

Very nice city, with a beautiful and preserved architecture combining french and german styles. Its full of tourist so walking in the center or around the cathedral can be kind of annoying, as well as near the famous photo spot in petite france. As you can imagine, by being France and Strasbourg the place where the European Council and parlament has its offices, I found it kind of expensive. Place has a lot of bars and restaurants with a good atmosphere and you can walk alongside the river and have nice views from there.
