Quartier Européen - Orangerie
0.8 miles from downtown
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.

City-Centre - Petite France
Fancy seeing all of France in one day? See the Alsatian half-timbered houses and quaint bridges in an area known as “La Petite France”. Admire the Notre Dame de Strasbourg Cathedral at its centre, then branch out and explore the side streets.

A touch of nature. Old houses blend with bureaucratic buildings, set to a backdrop of verdant greenery. Discover the Parc de Pourtalès enclosed by Robertsau Forest by foot or bike.

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.

Beautiful town! The Notre Dame cathedral is incredible, and the view from the top of the tower is terrific (300+ steps, fair warning). Le Petit France is incredible charming and picturesque. My brother the photo buff, barely put his camera down the entire time. We had bad weather while we were there (lots and lots of rain), so we were happy to find lots of great little restaurants and bars to relax in.
Beautiful city, unspoilt and ideal for walking around. Don't miss the Orangerie park with free mini zoo and the museum of modern art. Great views of the petit France area from the top of the weir bridge.
there is a lot to see, and yet the river surrounding the town encloses the place in a way that is easy to navigate. The mix of german and french style adds up to sensational architecture. the visitor feels completely safe walking around at night. I WENT TO 7 GREAT MUSEUMS IN TWO DAYS. The food was also excellent. the cathedral has it's own unique color (red tones) and an astronomical clock. Bravo.
I think the town is a very nice town with a beautiful Cathedral and fun to walk around. I think that I loved the little boat tour we did where you can reserve a personal boat that you pilot and take through a route on the river. That was unique and very awesome at the same time. The thing I will say that I didn't like here was the food. Each restaurant I ate at was nothing spectacular and was nothing to really rave about. Each was recommended by the hotels and had decent reviews but I think the worst was when I went to a restaurant that gave me a half cooked cordon bleu. I got to the middle of it and it was cold and raw. I had to stop eating and just wanted to get out of there. Still the town is worth a trip and one I would visit again. Hopefully I'd find a restaurant to lift my spirits after getting only misses the last time out!
The boat tour was excellent-I was able to learn a lot about the history of the town and see many sights to include the EU parliament building. The cathedral of course is gorgeous, and I was lucky enough to come as the Christmas markets were wrapping up so the crowds weren't too bad. There was excellent shopping throughout the town!
Christmas markets and Christmas decoration in all the pedestrian streets were fabulous! Street food is fun to taste. There are some amazing restaurants but be vigilant with the tourist trap restaurants in busy touristy areas. They charged you a reasonable price but food is nothing compare to the real dishes. Some amazing food shop such as chocolate, patisserie, cured meat, cheeses....
