Romantic Hotels in Strasbourg
Stay in one of Strasbourg’s romantic hotels and you’ll be in a typical Alsatian half-timbered building in the historic quarter, particularly in Petite France. Just across the river, a couple of romantic hotels are on the edge of the Contades neighbourhood, a central yet peaceful district, and the quintessentially Alsatian towns just outside Strasbourg are also perfect for romantic breaks, especially the historic town of Obernai.
What to Expect in Strasbourg’s Romantic Hotels
Strasbourg’s romantic hotels are mainly four- and five-stars, so you can expect sophisticated designs and a discreet and personable service. Enjoy breakfast and evening meals in your hotel’s restaurant and finish your evening off with a well-mixed cocktail in its bars. Some hotels also have fitness centres, saunas and outdoor pools.
In the stylish bedrooms, you’ll appreciate the thoughtful touches of bathrobes and slippers, and, for some real romance, indulge in some private dining from the room-service menu.
Exploring Strasbourg’s Grande île
Right in the heart of Strasbourg, on the Grande île island, you’ll find many of Strasbourg’s oldest landmarks. On the eastern side of Grande île, Petite France features some of the city’s oldest timber-framed houses. In the centre of the island, Strasbourg Cathedral’s famous light-red facade is covered in gargoyles and stone carvings. Head inside to join other tourists gathering around the astronomical clock. Every lunchtime you can see the astronomical clock play out biblical scenes as the clock chimes..
Staying out of Strasbourg: Obernai
Only 17 miles out of Strasbourg, the small town of Obernai is a picturesque setting for a romantic break. Direct trains run from the Obernai to Strasbourg regularly and take under 30 minutes. In the Alsatian wine country, Obernai has a number of wineries and distilleries which invite you to take a tour of vineyards and sample some local tipples. Most of Obernai’s central bars and restaurants serve beers and wines from the area, alongside traditional, home-cooked cuisine from the Alsace and Rhine regions.
