Strasbourg
Travel Guide

Exceptional architecture, European institutions and a rich culture and history make Strasbourg a must-visit destination.

Strasbourg is a typical Alsatian city on the left bank of the Rhine. You’ll be enchanted by its historic centre, a UNESCO world heritage site, on the "Grande île", which is home to beautiful architecture. The Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg, the four churches and the Palais Rohan, the former prince-bishops' residence, form a unique area that represents the various functions of the Mediaeval city, as well as Strasbourg's development between the 15th century and the 18th century.

For an international perspective visit the European Parliament or the Council of Europe. Certain groups, such as lawyers and law students, are afforded the privilege of visiting the European Court of Human Rights. However, check the relevant institution's website beforehand, as booking is compulsory for some visits.

Next, explore the city's renowned cultural establishments and catch a play in one of the four rooms of the National Theatre or an opera at the Opéra de Strasbourg, the home of the Opéra national du Rhin. The National and University Library, a stunning building housing rare collections, offers free access and guided tours.

In December, the city takes on a fairy-tale appearance with its illuminations and over 300 chalets of its famous Christmas market. Get into the festive spirit with this authentic and welcoming traditional market, which is one of the oldest and largest in Europe.

Strasbourg has excellent public transport, with efficient tram and bus services. The city also has around 350 miles of cycle lanes and offers a bicycle rental service, Vélhop.

Strasbourg is a city with lots to offer, attracting visitors all year round.
