Travel Guide
Strasbourg showing a river or creek, a city and boating

This city in France’s Alsace region offers world-famous wines, fine architecture, beautiful parks and a thriving culinary scene.

The French city of Strasbourg offers historical architecture, a culinary scene that is amongst the best in the region and world-famous wines.

Modern Strasbourg is characterized by its medieval center, museums and award-winning restaurants. Getting around is easy as Strasbourg’s streets are flat and perfect for walking. Alternatively, rent a bike and follow the city’s cycling trails, which form the largest network in France.

The Grande Île (Large Island) is Strasbourg’s historic core and is encircled by the River Ill. In 1998, it became the first city center to receive World Heritage status. A series of bridges cross the River Ill, and connect Grande Ile to the rest of the city. On Grande Île you’ll find major city attractions, including the Gothic Cathédrale de Notre-Dame de Strasbourg (Strasbourg Cathedral) and Kammerzell House, one of the city’s most famous buildings. Don’t miss out on the Petite France district. This area is known for the half-timbered homes that line its water-level streets. Nearby, at Vauban Dam you can enjoy views of Strasbourg and its waterways. Spend an afternoon enjoying the gardens of Parc de l’Orangerie or Parc de la Citadelle.

Place Kléber, a large square in the middle of Stasbourg’s commercial center, is ideal for people-watching and admiring centuries-old buildings. Strasbourg was founded by the Romans in 12 B.C. The city passed between French and German hands during the 19th and 20th centuries before being liberated by General Leclerc in 1944.

Learn about the culture of the Alsace region at the Alsatian Museum. Find work by Monet and Picasso at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Younger visitors will enjoy the hands-on exhibits at Le Vaisseau science and technology museum. Entrance to all Strasbourg’s museums is free on the first Sunday of each month.

Strasbourg’s culinary scene draws from the best of French and German cuisine. Choose from one of the many restaurants serving traditional cuisine and enjoy specialities such as choucroute garnie (dressed sauerkraut) or baeckeoffe (marinated meats cooked with vegetables for at least three hours) with a glass of local wine.
