Barrage Vauban - Review
Neat to the La Petit France area lies this weir – a structure several stories high, built in the late 17th century to protect the city. The impressive Vauban Dam (Great Lock), can flood the entire southern part of town if needed. A terrace on top of the dam is a wonderful viewpoint, offering a panoramic view of the canals. Many visitors comment on the relaxing atmosphere of the place and many more delight in photography – as they well should, for the terrace offers magnificent sights no matter what the time of the day is. The building’s main levels house a number of sculptures, which is a treat, especially since Strasbourg museums are rarely free.

Barrage Vauban, Strasbourg Reviews
The covered bridge was beautiful for a late afternoon walk on the way to get dinner at one of the restaurants within a short distance. The bridge is on the River walk which goes across other bridges in the area and is a generally beautiful walk that I highly recommend if you have 10 minutes to spare. The bridge itself has a lot of history behind it that can be found online or on a few plaques around the area.
The whole area is great to walk around. We took the top path over this bridge. Great views.
From the top is the best view of the city. You can get there easily from the train station by going past the modern art museum. If you're in Strasbourg for only an hour or two, this is a great, free way to send a connection.
It’s so peaceful and beautiful to be in a place like this... it’s located in the heart of Strasbourg in France 🇫🇷 which is one of the capitals of the European Union 🇪🇺... must visit a small Germanic- French town near the German border city Kehl on the other side of river Rhine.
Great place to visit with friends or just by yourself, to read a book surrounded by water and beautiful buildings
