Place de la Cathedrale, 67000 Strasbourg, Franc e
10:00 am - 05:30 pm
One of Europe’s most stunning examples of Gothic Architecture, the cathedral is built on the site of a small roman temple. The Bishop who commissioned it in 1015 had wanted a Romanesque influence, but during the renovations in the 12th Century, Alsace was in the tight grip of Gothic influence. The building truly belongs to the city; after the...

2 Place du Chateau, 67000 Strasbourg, France
10:00 am - 06:00 pm
Quite possibly the most important building in the city – the palace holds three museums of significance - the Archaeological Museum (basement), the Museum of Decorative Arts (ground floor) and the Museum of Fine Arts (first and second floor). But that’s not how it started off. Finished in 1742, the place has been residen...

23-25 Quai Saint-Nicolas, 67000 Strasbourg, France
12:00 pm - 06:00 pm
The museum is an act of defiance – its purpose was to preserve the city’s authentic identity in the face of forced Germanisation. Once in 1917, it seemed like this ‘Den Francophile’ was in danger of being shut down but an intervention by the town municipality saved it. If that sounds severe, don’t worry; these guys pre...

Barrage Vauban, Strasbourg, France

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.

There are two others churched dedicated to St. Peter in Strasbourg – a Lutheran-Catholic and a Romanesque. This is the Protestant one, which is also the reason it’s called “Young St. Peter’s”. Built on the site of a 7th century Columban Church (the remains of which are stills seen), the church is quite important to Str...
