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...

La Petite France, 67000 Strasbourg, France
This place is like a box of Chocolate Frogs – you’ll never know what you might get. A cobblestone road winding it’s way through medieval buildings and along waterways, past beautiful rows of shops and restaurants – the historic Little France is pretty hangout! Once upon a time, fishermen, tanners and millers lived here in th...

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...

Parc de l'Orangerie, 67000 Strasbourg, France
Any decent city will have a park to which the family can retire to in the weekends for some quality time. But it’s just so much nicer when that need is recognised, anticipated and then fulfilled as well as it can be – like at this park. The main draw here is a tiny zoo featuring birds (swans and storks – you’ll find them nes...

Place Gutenberg, 67000 Strasbourg, France
Though it’s more loved today for the Christmas Market that enchants in wintertime, the place Gutenberg owes its name to the famous inventor of the printing press. It’s a large and picturesque square, and though it doesn’t really have muck to offer (apart from the Statue of Gutenberg and the nearby Chamber of Commerce), it’s ...

This one is different from the other Srasbourg museums. It’s sleeker, more modern, and more relatable.

Barrage Vauban, Strasbourg, France
09:00 am - 07:30 pm
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 comme...

3 Rue de la Flock Blue, 67000 Strasbourg, France
10:30 am - 06:00 pm
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...

1 Bis Rue Philippe Dollinger, 67100 Strasbourg, France
10:00 am - 06:00 pm
This particular kind of attraction has been gaining a lot of popularity since the millennium – where kids can get hands on with science and technology. The name of the place itself, which can be translated as The Ship, is symbolic of the child’s journey through science and technology. The place really does try and reach out to as many c...
