Explore Strasbourg

Dominating the city centre is the Cathédrale de Notre-Dame with its single delicate spire piercing the sky. The spire's viewing platform affords superb views of the old town, and, in the distance, the Vosges to the west and the Black Forest to the east. The interior is spectacular as well, with its nave and stained-glass windows. The cathedral's two most popular sights, the Pilier des Anges, and the very large and impressive astrological clock.

Other highlights include beautiful La Petite France, the renowned 13th century Pillier des Anges, Musee de l’Oeuvre Notre Dame, Place de la Republique, Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art, Musee Alsacien, Palais Rohan, and Palais de l’Europe. The city’s two main squares, Place Kleber and Place Gutenburg, are home to the seats of the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights. The city also features fine cuisine and a range of exciting nightlife.

South of Strasbourg is the picturesque town of Colmar, famed for its Gothic architecture and museums. The former Dominican convent is now the site of the incredible Musee d’Unterlinden with its unsurpassed collection of Gothic art, featuring works by Matthais Grunewald. Explore the narrow winding streets, absorbing the atmosphere of the Gothic period buildings and marvel at the famous Isenheim Alterpiece.

The best way to discover the beauty of the surrounding countryside, towns and villages is to take the scenic Route du Vin, or ‘Wine Route’, which follows the base of the magnificent Vosges mountain range. Sample the vineyards and taste the traditional, unspoiled culture of the Alsacien people. Nearby, nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts can explore the splendor of the Black Forest and the peaks and valleys of the Vosges Mountains. Alsace is particularly enchanting in the winter, with a variety of events and festivals taking place.
