Strasbourg's exceptional heritage gives it a particularly romantic atmosphere. From the narrow streets of Petite France to the magnificent Cathedral, from the quays of the Island to the squares of the Grande Ile, let yourself be seduced by this city.
- Discover the Grande Île
The historic heart of the city, the Grande Île is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Grande Île is very representative of what a medieval city was. Within a small area, you will find Notre-Dame Cathedral, Place Gutenberg, Place Kléber, Kammerzell House and the Palais Rohan. All are must-sees in Strasbourg.
- Visit the cathedral
At 142 metres high at the tip of its spire, Strasbourg Cathedral is the second highest cathedral in France after Notre-Dame de Paris. Built entirely of pink sandstone, admire the interior with its magnificent stained glass windows and the beautiful astronomical clock. Climb the 330 steps to its panoramic platform and be amazed by the view over the city.
- Stroll through Petite France
Petite France is located in the southwest of the Grande Île. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site and offers a charming landscape, typical of Alsace. Stroll between the half-timbered houses, admire the Vauban dam and the covered bridges.
Let yourself be enchanted by the picturesque charm of this district.
- Discover the historic cellars of the Strasbourg civil hospices
Dating back to the Middle Ages, this place was probably created to store the bottles of wine offered as payment for treatment. Since 1995, they have been in use again, storing the delicious Alsatian wines. The cellar of the Hospices Civils de Strasbourg contains the oldest wine in barrels in the world. Dating back to 1472, it has only been tasted three times so far, during historical events.
