The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Strasbourg
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Strasbourg, a French city with a typical German name, has long been a bone of contention between the two neighbouring countries. But now it has long since become the unofficial capital of united Europe and the centre of the administrative power of the European Union. Strasbourg is also the intellectual centre of France, with the prestigious Strasbourg University.
The main city of the Alsace region boasts a long and rich history. In the old quarters there are still temples built in the XII century, and the squares are decorated with picturesque half-timbered houses. Strasbourg has many interesting museums, beautiful parks and historical monuments, so the excursion programme promises to be bright and interesting.
