STRASBOURG

Overview

The capital of Europe, Strasbourg is a dynamic and vibrant city. Following the Second World War the city was chosen as the European capital and it stands as a shining symbol of reconciliation between peoples. Home to numerous international organizations and with its wealth of its heritage sites, the entire town centre has been listed as UNESCO World Heritage.

Museums, theatres, opera, concert halls, festivals… embedded in a medieval past and a radical future, Strasbourg is a cultural pearl. Must-sees on a trip to Strasbourg are The Petite French Quarter (an Alsatian an atmosphere and charm characterised by narrow lanes, canals and locks); Cathedral Notre Dame (an absolute masterpiece of Gothic art); The European Parliament (two buildings, an ellipsis and a circle representing the exchange between democracy and power); Batorama boat tour (a gentle glide past Strasbourg’s main places of attraction).
