Crossroads of Europe

Strasbourg is famous for its beautiful historical center, the Grande Île, which was the first city center classified entirely as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Strasbourg is one of the nine largest cities in France with nearly half a million inhabitants in the metropolitan area crossing the river to the German city of Kehl, on the eastern bank of the Rhine River. Strasbourg is ideal for cycling as the city center is flat, and there are plenty of bike lanes and bike paths. You can rent bikes at Vélhop kiosks stationed throughout the city. Adding a few days here to your itinerary will allow you to see the city when it's calmest, first thing in the morning and during the evening.

The tourist office sells a variety of self-guided walking tours featuring medieval, renaissance, modern, and contemporary discoveries. You'll find good traditional restaurants in Petite France serving Alsatian white wine, such as Gewürtztraminer, Riesling, and Pinot Gris alongside local fish, an Alsace tradition. Petite France is the name given to the small area you can explore between the rivers, just south of the Grande Île, and home to some of the city's prettiest and most photogenic streets and buildings, with half-timbered houses leaning over narrow cobbled streets.

Where to stay in Strasbourg

La Petite France is by far the choice district for a bed and breakfast. For a longer stay, consider the Grand Île district, just north of La Petite France, where all the major architectural sites and museums are located.
