Create an itinerary including Palais de Rohan
Hailed as one of the most important buildings within the city of Strasbourg in Alsace France, Palais de Rohan stands as a monument to local baroque architecture. Over the course of its history, it has housed three of the most important museums located within the city limits: the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Decorative Arts, and the Museum of Fine Arts. The Galerie Robert Heitz, a city gallery, is located within a side wing of the palace. Originally commissioned by Cardinal Aarmand Gaston Maximilen de Rohan, Bishop of Strasbourg, palace architect Joseph Massol erected the castle between 1731 and 1742. Come walk the same halls Napoléon Bonaparte strolled back in 1805, 1806, and 1809. The castle itself has seen its fair share of tragedies, including a fire in 1870, and later, English and American bombs during the 1940s. The sprawling architectural masterpiece was restored in the 1990s and opened its doors to an adoring public.

  • I was at the museum for fine arts. The ticket cost 3.50€ for students under 25 years of age. The fine arts section isn't too big, and it mostly consists of biblical art. I liked the still life best. The floors are very creaky which makes walking around a little uncomfortable and loud. Sadly, the second floor was closed when I was there, and I probably would have liked those paintings the most (you could see them from afar). Sadly the plaques are all French only.
  • Nice crib
  • 3 museums in one place. archaeology, art and history about the Palace. still good, a lot to see but not the best museum I was in. I think the most impressive thing was the Palace itself
  • In the inside of the palace there are 3 museums. We have visited only the archeological museum with some impressive artifacts. The fee is not that high and children can enter for free.
  • Nice, efficient way to visit three great museums in one awesome space.
