Over the centuries and with Europe’s turbulent history, Strasbourg has repeatedly wandered back and forth between Germany and France. As a sign of European reconciliation, it is now the seat of the European Parliament and numerous other European institutions. And this eventful history has left its mark, which can be found all over the city. Typical examples of architecture can be found from every epoch, the Alsatian cuisine combines the down-to-earth, hearty German with French finesse and the local language is a strange mixture of German and French. In addition, one of the largest universities in France attracts international students from near and far.
There is a lot to marvel at and discover in every season and in every weather. Stroll through the old town, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a whole. Discover the many faces of this city on a boat tour around the old city center and into the Europaviertel. Feel the lively vibrancy of the European capital while enjoying a culinary delicacy from the region on one of the numerous terraces or in the restaurants!
