History comes alive on the streets of Strasbourg, home to one of Europe’s largest medieval quarters. Here you will find cobblestone streets and timber-framed houses that date back centuries. Strasbourg is also a place where the past and present collide, as reflected by the modern glass building that houses the European Parliament, located not far from the Strasbourg Cathedral that was completed in 1439.

What To Do

Strasbourg Cathedral – This UNESCO World Heritage Site and symbol of the city was once the tallest building in the world. The cathedral, aka Notre-Dame de Strasbourg, is one of the finest examples of late Gothic architecture, and took nearly 3 centuries to complete.

La Petite France – Petite France is a romantic tourist hub brimming with cobblestone streets, canals and remarkably preserved half-timbered houses. La Petite France, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also home to authentic Alsatian restaurants and cafes.

Barrage Vauban – This historic fortified bridge spans the River Ill. The 17th-century structure has a viewing terrace on its roof where visitors can see across picturesque Petite France.
