Learn More about Strasbourg

The city of Strasbourg is dynamic, cultural and has nature just around the corner. Its cuisine, its famous Christmas market, its bars and restaurants make Strasbourg a success. It is a city where it is very pleasant to stroll. The covered bridges, the Petite France district, the Palais des Rohan, the Notre-Dame cathedral or the Kammerzelle house are not to be missed. Museums, monuments and tourist sites are almost all located in the heart of the city, so walking is the easiest and most pleasant way to discover Strasbourg. You can also opt for a bicycle, because with its 560km of bicycle paths, Strasbourg is one of the most accessible cities for two-wheelers. The Strasbourg Tourist Office offers a 3-day pass that allows you to make several visits and enjoy discounts. Available at 22 € for adults, 15 € for 13-17 year olds and 10 € for 4-12 year olds, it includes a visit to a museum of your choice ,a visit to the astronomical clock of the cathedral, a boat cruise. And reduced rates for a ride on a small train, a guided tour of the city, a second visit to a museum, a climb to the cathedral platform, a tour of the city on a segway and many other discounts with several partners. Visit the cathedral and its astronomical clock Strasbourg's cathedral is a true masterpiece. Built between the 12th and 15th centuries, it is a monument that must be visited. Surrounded by large houses, it is not very visible from the rest of the city which offers a real "wow" effect when you get close to it and it is revealed! Inside, you can admire an impressive astronomical clock. Although entirely mechanical, this clock indicates not only the time, but also the day of the year, the position of the sun and the moon, the times of sunrise and sunset, the position of 5,000 stars and the planets of the solar system... And at each hour, a system of automatons comes to life and is a little show in itself. Complete your visit of the cathedral by climbing the upper parts. You have to climb 330 steps to get there which requires a good physical condition but the reward is worth the exercise! From up there, a magnificent view of Strasbourg and its region awaits you. By downloading the free VR application Strasbourg Cathedral you can also discover how the city was in the Middle Ages. The Petite France district is the most typical of Strasbourg and a must-see when visiting the city. With its cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and canals, you'll be charmed!
