Strasbourg


Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue
At the crossroads of French and German traditions, Strasbourg has preserved its architectural treasures since medieval times, before becoming the democratic capital of modern Europe.
The first city ever to have its entire historical center, the Grande Île, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a wonderful blend of French and German influences, Strasbourg is a sight for sore eyes with its iconic timber-framed buildings. Constructed between 1015 and 1439, the Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the finest examples of Rayonnant Gothic architecture, dominates the picture-perfect town. Standing at the foot of the 466-feet high reddish-brown sandstone Cathedral walls is a special moment.
Route for Strasbourg tour
Another area worth exploring in Strasbourg is the Neustadt, the city's German district also awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2017. It is the main relic of Wilhelmine architecture since most of the major cities in Germany suffered significant damage during the Second World War. An excellent example of German urban layout, its architectural style blends five centuries of European architecture. With your eyes filled with gorgeous architecture, visit the famous winstubs, traditional restaurants and wine bars, for a taste of the Alsatian cuisine, a delicious mix of French and German flavors.
