A UNESCO world heritage

The picturesque river with its many bridges, its breathtakingly beautiful cathedral, its fairytale houses and its extraordinary heritage makes Strasbourg one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The city centre has even been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

An international city

Cosmopolitan, international, with a rich, centuries-old history, Strasbourg occupies a privileged position in the heart of Europe. It is humanist, a pioneer in the reconstruction of Europe, and is the headquarters of a number of the Union’s institutions: the European Parliament, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights.

Alsatian gastronomy

In Strasbourg, cooking is more than just an art of living, it is a vibrant and living culture backed up by centuries of tradition. The Alsatian dishes have a boldness and earthiness that is reminiscent of their German roots, while there is attention to quality and detail that is the epitome of French gourmet philosophy.”
