A two-day trip:
Two days is just enough time to soak up the beauty and culture of Strasbourg.The historic city centre, Grande Ile, has to be your first destination. It was classified a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1988, the first time such an honour was placed on an entire city centre. Whether you are staying at Campanile Hotel Haguenau, Campanile Hotel Strasbourg – Lingolsheim, Campanile Hotel Strasbourg Ouest Zenith or Campanile Hotel Strasbourg Sud – Illkirck Geispolsheim it is just a short taxi ride. The city centre is perhaps most famous for the Strasbourg Cathedral. It is the world’s fourth tallest church and an ornate example of fifteenth century gothic architecture. Palais des Rohain, a seventeenth century French palace, and the four other churches in the centre add to the feel of a medieval city. For day two visit the European district. The Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights and European Parliament will certainly provide a contrast to the city’s centre.
A one-week break:
A week is the perfect amount of time to really get to know Strasbourg and appreciate its true beauty. Its Franco-German history is an important aspect to the culture of Strasbourg so a visit to the German quarter is a must. The huge park-like square of The Place de la Republique and the Rhine Palace are a nod to the city’s past, while the Egyptian-style house is a work of art combining Art Nouveau and Orientalism from the 1900s. Just south of the centre lies Petite France. Home to the city’s most photogenic streets and buildings, including picturesque half-timber houses, hours can be lost strolling around here.
A family holiday:
Strasbourg is a wonderful place to take the family with plenty on offer to keep everyone busy! A visit to the student district of Krutenau will reveal the municipal baths, the Zoological museum as well as trendy restaurants and shops, leaving everyone with plenty to do.
