Strasbourg is a fine destination. They are more green/eco conscious than many of the places we visited.
You have to buy your maps but the complimentary one from the hotel is enough to get around. The water tour is fantastic. The old town is simply amazing. It is beautiful. You never tired of the buildings and surrounds. If you have to do the church tour, be ready for lots of steps. The spiral stair is narrow and there are plenty of steps. A bit like the Arc de Treomphe in Paris. I just wished that I could have seen the Black Forest from Strasbourg, but not this time.
Strasbourg is a typical mid-size French city: it is beautiful with magnificent buildings, excellent tourist infrastructure, great places to eat, a tremendous cathedral, etc.
Strasbourg is a lovely cultural city with lots of attractions. We enjoyed the light shows and barge ride.
The tourist information in the station was very helpful and you can buy a tram ticket for 24hours for 3 people for only €6. Cathedral is a must see.
Beautiful place, nice food, nice shopping area. Historical place to visit. One complain, the bus driver cannot speak English.
If you go there by car, be sure to go ahead of time.. The traffic Will kill you. Take the canal Tour, it's a greath Way to see the City
From our hotel, we are within about 10 mins walking distance to the notre dame cathedral and petite france.
The hotel is situated somewhere in tbetween this 2 major attrations. Notre dame cathedral was spectacular from the outside....but inside was abit dull. Petite france was excellent and you should try and have your dinner there and pick a seat with the view of the river....absolutely peaceful
I loved this city. I didn't know anything about it before getting there. Unfortunately I only had 2 days, one night in this city.
I was totally impressed with this city and was in awe over the Cathedral. While I was there, beginning of Nov, they were decorating the city for the holidays. I just wish I could have seen the city in lights. I 'm sure it's absolutely beautiful. I was traveling alone and was walking around after dark and felt very safe. I would recommend this city to anyone. Next time I will spend at least 3-4days here.
I love Starasbourg more than Paris. Parisians are snooty and just "un-nice". People in Strasbourg are very nice and helpful.
The city is lovely, very walkable, very liveable. I can live here forever.
