Strasbourg, with its Franco-German heritage, is the ideal destination for all city travel romanticists.
How to get to Strasbourg
Strasbourg is only 1.5 hours away by train from Basel.
Strasbourg and Europe
Strasbourg is considered the capital of Europe, as various European institutions are based in Strasbourg. The European Parliament, the European Court of Human Rights, the European Ombudsman, Eurocorps and, since 1949, the Council of Europe.
Mulled wine and Christmas market
The city is particularly beautiful at Christmas time. The pre-Christmas events and the enchanting Christmas market attract many tourists. Some people combine a visit to the Christmas market with a shopping tour and of course a glass of mulled wine.
Strasbourg - a city with charm
Despite its eventful history, Strasbourg was able to preserve its rich cultural heritage. Stroll through the lovingly restored old town - to the red sandstone cathedral, through the picturesque Petite France quarter with its historic half-timbered houses, to the magnificent Château des Rohan - and be inspired by the charm of the numerous restaurants or wine taverns.
Try the Alsatian beer, which is traditionally brewed from hops and malt in one of the still existing breweries. After a break you will be strengthened again and you'll be ready for the rest of the visit of the city. Visit the Maison Kammerzell, Strasbourg's most beautiful half-timbered house or the architectural masterpiece, the Cathédrale Notre-Dame. From the viewing platform of Notre Dame you have a great view over the city, the Vosges and the Black Forest.
