It is important to know a city and its history in order to better appreciate its beauty. Strasbourg is one of the border-cities which opens the door between two countries. This Franco-German city offers tourists the chance to see many historic monuments and some incomparable architecture. Tourists may consider a prolonged stay or they may choose to explore the city in one weekend. Discovering the Capital of Europe could also include a boat ride, a visit to the Ponts Couverts, Petite-France and the imperial quarter.
Lovers of history and beautiful architecture will not be disappointed. The Museum of the works of Notre-Dame and the Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art are just as rewarding as walks along the river. There is no need to worry about accommodation. You can book a cosy gîte or guesthouse before you arrive. Alternatively, Strasbourg also has many hotels that would be happy to welcome you. Strasbourg is a World Heritage Site that is worth exploring; walks or bike rides will allow you to reconnect with nature and to discover the hidden beauty of the city.
