The 7 best sightseeing spots in Strasbourg

Known as the seat of European Parliament, Strasbourg has plenty of tourism, from opera to open spaces, art to architecture. Want to know what to see here? Follow our guide for the best views, tours and destinations.

Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg

It's hard not to be impressed by one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe. The Astronomical Clock is worth a few minutes of your time, and try to stay for the light show.

Barrage Vauban

When engineering and architecture meet, the results can define a landscape - this is one of those attractions. The dam offers some of the best views in and of the city.

European Parliament

Visitors can sit in on monthly four-day plenary sessions to see democracy in action. This is free but must be booked at least two months in advance. Offered in most languages.

Petite France

Relatively quiet, even in summer, Petite France is a small cluster of medieval houses and baroque buildings on the Grande Isle of Strasbourg. Try a self-guided walking tour.

Christmas Markets

Strasbourg is known as the Capital of Christmas, and was home to the first Christmas Market in 1570. It's most festive in the evening when lit up by thousands of fairy lights.

Alcase Wine Route

This famed wine-lover's pilgrimage is a holiday in itself, tracking through vineyards from Vignoble to Strasbourg. Beautiful views of the region can be enjoyed from Couronne D'Or.

Palais de Rohan

Just meters from the cathedral, the palace contains the museums of Fine Arts, Decorative Arts and Archeology. The three-in-one ticket offers value.

Planning Your Strasbourg Visit

Moon river

There is excellent sightseeing to be had without wearing out your shoes, if you opt for a river tour. The city looks particularly magical at night, as buildings are lit up along the river.

Bored of culture? Try sport

RC Strasbourg Alsace are a popular draw to the city. The team plays football at Stadt de la Meinau and although in recent years they have not been in top form, they are one of only six teams to win all three top french football trophies. They also have a popular basketball team - Strasbourg IG.

Day tripping

Fancy an extra dose of sightseeing? A day trip will take you further afield - Strasbourg is on the German border, just two hours' drive or train from Heidelberg or two and a half from Stuttgart.

What People Are Saying About Strasbourg

Great tour even if you don't normally like tours.

Took a chance on this tour and loved it. The van gets a little crowded with 8 adults but you're not in the car for a crazy amount of time. Florence (Flo) was a great tour guide, friendly and informative. We really liked the 2 winemakers/wineries we got to visit. Would do again. Thank you Flo!

Josh gives the stories behind the visuals. Great overview!

Josh did a fine job of providing the insight behind the sights. Without the stories it would simply be a beautiful walk. We definitely recommend the tour time well spent.

Excellent- the trip was well planned and our guide Florence was superb

Florence our guide was superb- really helpful and pleasant, and the locations were very enjoyable.

Amazing tour! You can capture a lot of Alsacien aspects in a day.

Along "route des vins d'Alsace", we visited many villages. In addition we had enough time to enjoy Alsacien foods and wines, which made me very satisfied.
