Strasburg is the capital of the Alsace region in eastern France. Strasburg has the charm of a cosmopolitan French city, but there is also a strong Germanic influence. As the seat of the European Parliament and with a large university, Strasburg is a happening place with plenty to do and see. But it also makes for a great relaxing city break.
Strasburg is pleasant to visit from spring through until the autumn, with the hot summer being the peak time. The city is easily accessible by road and rail, and has its own airport. Consider hiring a car and combining Strasburg holidays with a quick jaunt across the border to Germany or Switzerland. Strasburg uses Central European Time, one hour ahead of GMT.
Strasburg's most famous landmark is its Notre Dame cathedral, a truly spectacular building. Nearby is the Musee de l'oeuvre Notre Dame, which houses an extraordinary collection of sculptures, paintings and stained glass. Also well worth seeing is the Palais Rohan, which is like a minaiture Versailles. Strasburg's city centre is best visited on foot. Head for the Petite France area, where you'll find canals, narrow streets and half-timbered houses, and plenty of quaint shops and cafes.
If you have the time, hire a car and explore the beautiful surrounding towns and countryside. The town of Colmar is a popular day trip, and Riquewihr is a picturesque postcard village nestled in the hills. The slopes are covered in vineyards, and you'll have no trouble finding a restaurant offering delicious local food and wine. Strasburg holidays are perfect for treating yourself to a slice of the good life without breaking the bank.
