Displayed:   times.

Capital of Alsace, France, Strasbourg (German: StraĂźburg) is mostly known for hosting European institutions. However, it is also a very nice place to visit, especially for its old town. The city itself is one of the 9 biggest cities in France, with a population of about 450,000 people if you include the surroundings. Part of the conurbation is located on the eastern bank of the Rhine, in Kehl, Germany.

Strasbourg is the seat of the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights and is one of the seats of the European Parliament

The tourist office recommends a variety of walking tours through the town (Middle Ages, Renaissance, Modern and Contemporary) and bike tours through the faubourgs (Neudorf ans Neuhof).

Water-bus tours are available near the Palais des Rohans (south of the cathedral). Those tours (about 45 min.) run around the town center and the European district.

* Gothic cathedral, built between 1176 and 1439, with a 142 meter tower (the highest cathedral tower in France)
* Maison Kammerzell (XVth century) (to the left of the front of the cathedral)
* Petite France district (XIIth - XVIth century)
* Palais des Rohans, french style palace, built after the acquisition of the town by the French (1681)
* Stockfeld, garden city built in the early XXth century in the south-east of the Neuhof (southern part of the town) (bus line 24)
* European district (bus lines 6, 30, 72) :
o Council of Europe's seat (Le Palais de l'Europe) (1977), built by Henry Bernard
o European Court of Human Rights (1995), built by Richard Rogers
o European Parliament (1999), built by Architecture Studio

* B-line tramway terminus at Hoenheim (northern conurbation) (2001), built by the contemporary achitect Zaha Hadid.
