Recommendations

  • Take a tour of one of the local vineyards around Strasbourg and sample a range of delectable wines as you explore the area. The 170km-long Alsace Wine Route is France's oldest, and you can explore it easily on two wheels via the Vineyards Cycleway.

  • Take a walk through the Parc de l'Orangerie and relax by the lake, or wander through stunning, well-kept gardens. Keep an eye out for storks; they're the symbol of the Alsace region yet they were nearly extinct by the early 1970s. A succesful breeding programme that began here has seen nearly 800 stork births since 1971.

  • Explore the Grande Île, a UNESCO World Heritage site in the historic centre of Strasbourg, and marvel at the huge, asymmetrical Gothic cathedral. You'll also find the intricately carved Kammerzell House and the grand Palais Rohan nearby, as well as Place Kléber, Strasbourg’s largest square.
