Strasbourg never fails to impress with its diversity: modern buildings, such as the seat of the European Parliament, stand side-by-side with the world-famous doorway of Strasbourg Cathedral, and ancient half-timbered houses. The countless inviting restaurants lining the narrow alleyways are a perfect place to while away the time.

There are a few different ways to explore Strasbourg:

You can take in the best of the sights as you wander through the Old Town. Starting from the Ancienne Douane, or Old Custom House on the River Ill, it's just a short stroll to the world-famous cathedral. Don't miss the Kammerzell House, an ornate half-timbered building on the Münsterplatz. Next, follow the rue des Hallebardes across the Place Gutenberg to the former Petite France tanners' quarter with its picturesque old half-timbered houses on the Ill, and on to the 'ponts couverts' (covered bridges) and the Vauban Dam. There are wonderful views across Strasbourg from the viewing terrace. The European District (including the Council of Europe, European Parliament and European Court of Human Rights), close to the Orangerie Park on the banks of the Ill, is also worth a visit.

Discover Strasbourg by boat: boat tours on the Ill and around the Old Town, with commentary, depart several times daily (embark at the Palais Rohan).

Distance: around 40 kilometres
