Go to the 'Petite France' very typical
And eat a flammekueche in 'Le Flam's' near the cathedral. Strasbourg is according to me the most beautiful city in France.
The Cultural policy is great and the street are very nice to see.
I want to live here as soon as I can !!!
The European Quarter
The European Quarter is the seat (well, one of them anyway) of the parliament for the European Union and The European Court Of Human Rights. The walk to this quarter is nice too, past some old townhouses and mansions that line the riverside,
Pictured is the parliament building.
My booktip for Strasbourg
My booktip for Strasbourg is one to understand the Elsace and her turbulent history of war:
'Im Westen nichts neues' of Erich Maria Remarque is a classic anti-war novel which deals with the First World War. It has been translated in many languages, including English (No news from the western front).
Parking and driving around down town Strasbourg requires a lot of patience so I would advise you to park near some bus or tram/street train station and walk around the city.
Strasbourg really isn't a big town and the main attractions are close to each other (Cathedral, Petite France, Rohan Palace, Place Broglie, ...). Use bus or tram if you want to visit european buildings and Orangerie park (they are really close to each other).
Bus and tram lines won't bring you to any interesting attraction in the suburbs or nearby country side (you will need to drive by car or use rail for that).
An oasis in the busy city
It is a large restaurant with very good service, declicious food and - best thing - a fantastic terrace right above the Ill river. We had lunch there - salad plus fish filet with pasta, my friend salad plus chicken pie and pasta - and it was of excellent quality.
