Strasbourg is one of those European gems you can fall instantly in love with. When spending One Week In France, this gorgeous beauty should definitely make it to your bucket list.
But, what is there to see in Strasbourg? We collected 10 gorgeous things to see, including the beautiful district of La Petit France, the majestic cathedral, and more. There is no doubt, you can enjoy One Week In Strasbourg without getting bored.
Here are the 10 best things to see in Strasbourg – according to Instagram.
1. La Petite France
Of course, the most precious neighborhood is an absolute must-visit.
It will give you plenty of opportunities to shoot your own Instagram-shot.
Just keep walking, but slowly, Strasbourg is not made for rushing through.
2. Wander around the Old Town
The old town, including La Petit France, also comes with many narrowed streets.
With medieval streets, combined with modern architecture, the city gives you a unique flair to enjoy.
A beautiful time we love?
Springtime! Later in this article, you’ll see why!
3. Graffiti Hunting
Although Strasbourg is not famous for its Graffiti scene, there is still some urban art around.
Keep your eyes open. We have seen some hilarious ones, some impressive ones.
4. Palais de Justice in Strasbourg
This Palace is a piece of architectural art. Come here, take a photo!
5. The Vauban-Bridge
Once upon a time, Vauban was a brilliant architect, responsible for many cities around the border of France.
This includes cities like Toulouse, Freiburg, and many more.
The Vauban Bridge is free for visiting and you can even go up on the deck. From there you have a wonderful panoramic view of La Petit France.
And of course, by night, the bridge itself is a beautiful highlight to see in Strasbourg.
Spring Time, flower time. We told you, we love Spring in Strasbourg.
For a good reason.
The whole city is waking up from a cold, strong winter, and flowers start to get their colors back.
7. Admire the old buildings
Made from old architecture and modern touches, the neighborhood of Strasbourg will make you admire its old buildings.
And of course, a photo should not be missed.
8. Get outside the city: Espace Européen Schiltigheim
A lovely photo is definitely worth taking in Espace Européen Schiltigheim.
I could do this for hours and hours. There are also many restaurants and cafés right on the river. Sit down here and relax.
There are also a few spots where you can go down and actually sit right at the waterfront.
10. Christmas Market
One of my favorite Christmas markets in Europe is the one in Strasbourg.
The city is just gorgeous this time of year.
Try to avoid weekends, since many French, German and Swiss families come over to visit the Christmas market too.
Sum it up
There are many corners to explore in Strasbourg. And Instagram is a fabulous resource as well to find those. Just hop over to Instagram and search for the location “Strasbourg, France” or directly La Petit France.
