Strasbourg Strasbourg

Day 1 - Strasbourg

Head off to discover the historical centre and Notre-Dame cathedral which were classified by Unesco as World Heritage Sites of Humanity in 1988. The first thing to admire is the exterior: much of the cathedral’s charm comes from its pink sandstone stones of the Vosges. Allow one hour for the visit.
Grab a table for lunch in a genuine winstub before a post meal walk along the quaysides of the Ill.
Your afternoon is cultural. You have the choice of the Museum of Decorative Arts, the Archaeological Museum or the Museum of the Oeuvre Notre-Dame, devoted to Alsatian art.
By the end of the day, you’ve earned a shopping break in the pretty medieval lanes or a stroll through the Kléber or Gutenberg squares.

MyTripTailor Tip: something to do with the children – climb the spire of the cathedral to view the spectacle of the astronomical clock (time your visit for midday).

  • Distance : 7,8 km
  • Duration : 0h38

Day 2 - Strasbourg

On the agenda for this second day is an exploration of Petite France, one of the most curious and best preserved places in old Strasbourg. The wharf runs along the canal and offers a romantic glimpse of the facades of old medieval houses reflected in the water. One of the most enjoyable ways to discover Petite France, particularly with children, is a cruise along the River Ill, admiring the play of light on the beautiful houses that line the river.
After lunch, take a walk around the Krutenau district before visiting the Alsatian Museum, spanning three incredible 16th and 17th century houses. Worth the trip alone, it tells of the past and the traditions of Alsace. Taking in the maze of wooden stairways and galleries from the inner courtyards, the course reveals a multitude of small halls of Alsatian character. You can admire collections of costumes, prints, antique toys …
You can then enjoy your evening on the Malraux peninsula.

MyTripTailor Tip: don’t miss the view from Saint-Martin bridge which overlooks the Tanneurs district. The river divides here into four arms (you can still see water mills, dams and locks).

  • Distance : 9,5 km
  • Duration : 0h40

Day 3 - Strasbourg

It’s already the last day! Be sure to go and explore the German Quarter at your earliest convenience. Take a stroll through the wide streets of this monumental area: they tell us how the geopolitical rivalries between France and Germany have had such a tangible impact on the life of people in Strasbourg.

The Tomi Ungerer Museum will take up the rest of your morning before you head off for a picnic in Parc de l’Orangerie.

After lunch, visit the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. High on the banks of the River Ill, this building (1997) was created by Adrien Fainsilber. Adorned in a huge multicolored canopy, a high central nave serves the exhibition halls. The museum’s extensive collections make up a panorama of modern and contemporary art from the 1850s to the present day.

MyTripTailor Tip: If you have enough time, visit the Vessel Exhibition (exposition du Vaisseau), perfect 3 to 12 year olds.
