Strasbourg, city centre classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Hôtel des Princes is the ideal departure point from which to uncover the treasures of Strasbourg - from the banks of the river Ill to its historic city centre. Surrounded by the two arms of the river, the city centre was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1988. Fully pedestrianized, the 'Petite France' district is an absolute must-see.
Go ahead and take a stroll through the typical alleys that surround the Notre-Dame cathedral. Dominating over lively squares and half-timbered houses, such as the famous Maison Kammerzell, the cathedral stands 142 meters in height, making it the 2nd tallest cathedral in France. An emblem of Gothic architecture, you will gasp in awe at its sculptures, its stained glass windows and its astronomical clock, a renowned Renaissance masterpiece.
Not far from the cathedral, you will find a significant number of museums including those housed inside the Palais Rohan: Des Beaux-Arts (fine arts), Art Deco and Archaeology.
Along the docks, at the Musée Alsacien (museum of Alsace) you will find yourself plunged into the heart of Alsatian culture. Other cultural attractions include a visit to the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain (museum of modern and contemporary art), which is located only a few minutes' walk from the Petite France district. Enjoy a gentle walk through this emblematic neighbourhood of the Alsatian capital.
