Between a historic center listed as World Heritage of Humanity by Unesco, delicious gastronomic specialties and fascinating architecture, whether half-timbered houses or the impressive Notre Dame Cathedral: the Alsatian capital has preserved a remarkable authenticity which has something to charm us and change of scenery for a weekend.
The Notre-Dame cathedral
Strasbourg Cathedral ** If you had to visit only one place in Strasbourg, it is its cathedral, described by Victor Hugo as "Prodigy of the gigantic and the delicate". The second tallest cathedral in France after that of Rouen, which rises to 151 meters, the Gothic architecture of this building fascinates. Passing through Alsace, here is a must to see absolutely! **
Walk on the water
Régent Petite France ** Browse the historic center of Strasbourg by crossing the pedestrian streets, yes. But since the heart of the city is an island, nothing like taking a leisurely boat trip from where you can easily admire the architecture of typical houses, enjoying the birdsong. **
A traditional restaurant
Le tire-bouchon ** Located in the heart of Strasbourg, a stone's throw from the cathedral, the Alsatian charm of the Tire-Bouchon restaurant invites us inside. Exposed wooden beams, chairs carved in the shape of Alsatians wearing the typical costume, without forgetting the regional specialties: everything here is authentic. On the menu: sauerkraut, baeckeoffe with three meats or chicken cordon bleu with munster. Enjoy your meal ! **
Régent Petite France ### At the hotel ** For the weekend, let's settle in at the Régent Petite France, a hotel in the heart of the city halfway between tradition and contemporary spirit. In this spacious and comfortable room, design occupies space with discretion: we have preserved the typical Alsatian exposed beams, but repainted in white, they take on a more modern air. **
