The hotel Appart’City Strasbourg is a great base for your Strasbourg city break, being just a 10 minute walk from the train station and a short stroll from Strasbourg’s loveliest quartier, la Petite France. The hotel offers self catered studios with a view of the city, with a well equipped kitchenette This hotel scores 4/5 on TripAdvisor.
Strasbourg itself has loads to do, and a first stop on any visit to the city should be its gorgeous gothic cathedral, which turned 1000 years old this year. The massive spire is visible from everywhere in the city, and the area around, so you couldn’t miss it even if you tried! The centre of Strasbourg is built on an island formed by two rivers, so hopping on a boat is a great way to get a different perspective on the city. Regular boat tours leave from just behind the cathedral, with entertaining commentaries in English available. Make sure to get the longer tour which takes you out to see the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights – Strasbourg is very proud of its European capital status. Your first day is a Sunday, so take full advantage of the fact that the museums are open (as the shops won’t be) and start of your explorations at the Modern Art Museum, just around the corner from your hotel. After this you can wander across the Barrage Vauban, a covered bridge, across to the Petite France, the city’s historical centre with the quaintest views of half-timbered houses reflected in the water. Head along the river and you’ll find the Alsatian Museum, the History Museum and the Fine Arts Museum, which shares a palace with Napoleonic era reception rooms, also worth a visit.
Grab a hot chocolate from Christian, which is just next to the cathedral and has an extensive menu of different hot chocolates, as well as mouthwatering cakes, but make sure to save room for some award-winning macaroons at Elizabeth. For French classics the Cafe De La Chaine D’Or, just by the Grande Rue tram stop, is well worth trying, and for something a bit different head to studenty Kruteneau for Korean or Lebanese food. The Diable Bleu steak restaurant is also well worth a visit – just don’t bring any vegetarians along as the decor is meat themed! There’s so much to see and explore in the city itself, but if you’re into your wine a day trip out to the Alsatian wine route is a must. Renting a car and driving the route for yourself is great fun, but there are tours available if you don’t want to have to designate a driver.
