Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg

This huge Cathedral, Strasbourg's most famous landmark, is an intimidating example of 13th-century Gothic architecture.

Reviewed By GirdleTheEarth - Southend

This Cathedral is apparently the second most visited Cathedral in France, after Notre Dame de Paris. I am not surprised. the building is a mellow red, and the exterior is literally covered with high Gothic carvings. I have never seen anything quite like it. You could spend years studying these statues, and the mind boggles at the skills of the craftsmen who produced them. My husband climbed to the viewing platform and even on a rather dull wintry day enjoyed the views, although with nearly 350 steps be prepared for quite a hike!

Centre-ville de Strasbourg

Reviewed By Jason B - Wiesbaden, Germany

I was here for the Christmas market and I would definitely recommend this market to anyone in the area next year. The market occupies the entire Grande Ile. I think the total was 7 or 8 markets around the various landmarks. Our favorite was the one with the backdrop of the Cathedral. The mulled wine is very distinctive and delicious and there are various hot and cold snacks along with beautiful gifts for friends and family.

MM Park France

Reviewed By Lingekopf - London, United Kingdom

The museum is reasonably priced given the content. I have visited national collections with less to offer in my time. Extremely well presented offering a clear view of the exhibits (not always the easiest of tasks, too often other museums cram exhibits) The lack of labels (at the present time) combined with the French museums (general trend across whole of France) love of poor mannequins were the only real issues.... Strongly recommended if you are in the area !!

Eglise protestante Saint Pierre le Jeune

Reviewed By aleksandraZagreb - Zagreb

Exterior of he church is not so impressive as for instance Strasbourg Cathedral. But step inside and you will change your opinion. Numerous frescoes, dating from xiv and xv century, are interesting enough. And what to say about the choir screen with organs? This church has unique interior and is real surprise. It remains only to imagine what were the churches like in their original colorful states.

Reviewed By KH198 - Annapolis, Maryland

Don’t pass up an opportunity to visit this superb museum documenting the rich history of Strasbourg over the centuries. We lost track of time and spent almost four hours exploring every corner. Free lockers are thoughtfully provided so you don’t have to carry anything with you as you roam the exhibits, and the audio guide is excellent.

Musee de l'OEuvre Notre-Dame

An art museum with a sampling of regional work completed between the 11th and 17th centuries.

Reviewed By yshargal - Haifa

Located just in front of the Strasbourg Cathedral, this museum displays impressive sculptures and vitrages from the Middle Ages, which were originally located in Strasbourg Catedral.
The items were removed to protect them from pollution (and were replaced by copies).
The museum also has pieces that came from other churches.
Well worth a visit. Up to 1 hour.
The museum has several floors and no lift.

Barrage Vauban

Reviewed By Katrien S - Ghent, Belgium

Vauban build the barrage when Strasbourg became part of the French kingdom, to strengthen the defences of the city. Currently there is an open view platform along the top, from which you have a great view of the earlier defence towers of the city, as well as la petite France, and all the way to the Cathedral. If you return on the ground level, you can see some statues along the way, as well as part of the defence structure.
