A powerful symbol of European construction, Strasbourg is a vibrant, energetic city with all the ingredients for great quality of life.
Take a stroll through the city and you can't help but soak up the influence of Franco-German culture - the source of the city’s unique identity. Its historic city centre, clustered on the “Grand Island”, is a joy for pedestrians and cyclists, and was one of the very first city centres to be classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its imposing Cathedral, the city’s major landmark, is one of Europe’s most beautiful Gothic constructions, while its famous “Petite France” neighbourhood with its timber-framed buildings draws in tourists from all over the world. The city is even more alluring when visited during the winter holiday season - don’t miss the famous Christmas market.
