Strasbourg Hotels

The metal and glass of the European Parliament and Court of Human Rights buildings gleam in Strasbourg's sun, but the city's crooked half-timber houses, which lean endearingly against each other in its beautiful historical centre, leave their modern designs well and truly in the shade. Whether it's the detailed expressions that were chiselled onto the cathedral's religious figures 500 years ago, or the vivid strokes of paint on the canvasses of the city's Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the Alsatian capital blends history with the here and now like nowhere else.

Things to see

Strasbourg Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece of a building, looms out of its narrow medieval streets, and the 142-metre tall spire climbs high above the cathedral's facade of twisted gargoyles and grand arches. It's no less impressive inside, and the moody interior glows with a kaleidoscope of speckled colour, as the sun hits giant rose windows. If you hear a rooster calling, rush to the cathedral's perpetually moving astronomical clock, to watch the intricate mechanics whir into life at noon, causing tiny figures of the apostles to parade around Jesus. Afterwards, slowly tackle the 330 steps that lead up to a viewing point at the top of the spire. Some minor breathlessness is a small price to pay for the stunning views, and you can see as far as the fairytale-filled tangle of trees that is Germany's Black Forest. If the sun's shining, Parc de l'Orangerie is blissful, and you can walk by a lake of fizzing fountains, before stopping to chat with cherry-red parrots in its small zoo. You'll also get chance to see the long beaks of some of the famous storks that loyally return to the city each year, as they stretch their wings in huge, bucket sized nests.

Sleek zebra-striped sofas, and coloured glass accents, add contemporary style to Strasbourg's gleaming 5-star hotel options. Robe up for some stress-busting spa treatments as you drift between the massage table, the sauna, and the hot tub in a blissful daze. Save a little money by going for a budget or mid-range option, and you'll enjoy an undisturbed night's sleep in a soundproofed room, with a spongey mattress waiting to carry you off to sleep instantly. There's a huge choice of hotels in Strasbourg – so whether you want effective air conditioning, a balcony with views of the towering cathedral's spire, or a free breakfast buffet, it's easy to find your perfect hotel. Free WiFi, a television, and hot drink facilities are waiting in most rooms.

Where to stay

The Grande Île – Strasbourg's River L'Ill cuddled historic centre – is somewhat unique, because UNESCO gave up trying to choose between its steepled churches and tight Medieval streets. Instead, they took the previously unprecedented step of listing the entire historical centre as a World Heritage Site. Stay among the canals and cobbles of La Petite France, to lick drips from homemade ice creams, or to bite into creamy tarte flambées, sprinkled with bacon bits. Stroll along paths fringed with timber houses, or sail on the smooth canal water, ducking as you pass under low stone bridges, with the colourful facades of baroque houses leaning over you.

How to get to Strasbourg

With borders to Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg all nearby, Strasbourg truly does feel like it’s located at the heart of Europe. If you're flying into Strasbourg International Airport, feel free to go carless, as the airport's conveniently linked with the city centre's magnificent glass-domed railway station. Trains run to Paris on a regular basis, meaning the Eurostar from London is another option. If you're already in mainland Europe, Nancy, Basel and Stuttgart are easily drivable within 2 hours.
