Strasbourg sits on France's eastern border with Germany, and its multicultural past and unique geographic location are showcased in the city's sensational architecture and historic landmarks. It's also the official seat of the EU and home to one of France's largest student populations, making it a favourite with both corporate travellers and those seeking a lively nightlife scene.
