Happy Strasbourg was founded in 2013, out of passion for our city and region, and is an independent organisation. Our first goal is to share this passion with anyone willing to learn about it. All our guides are born and raised in Strasbourg or its surroundings, and had plenty of time and a lifetime to learn what it really is to be alsatian… And believe our word, it is to be taken seriously! Armed with experience and well-established knowledges, they will give their best to make this tour as entertaining as interesting, to give you the best of this identity forged by more than 2000 years of history, from the most famous aspect of the city and its inhabitants to the most secret ones. Our tours are wrapped in a friendly and accessible stroll, every guide providing his own personal touch in an different and unusual way. Our first motivation is to share, our motto : dynamism and good mood!

Tour description

This tour is going to take you to the most famous squares of Strasbourg. Starting by the discovery of our amazing cathedral and its 1000 years of history, we will lead you through the center of our old city, discovering the differents times which shaped it. You will see the main places and monuments and hear the stories around them, not forgetting the Strasbourg of nowadays, with its gastronomic culture, modern life, and nice addresses. The foundation of our homes and the old legends shared in the families will have no secrets for you anymore. You will cross the Ill, our river drawing the contours of the old town called the Grand Island. And there, you will reach the german district, a unique wilhelminian district from the german times. You will hear about the duality of the alsatian identity and history, a bridge built over war and peace, culture and language. And all of this, within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, as we put all our efforts to personally create the tour. This is our way to share our story with you. With the Original Tour, the guide will lead around the squares of the Cathedral, Gutenberg, Kléber, Republique, and also in some less known places like Saint-Etienne square for example. We can’t tell you more, as each guide makes his tour his own way, so we don’t always go to the same places. * IMPORTANT INFORMATION: THE TOUR IS EVERYDAY FROM MARCH TO JANUARY 14.30 FROM JANUARY TO MARCH, WE WILL OFFER THE TOUR JUST SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS 14.30
