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

You may have seen a few pictures of Strasbourg, a postcard, a nice photography. Most of them show one district in particular : the Petite France, for good reason. With such a romantic name it should be charming and sweet. And it actually is! Old medieval district, the Petite France is a pedestrian area where you will stroll through cobblestone streets with houses between one and five centuries old, some of the finest examples of half-timbered houses, traditional Alsatian architecture. From the still visible details, we will picture you the life of locals, leading you over the many bridges composing this cosy and unique part of our town. You will then walk over some of the last remains of the old fortifications surrounding the city, to finish with a marvellous point of view, where the whole district will be unravelled. With the Petite France Tour, the guide will lead you around the main monuments of the district, like Ponts Couverts, Barrage Vauban, or the pretty Pont du Faisan, but also through the places which give the district all its charming atmosphere like Place Benjamin Zix, Grand Rue, or Quai de la Bruche.

Very enjoyable walk. The guide was very knowledgeable. He gave us a lot of information in a very entertaining and accessible way. I know a lot more about Strasbourg and the neighbourhood of Petite France having done the walk. The length and duration of the walk were just right. Highly recommended.

This tour was longer than described which was very positive, without getting boring. Our French guide Thomas knows unusual facts and humourous stories. I really recommand the tour with him. Best wishes from a French tourist from Germany.
