At Freetour Alsace we are a group of professional guides, with degrees in Art History, Geography, Music, Languages and History; with extensive experience in the sector and a common passion: Strasbourg. We work with professionalism, honesty and transparency to show you the best that this imperial city has to offer from a critical point of view, beyond a simple photo. With us you not only have a guide but also a host, a helping hand, someone who can show you this city with the joy it deserves. We are guides of the 21st century. That is why we like to establish a relationship of closeness and trust between travelers and guides. This is achieved by respecting the traveler and for this we believe that having small groups is the most sincere way of transmitting knowledge and sensations so that your trip is filled with experiences and anecdotes to tell when you return home. Our maxim is that you live Strasbourg with the same love that we live it every day.

About the Tour

When the Alsace sky lights up with stars, it is the perfect time to discover the mysteries and legends of Strasbourg. We will begin to discover the most surprising stories by meeting at the indicated time in front of the emblematic Galeries Lafayette.

Frau Troffea will be the protagonist of the first story. This woman, who lived in Strasbourg at the time of the Holy Roman Empire, started dancing wildly one fine day. Many citizens began to follow suit, but nearly 400 died of heart attacks, strokes, or simple exhaustion. It is the so-called dance fever of 1518.

What could have caused this tragedy? After investigating its possible causes, we will continue our free night tour of Strasbourg next to the iconic Covered Bridges. There we will learn about the cruel punishments that, between the 13th and 17th centuries, were imposed on people suspected of practicing pagan activities or witchcraft .

We will continue the tour walking through the Petite France neighborhood, in whose streets we will learn disturbing stories of ghosts and murders . We will also discover what were the macabre projects that Adolf Hitler's regime devised at the Reich University during the Nazi occupation of Strasbourg.

Finally, after two hours of walking, we will conclude the visit in front of the Strasbourg Cathedral. Will this gothic temple hide some mystery? Of course yes...
