Tour description

Can you imagine what Germany would look like if it had never been bombed? Did you know about Hitler's plans with Alsace during World War II ? And how did it all end? We are going to find out! We will take a trip back in time to this era. You cannot leave Strasbourg without knowing its fascinating history of wars, making it the protagonist of the European scene and a symbol of reconciliation.

This freetour, unique in the city, will help us understand much better the changes in power between France and Germany in the last 3 centuries. We will walk from the majestic German Imperial Quarter: Neustdat—next UNESCO historical heritage—, whose Prussian architecture remained intact, until finishing with European Institutions and the beautiful Parc de l'Orangerie, with its relaxing lake and its storks!

We will meet in front of the Strasbourg Cathedral with Red Umbrella , where we will begin this free tour of the capital of Alsace . Did you know that, after the Second World War , the city became a symbol of Franco-German reconciliation ? We will tell you a lot of curiosities, some stronger than others.

We will start the tour walking along Rue du Dome , one of the most important streets in Strasbourg, full of surprises. The next stop will take place on Rue des Juifs , where we will notice a plaque that commemorates the presence of the Jewish community in this place throughout history.

We will pass by historical places such as Place Broglie and the town hall (Hotel de Ville) and arrive at the German Imperial Quarter of Neustadt , which was built by the German authorities during the annexation of Alsace-Lorraine . There we will see how the architecture of the Second Reich is preserved intact in the city, the Germany that was not destroyed.

We will take the tram at Place de la République (1€80 per ticket) After visiting the Rhine Palace, the former Imperial Palace, where we will talk to you about the architecture of the 'Neos' and their strategic design for the city. Passing through the Avenue of Peace, you will see the Jewish Synagogue and we will show you what it was originally like before its destruction.

Afterwards, we will arrive at the European Quarter , a symbol of peace after so many conflicts. There we will see the exterior of the Palace of Human Rights , which was inaugurated in 1995 and inside which houses the European Court of Human Rights .

Next we will approach the exterior of the European Parliament , the largest transnational parliament in the world, which has been the scene of important historic votes and the Council of Europe .

After two hours visiting this part of Strasbourg, we will say goodbye at the Parc de l'Orangerie after taking an unmissable tour.

El tour turístico sobre Estrasburgo como capital europea de la paz y de las instituciones europeas nos encantó! Nos sorprendió muy gratamente! Gabriela es una excelente guía que tiene un gran conocimiento profundo sobre la historia europea. Además de explicarnos en detalle la evolución de Estrasburgo a lo largo de la historia, Gabriela supo conectar con todo el grupo y amenizó en todo momento su interesante discurso con su simpatía, su adecuada música para cada momento y todo ello, con gran profesionalidad y amabilidad. GRACIAS! Le deseamos lo mejor! Tour inolvidable!

Gabriela nos mostró una parte de la ciudad menos visitada pero con mucho interés histórico y político. Apreciamos la calidad de los comentarios y la claridad de las explicaciones. Gabriela hizo el tour ameno, no sientes las horas pasar.
