Centre-ville de Strasbourg

●   # Rank

It makes sense that the entire center is listed as a UNESCO heritage.

A variety of historically significant buildings that are all unique and breathtaking!

Incredible medieval heritage will make you feel like time is changing with each step.

If you go to this city, you'll undoubtedly spend some time in the center and take in the energy, as well as the cafes, restaurants, and Cathedral.

Everything is focused on here.


  • Start at the center of the town from Place Kléber:

The pink sandstone Aubette Building encircles the square on one side.

A guard unit once occupied this military structure from the last half of the 18th century. The building's former entertainment complex, L'Aubette 1928, now hosts modern performances and events. Theo Van Doesburg, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, and Jean Arp created its outstanding avant-garde decor. Avoid missing it!

  • Most likely, the tramway will bring you to this square at Place de l'Homme de Fer:

A glass dome was erected to cover the square when it was redesigned in 1994 to accommodate the launch of the tramway system. The futuristic pleated aluminum facade of the recently renovated Printemps department store echoes the avant-garde appearance that this rotunda gives the square. You can spot the iron man (Homme de fer) if you look closely!

  • Dwell in the beauty of Place Gutenberg:

The Neubau is situated on this square, nearly across from the Cathedral.

The Strasbourg Chamber of Commerce and Industry currently resides in this structure from the late 16th century.

Cut stone was used in the construction of this remarkable, incredibly symmetrical building, which was a risky decision at the time because it stood in stark contrast to the half-timbered architecture of the area.

When it was constructed, it generated a lot of controversies.

  • 33 rue des Grandes Arcades will, bind you with its metallic splendor:

Look up to see a magnificent glass and metal facade at number 33 in the purest form of Art Nouveau (late 19th, early 20th century). The building used to house a haberdashery.

  • Visit the Church of Saint-Pierre-le-Jeune to soak in the divinity and tranquility:

One of Strasbourg's finest churches, this church is quiet and set back from the street. It is truly amazing to see. The church's interior is filled with numerous noteworthy paintings and frescoes from the 14th century.

Both its cloister and rood screen are magnificent; they form a haven of quiet in the middle of the city.

  • Spot the symbolic Janus Fountain and spend some time admiring it:

On Place Broglie, close to the Opera House, is where you'll find the fountain, created by internationally acclaimed Strasbourg artist Tomi Ungerer and shaped like an aqueduct with water flowing on both sides.

The two-faced head of the god Janus represents Strasbourg's dual identity in its basin, a city that France and Germany have frequently fought over.
