Explore the Top 10 places in Strasbourg with Coach Charter Germany - your coach charter company
Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine region in north-eastern France and also the official seat of the European Parliament. The city lies on the border with Germany and combines German and French influences in its culture and architecture. Daily demonstrations of the astronomical clock take place at the Gothic Liebfrauenmünster. When climbing the 142 m high tower of the minster, there are wide views over the Rhine.

The Coach Charter Germany bus company has been evolving in the charter bus market for more than 48 years. You can take advantage of our nearby bus depot site, so we can offer busses of a range of sizes and services. The airport shuttle busses will pick you up from Strasbourg International Airport for a relaxing ride to your hotel in the area. It is possible to hire a Tour bus with a driver to visit all the attractions here on time. It is also possible to hire a coach with a driver to visit other cities for many days, or to fly to the surrounding countries by rental bus and charter bus. For any program, Coach Charter Germany is a secure means of transport while traveling around Strasbourg and its beautiful surrounding areas. Please feel free to give us an e-mail request to Coach Charter Germany's Tour Bus Department to find out more about our charter bus services.

Coach Charter Germany puts forward suggestions of the top 10 places for your itinerary in Strasbourg as follows:

1. Neustadt

Strasbourg has tripled in size in the 34 years between the Franco-Prussian War and the end of the First World War. This was the German era, and the pace of construction provided a host of districts in Strasbourg with an architectural quality that is hard to find anywhere else. These areas were planned to be the new core of the city, with broad boulevards on a grid system that was considered to be more hygienic and functional than the medieval streets of Grand Île and Petite France.

2. Le Vaisseau

A useful rainy day option if you're in Strasbourg with youngsters, Le Vaisseau is an immersive science museum from 3 to 15 years of age. Language should not be a concern either, as all displays are in English, French and German. The idea is for children to get stuck in and enjoy themselves, which makes it easier for them to learn things as they go. So, for children between the ages of 3 and 6, there is a building site where they can build up to their heart's content and learn about design and construction processes with guidance. There are 130 interactive displays like this, as well as a 3D film that is updated every few months.

3. Musée Historique de Strasbourg

The historic museum of Strasbourg, also on the River Ill, is located in the city's former slaughterhouse and deals with the time between the Middle Ages and the 18th century. There are arms, maps, clothes, drawings and sculptures to help explain the complicated history of a city on the physical, as well as on the social, economic and political, nexus of the entire continent. The shining star of the collection is a relief plan dating back to 1727. This is a rather accurate 1/600 scale model of Strasbourg and its surroundings, covering almost 80 square meters. The detail is such that you can see all the major landmarks, and, indeed, the Ponts Couverts were still hidden when the model was made!

4. Eglise Saint-Pierre le Jeune

Saint-Pierre le Jeune is noteworthy because for 200 years it was split between two Protestants and Catholics: the Protestants received the nave, while the Catholics used the choir. The building also has architecture from several different periods. In the crypt, for example, are the remains of the Columban Church from the 600s, and the cloister is mainly Romanesque, dating back to the 1000s. The nave and its vivid frescoes date from the 14th and 15th centuries. In the gallery there is an organ of the 18th century designed by Johann Andreas Silbermann, the same man in charge of the organ at the Church of Saint-Thomas in Strasbourg. Like the one in the gallery, this instrument has national popularity and was used by the organist Helmut Wacha to record the works of Bach.

5. Alsatian Food

If the culture and architecture of Strasbourg are a mixture of German and French customs, the same applies to food. Choucroute is an obvious entry point, with sauerkraut (fermented cabbage with a sour taste) mixed with various types of sausages, including frankfurters and smoked Morteau, as well as pork and potato cuts. Another classic served in typical 'stubs' around the old quarters is tarte flambée, bread dough rolled out, filled with fresh cheese and topped with onion and lardons.

6. Wine and Beer

Alsace is the only French wine region in which most of the wines produced are varietal and thus made only with grapes that give them their name. The most popular two are Gewürtztraminer, typically spicy and sweet and sometimes served with dessert or drunk as an aperitif, and Riesling, which is dry, complex and blends well with Alsatian classics such as choucroute and pan-fried carp. Strasbourg is also a blessing in the middle of France's most fertile beer area, with hops rising west and north of the city. From September 2016, Meteor launched a 90-minute guided tour followed by a tasting session.

7. European Parliament

When you reflect on the past of the city, it makes perfect sense for Strasbourg to be home to the European Parliament, as it has always been a place where different cultures, religions and languages have been reconciled. Strasbourg is one of the three non-capital cities in the world that has a international institution, and the European Parliament needs to be on your itinerary. You're going to have to call ahead for a tour of this futuristic cylindrical structure, containing the 750-seat Chamber of Debate. There are three "inner avenues" inside, one of which has a winter garden with a forest of philodendrons. 

8. Église Saint-Thomas

Another proof that Strasbourg is at a cultural crossroads is the Protestant Church, which was the only Lutheran place of worship before Strasbourg became part of France in 1681. Église Saint-Thomas was built in the 1520s and is the only example of a German-style hall church in the region. This means that, unlike most of the churches in France, the nave and the aisles are of the same height. They are placed under one roof, and the clergy (windows to light the nave) are absent. There is much to be found inside, including the great Gothic fresco of St. Michael and the magnificent Romanesque sarcophagus of Bishop Adeloch from the 1100s. Finally, turn your attention on the gallery organ of 1741, which Mozart praised when he played it in 1778.

9. The City Hall

One of the buildings in Stockholm is the City Hall, which is unmistakable with its 106 m spiral and tower. The Gostave Vasa, made up of eight million bricks, is the ultimate representation of the Nordic romantic style. It opened 400 years to the day after the arrival of Gustav Vasa in the city in June 1923. The space inside is spellbinding in size, particularly the Blue Hall, which hosts the Nobel Banquet every month of December. The tower and the view of Stockholm is an significant part of any visit.

10. Palais des Rohan

This baroque Episcopal Palace was designed in the 1720s according to the designs of Robert de Cotte, the "first architect" of Louis XV. It is a beautiful building, constructed for Cardinal Armand-Gaston de Rohan-Soubise, Prince Bishop of Strasbourg, and loved for its high classical façade. It has been based on the grand mansions in Paris since then, and the interior is as opulent as you might have expected. There are three museums on the inside, an archeological display in the basement, decorative art on the ground level, and a display of fine art on the first level.
