Discover all the most beautiful buildings in Strasbourg! The Ancienne Douane, the covered bridges, the Vauban dam, the Rhine Palace, Gallia, the European Parliament, the Palace of the Human Rights and many others. With them, we invite you to a real trip through the ages because more than two millennia of history in Strasbourg is narrated through the 3 emblematic districts of Strasbourg:
 
   The Big Island is the center of Strasbourg, surrounded by the two arms of the ILL River where you will browse. Its origin dates back to the establishment of a Roman camp in 12 BC. This sector has been classified, since 1988, as World Heritage site by UNESCO. You will see the Ancienne Douane House, the former ice houses, the covered Bridges, the Vauban dam, ENA.  You will have the unique opportunity to pass through 2 sluices.

    The Imperial or Neustadt district was built between 1871 and 1918 during the annexation of Alsace / Moselle by Germany.  This area has tripled the size of Strasbourg. In less than 50 years, Strasbourg was endowed with all the attributes of an imperial capital: the Rhine Palace to greet the German Emperor during his visits, the opera house, the Library, the Theater and an University that was the most modern in Europe at the moment of its creation.

    The European sector: at the end of the 2nd World War, Strasbourg was chosen as the headquarters of the Council of Europe, of what was then the European Community and today the European Union. All the buildings designed by renowned architects were built around the river on which you will navigate. ARTE, the Council of Europe, the European Parliament and its beautiful IPE4, the European Court of Human Rights ... will hold no secrets for you after your visit.
