A beautiful part of the city of Strasbourg set on islands in the river. Very picturesque, almost like a Disney Land of the Middle Ages, but this is real. We were amazed at how crowded this area was. Activities here include walking around, taking pictures, shopping and eating.

It is like a flash back of the medivel time where the buildings and roads are preserved from that time. The whole area of the Island Strasbourg is worth spending a full day.

Beautiful and picturesque. Surprised by the lovely views. Worth getting up early to walk around and wait for the shops to open. Downside - not the friendliest sales people encountered.

This quarter has the typical Alsacian houses, in different colors and surrounded by the river/canals in a different height. Beautiful...

Our last time in Strasbourg, we transited the city on a self-catering canal boat, so the brief stop we made that time only whetted our appetite to return. We were rewarded by nearly two perfect days to wander the river and canals and the streets above. All even more charming than we remembered. No shortage of places to linger for... More

Architecturally beautiful, this is the original part of Strasbourg which existed for centuries without sprawling outwards. It is culturally interesting because of its history being both german and french. I liked the huge array of shops and large number of eateries and the fact that it is so compact.
