“Boring ..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Gives a nice view to les Ponts Couverts, but after walking through la Petite France, it's not impressive at all. It's free and you can walk from one end to the other in 2 minutes, so that's fine, but all in all, I was not impressed with this place compared to other areas in Strasbourg.

“Beautiful views towards the Pont Couverts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Thank goodness, the years long construction to repair this site was recently finished so the barrage has reopened. Unfortunately, the top open "balcony" closes at 1900 in April so evening/dusk views from atop the barrage are not possible. However, you can still walk through the barrage from one side of the river basin to the other. We spent Saturday in Strasbourg and found out too late that the top closes at 1900... So, on our way home (after hiking in Rosheim, south of Strasbourg) on Sunday I stopped at the barrage to get the photo ops I'd missed the previous day. Beautiful view of the Pont Couvert, Petite France, and the cathedral tower in the background. It's a nice place to sit and soak in the wonderful views of Strasbourg.

“Passing through or soaking the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Inside you can see the statues which were once on the cathedrale and on the roof, you can have a view on Petite France and the Pont Couverte
