2-Hour Strasbourg Euro Tour by Segway

Strasbourg’s UNESCO-listed Grande Île is mostly pedestrianized and a Segway tour offers a fun and efficient way to get around, and explore further than you could on foot. On this tour, glide around the scenic canal ways of La Petite France, then leave the island to tour the European Quarter and admire the German architecture of the Neustadt.

Located next door to the Strasbourg Cathedral. On the ground floor of the Rohan Palace. Former residence of Rohan family, then bishop's and cardinal residences. Reminded me of Versailles Palace or the Munich Residence. If you haven't visited those palaces, you should visit this one. Free on the first Sunday of the month, 6.50 Euros to enter or get the day pass for 12.50 Euros and see all three museums here! Hours are 10 am-6 pm Wednesday - Monday, Closed on Tuesdays. The front desk people accept credit cards and speak English.

The Palais du Rohan has 3 Museums, one of which is the Musée des Arts Décoratifs/Museum of Decorative Arts. This museum is located on the ground floor of the palace. This museum has 2 reasons for visiting it. One is the fine collection of 18th century china (Hannong ceramics known for its floral decoration), jewellery, and clocks in the Decorative Arts Wing, formerly the stables. Included in the clock collection is the first version of the Astronomical Clock in the Cathedral which was made in the 14th century. The second reason to visit this museum is to see the palace apartments adjacent to the Decorative Arts Wing. Eight rooms have been refurbished to look like 18th century style rooms used during Rohan’s time in the palace. He was the wealthy Prince-Bishop who had built the palace in 1732 -1742. Expect to see gilded stucco trim on the walls, ceramic fireplaces, portrait paintings, tapestries, period furniture, and canopied beds. One bedroom was done up in French Empire style as it was a room set aside for Napoleon’s use when he used the palace. The bed was amazingly small - set into a wall niche – but impressively styled with a green canopy. Another bedroom used for visits by the king prior to the Revolution was interesting. It had a low white barrier/fence that separated the king's bed and dressing area from the courtiers who were watching on the other side of that barrier. The ticket office for the 3 palace museums is approached from the inner courtyard on the side of Place du Chateau; use the door on the left corner. A multilingual sign in the inner courtyard points the way to that door. There is only that one ticket office for the 3 museums which are located in different wings and floors of the palace. In the hallway outside the ticket office, there were no signs indicating how to get to each museum - a bit confusing. The admission price is the same for all 3 museums in the palace. Each is 6.50E/3.50E seniors. Other museums in the city like the Alastian Museum or Historical Museum also have the same admission price. Consider buying a Museum day pass if you plan on visiting several museums - 12 E/6E seniors. Consult the Strasbourg Museum website to ensure the museums you want to visit will be open on that day.

Worth walking around just for the splendid setting in the huge rooms. The pottery displays are local and extensive and well set out, but I think you have to be into that to find them really interesting ( part of the 3 for 1 offer which is well worth taking up)

We found this museum just wslking around. The tour that we where on ended on one side of catheral and we found saw a building on the other side and went cheched it out. To our suprise it was this museum along with to other museum. We paid 6 euros for enterance to all three. The museum is well laid out with good discriptions, they also give you a guide in english that gives you more info on the items. We run out of time and did not see the 2 museum do to our needing to depart early then planed.
