The view from the top of the Barrage back across the town was wonderful and one could spend quite a while wondering how life was at that time.

It is next to the art Museum d´Art Moderne and on the road to Petit France.
It has great views and its acess is free.

If you approach Strasbourg old town from that side, it is worth to walk through this covered bridge and also visit the terrasse on the room from which you enjoy a very nice view over the old town. During the nice season especially at sunset, there is a warm yellowish light which makes the view even more characteristic. Watch out that the bridge closes in the evening. Besides the bridge there is a parking and it is 5 minutes from Petit France.

I love the views towards Petite France from atop the barrage. The only drawback is the barrage closes at 1900 effective 1 Sep so I didn't get to see dusk from atop the barrage. The opening hours vary due to the season...

The views from atop the barrage are some of the best photo ops in Strasbourg.

Walking on the roof terrace of this big old dam gives a great view of Pont Couverts with the Notre Dame Cathedral in the background. Well worth a short visit if the weather is good.
