A remarkable combination of engineering masterpiece and an architectural monument. It also blends perfectly well into the surrounding urban landscape. Looks good from the river and the embankments.

This a must-go view in Stransbourg. It's free, you only have to climb a few steps to get there. There are binocles to rent there.

We saw this both on the boat tour and afterwards when we walked alongside the canal through la Petite France. Very interesting architecture and worth a close up view.

I like to pass by there and sit down for a few moments and enjoy the sight on the Ill. The building itself is quite impressive.

Good walk and stairs easy to climb. Great view over the city in both directions. Very picturesque, we got some lovely photos from the terrace.

Nothing spectacular but if you are there go and walk on the too. Some nice views! Inside is under construction when we were there.

Probably not worth a tour, but you should definitely walk through the bridge and take a look. There are quite a few old statues and decorative pieces of the original bridge inside.

Great place to see Strasbourg by night and also get an idea of how the canals work and the water source for the canals.
