Strasbourg is famous for its beautiful historical center, the Grande Île, which was the first city center classified entirely as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Start off your visit on the 24th (Sun): pause for some serene contemplation at L'eglise de l'Invention-de-la-Sainte-Croix, then explore the historical opulence of Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, and then explore the world behind art at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Strasbourg. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Palais de Rohan, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, appreciate the history behind Monument a Kellermann, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg, and finally take a stroll through La Petite France.
