Strasbourg, capital of the Alsace region, is a city steeped in history. Relentlessly, it has been pulled to and fro from the clutches of France and Germany, leaving it not surprisingly, with somewhat of an identity crisis. This only makes Strasbourg, and the Alsace region, all the more worth visiting.

Walking around the city, you can't, and won't miss the giant Cathedrale de Notre-Dame. With beautifully crafted stained-glass windows, and a spire that affords a view of the Black Forest, it is a must-see. Another noteworthy site is the Musée de l'Oeuvre Notre-Dame. The museum houses a most impressive collection of art from the Middle Ages and Renaissance eras.

If you are fortunate enough to have your own transportation, then you won't be disappointed if you take the time to explore the surrounding regions of Alsace and Lorraine. Lorraine is Joan of Arc country; meanwhile, Alsace has such treasures as the historic town of Colmar.

Strasbourg is only 217kms southwest of Frankfurt, and is located about 4kms to the west of the Rhine. As you can imagine, the city has been heavily influenced by Germany. The confluence of the two cultures through history has given the city a unique appeal.

Strasbourg has a long and interesting history dating back as far as 12 BC, when the Romans decided to set up camp there. In 1566, the university was built - later Napoléon and Pasteur would be its proud students. The 20th century saw the great wars, and the city played host to a tug-of-war between France and Germany.

The international airport in Strasbourg is actually nine miles away from the city. The airport is serviced by most international carriers, and you should have no problem flying to Strasbourg. Trains arrive frequently from Paris and other larger cities; while, if you decide to travel by car, you won't be disappointed by the scenery.
