Walk in Strasbourg

A walk to visit Strasbourg, its canals, its cathedral and its museums.

The walk presented is quite long, we can make stops and quench our thirst with a good beer to rest. Strasbourg is a very beautiful city surrounded by canals which gives it a very natural side. The visit can be done in any season, but we will have a small preference for the autumn and the Christmas period with the famous Christmas market of Strasbourg.
