Strasbourg, my destination



A city of gatherings, of art, of history, a city with a cosmopolitan, up-to-the-minute and international flavour, Strasbourg holds pride of place in an ever-changing Europe.

From its majestic Notre Dame Cathedral to its works of art dotted around the city centre, Strasbourg - a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site - proudly showcases its history. The city, which has stood at the cultural crossroads since time immemorial, is a European Capital: the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, the European Pharmacopoeia, the European Science Foundation and the International Space University are all firmly rooted there.
