SPRING IS COMING!
The characterful Arok Hotel can be found in the centre of Strasbourg, close to the rail station, perfect for business or pleasure, whether you are along, as a couple or with your family. Essential places of interest within a ten minute walk in the city centre include the UNESCO world heritage site:
Built between 1015 and 1439, with a 16th century astronomical clock and a magnificent rose window, the Strasbourg Cathedral is a Gothic masterpiece described by Victor Hugo as “a gigantic and delicate marvel”.
The single 142-metre spire is a light and elegant wonder.
Until the 19th century, the cathedral was the tallest Christian building.
Located next to Strasbourg Cathedral, the Palais Rohan - originally an episcopal residence - is now the location of three museums:
The Protestant St. Thomas’ Church is a wonderful example of Alsatian Gothic art.
Its choir hosts the impressive mausoleum of Maurice de Saxe: an 18th century Baroque funerary art masterpiece.
Located in the Strasbourg Cathedral square, the Maison Kammerzell has a unique decorative façade.
With three corbelled floors, the sculptures and paintings mix secular and sacred themes inspired by the Bible, Greek and Roman antiquity and the Middle Ages.
The Vauban dam, also known as the Great Lock or the Vauban terrace, is a defensive bridge classified as a historic monument.
It is located just a few metres from the Ponts Couverts and therefore was used to flood the southern front of the city in the event of an attack.
At the top of the building, a panoramic terrace offers an incredible view over the city and its canals.
The most picturesque quarter in old Strasbourg, La Petite France is built on the waterfront.
The magnificent half-timbered houses date from the 16th and 17th centuries, homes to fishermen, millers and tanners.
located in the heart of Strasbourg.
