The combination of an attractive historic centre with the partial home of the European Parliament, Council of Europe and Court of Human Rights makes Strasbourg a great choice for a school trip, especially for groups wanting to enhance their understanding of the European institutions. The city is also famous for the Strasbourg Cathedral, the sixth tallest church in the world; for its traditional Christmas market, exquisite parks and distinctive traditional cuisine. Strasbourg is popular with groups studying a variety of subjects as it has something for everyone.
"The vast majority of important landmarks are located in the historic centre of the city, so it’s a great place to see on foot. Every building in the area has a unique history, be sure to visit the La Petite France area. It is worth visiting the stunning Medieval Cathedral and climbing the tower with views of the Black Forest some 30 miles away. A boat ride is a must to see the beauty of the city. Strasbourg is especially pretty during the Christmas Market which offers a mix of French/German cuisine,or try the local style pizza.”
