Other than the uncontestable charm of the old town, the "European capital" offers the peace and change of scenery conducive to a break with friends or a romantic weekend with a significant other. Les Collectionneurs offers a wonderful selection of establishments where you can stay or grab a bite to eat in Strasbourg and Alsace.
The capital of Alsace is easily accessed by rail and air, thanks to its international airport, from the main French towns and also from Germany and Belgium. The site of the European Parliament, the town is a gateway to Europe. But Strasbourg also has a strong regional heritage which you will discover on the Grande Île, home to the oldest Gothic cathedral in the world, private mansions and medieval churches. A stroll will take you to the Place Gutenberg, named after the inventor of printing who lived in Strasbourg. Another landmark is Place Kleber, where the annual Christmas market, or Christkindelsmärik, is held. The Vauban dam is a sight not to be missed. A fabulous view of the maze of canals of Strasbourg can be enjoyed from its panoramic terrace. The town can also be seen from aboard a boat leaving from Neustadt, the imperial German district and on to the modern district housing the European institutions via the edge of the grounds of the Orangery.
Strasbourg is a great place to visit in all seasons. Though in winter the cobbled streets winding between the wood-timbered houses of Little France create a cosy atmosphere, the old town is just as lovely in summer when the quays on the island and the covered bridges are decked with geraniums. The town centre of Strasbourg is on the Grande Île and all of it is designated a UNESCO world heritage site. From the majestic Notre-Dame cathedral to the Rohan Palace, Little France offers an idyllic stopover to travellers who want to explore the Alsatian capital on foot.
For family holidays, breaks with friends or a romantic stay, it may be better to opt for a lovely hotel tucked away in intramural Strasbourg. Les Collectionneurs offer characterful hotels and guesthousesall with unique decor and a warm welcome. Their comfortable rooms are equipped with top quality bedding, and a fully-equipped bathroom, with shower or bath. All modern comforts are provided, including air conditioning, free WiFi access and a flat-screen television. Breakfast, available as continental or buffet style, is as generous as it is locally-oriented, offering local produce from kougelhopf to fine Alsatian cured meats.
For the convenience of travellers to Strasbourg, each establishment offers luggage storage and a concierge. Despite their proximity to public transport, these hotels all also offer free parking. Advance online booking is possible. These hotels are also ideal for families travelling together, with their spacious rooms and suites which can comfortably accommodate couples with children. Parents also have access to a babysitting service upon request so that they can take time to stroll child-free round the old town. Pets are equally welcome.
For a short stay, an overnight stopover or a few nights as a family, the warm welcome of a hotel or guesthouse can help create unforgettable memories. The authentic establishments selected by les Collectionneurs embody the spirit of the Grand-Est region. In Strasbourg, you can book a charming room tucked below massive wooden beams and decorated with period furniture. A beautiful residence nestled in the heart of the old town of Strasbourg makes the ideal cosy atmosphere for a romantic getaway.
An area also renowned for its wines, Alsace also boasts its own wine route. Some establishments in Strasbourg will even let guests in to the secrets of winemaking. After tasting a vintage riesling, travellers may spend the night in an elegant hotel and relax in the intimacy of a contemporary terrace. This dip into the Alsatian vintages might be followed by a visit to the vineyards to the South of Strasbourg.
What better to recharge the batteries than a spa hotel tucked into the ramparts of a mediaeval city with heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room? True tranquillity can be found on the Kochersberg, the Alsation plain, lying between Strasbourg and the Vosges.
In Starsbourg and more generally throughout Alsace, gastronomy is a way of life and an integral part of the culture. Choucroute, baeckeoffe, tarte flambée, spaetzle are many such specilaities to be enjoyed in the "winstubs", little taverns with cosy atmospheres. Alsatian cuisine. which is peasant fare at its roots, has been refined over time thanks to the creativity of passionate restaurateurs with great pride in their land. Les Collectionneurs have selected these kinds of restaurants.
