Whether you’re following the legendary Alsace Wine Route, holiday shopping at the city’s hugely popular Christmas Market or cruising along the Rhine River, Strasbourg is the kind of destination where you’ll always wish you had more time. With just three days to take in the highlights, here are a few ideas to help plan your visit. 

Day 1: Take a walking tour of the Grande Île
Strasbourg’s water-ringed Grande Île is the heart of the historic city and the best way to get around is on foot, so kick off your trip with a walking tour of the city’s top attractions. Start out with a walk around La Petite France, a historic district full of medieval half-timbered houses and winding canal ways, then make a beeline for the imposing Cathedral of Notre Dame, which boasts the best views in the city. Spend the afternoon exploring the museums of the neighboring Palais Rohan before enjoying an atmospheric dinner at the medieval Maison Kammerzell. 

Day 2: Explore the canals and parks
Soak up the sights from the water with a boat ride along the River Ill, cruising around the Grand Île, exploring the city’s scenic canal ways and passing landmarks like the Covered Bridges and the Vauban Dam. Back on dry land, tuck into some traditional Alsace food like Tarte flambée (local-style pizza) or Choucroute (sauerkraut) for lunch, then escape to the tranquil Orangerie Park, where you’ll find a network of walking trails, a boating lake and even a small zoo.

Day 3: Escape to the country
With the Alsace wine region, Germany’s Black Forest and the Rhine valley all close by, you’ll be spoiled for choice of day trips from Strasbourg. Opt for a half-day or full-day tour of the Alsace Wine Route, stopping to taste the region’s celebrated white wines and visit highlights like the medieval town of Colmar and the mountaintop High Koenigsbourg Castle, or hop over the German border to explore the spa town of Baden Baden in the Black Forest.
