Strasbourg, 2,000 years ago, and it was the Romans who were here!
Originally a Roman camp, it served as a fort to protect their legions from attacks from the rear as they advanced towards the Elbe.
The streets of this small and fortified area built on a marshy island on the River Ill later became the city of Strasbourg.
Strasbourg, has belonged to France and Germany over the years.
Strasbourg became an independent city in 1262 with the fall of the Roman Empire.
1871, Germany - France's next-door neighbour invaded France in the Franco-Prussian War and declared Strasbourg as German.
1918 and WWI, Strasbourg belongs to France again.
WWII, June 1940, Germany took over again.
November 23, 1944, Strasbourg was officially liberated and returned to France.
Strasbourg holds the reputation for being one of the most beautiful cities in all of France.
I AGREE, IT'S A BEAUTIFUL CITY TO SPEND TIME IN!
Strasbourg can be explored by BOAT, by PETIT TRAIN, by PUSH BIKE and walking with an AUDIO GUIDE or without one!*
