Strasbourg is a city of art and history characterised by its stunning architectural variety. Ever since it was founded more than 2,000 years ago, it has been a strategic geographical intersection point in Europe; it is also classified as a “World Heritage” by UNESCO. Some of its most outstanding sites are the Grande Île and its gems dating back to the Middle Ages (the Gothic Cathedral, Saint-Thomas’ Church, etc.), the Petite France district and its typical Alsatian half-timbered homes, Neustadt, the European Quarter, etc.
Strasbourg has always been a trailblazer for this mode of transport which was given a new lease of life in 1994 by the city’s ambitious project. The system now covers a network of 45 km. It serves the city, 6 peripheral municipalities and even the small town of Kehl in Germany. What’s more, with its 560 km of cycling lanes, Strasbourg can stake a claim to be France’s cycling capital!
