MUST-SEE

Notre-Dame cathedral:

Nothing prepares you for your first glimpse of Strasbourg's Cathedral, completed in all its Gothic grandeur in 1439. The lace-fine façade lifts the gaze little by little to flying buttresses, leering gargoyles and a 142m spire. The interior is exquisitely lit by 12th- to 14th-century stained-glass windows, including the western portal's jewel-like rose window. The Gothic-meets-Renaissance astronomical clock strikes solar noon at 12.30pm with a parade of figures portraying the different stages of the life of Jesus with his Apostles.

HISTORY OF THE CITY

The site of Strasbourg is occupied since the age of Bronze. The Romans built the camp of Argentoratum. The Roman city lost importance to the fall of the empire and from 496, the Francs set up a new city. In the Middle Ages the city enjoyed a growing prosperity. It was attached to France with Alsace in 1681. In 1870, after the defeat of France against Prussia, Strasbourg with Alsace were annexed by Germany. At the end of the World War I, France recovered it in 1918, before it lost it again in 1940 to Nazi Germany. After the war, Strasbourg became the seat of the Council of Europe in 1949, the Court of Human Rights in 1950, in 1952 the European Coal and Steel Community and in 1979 the European Parliament.
