Welcome to Strasbourg !

Strasbourg's 2000 year history has taken it from being a prosperous merchant city to its current position as capital of the peoples of Europe, from a centre for humanist thinking to a thriving hub of creators and entrepreneurs.

With its blend of cultures, innate tolerance, ecological awareness and embodiement of the European spirit, Strasbourg is a highly attractive, yet contemporary city. A multifaceted image, which is the basis of its originality.

Europe is alive here - the Europe of democracy, the Europe which belongs to its citizens, is being constructed here to deal with the major issues currently facing our society, such as education, industrial modernisation, solidarity, the change in energy sources and eco-responsibility.

Strasbourg, inspired perhaps by the soaring steeple of its cathedral, is a city where culture and business combine to form fertile ground for our future development.
