What you'll do

For 3000 years, Strasbourg has watched extraordinary people and historic events unfold on her streets. Let's meet at Austerlitz Square, around the 3D city map. I'll tell you how people changed world history, passing through Strasbourg in the center of Europe. From the Roman Empire to the European Union, through Clovis, Vauban, Kellermann and Leclerc. Ponder how our cultures are similar or exactly... different. On our way to the Neustadt, we'll discover the local culture and architecture. The German imperial district was built in late 19th century and has been protected by UNESCO since 2017 (its historical center is UNESCO-protected since 1988). From the majestic university, Republic square, Broglie and Kleber Squares, La Petite France, to the quays and Cathedral. Statues, monuments, street art and other unusual and secret places are waiting for you to reveal themselves and millions of travelers miss these stunning details ! I'll give you tips on where to taste local food, events, villages and castles to visit (among the most beautiful in France) and the best hikes in our mountains. And why not have dinner or hike together

Maxime

I grew up loving History (movies, research, games). I have hosted people from all over the world, showing them around my city. 4 years later, I left my day job to live my passion : spread culture. I am even more enthousiastic because some people have told me "I didn't like History in school, now I do." This tour is always unique, depending on the people : where they come from, their passions.

What's included

Food
You'll taste "bredeles" (alsacian biscuits).
Equipment
I can take pictures of you with my phone or with your camera/phone.
