Strasbourg & Kehl : French-German Walking Tour on the border

3. Strasbourg & Kehl : French-German Walking Tour on the border

One of Strasbourg ‘s special features is its proximity to Germany. Whether by streetcar, on foot, by bike or by car, the Rhine is crossed every day by many workers and private individuals. The Jardin des Deux Rives is a symbol of this proximity. Here, you can stroll along both banks of the Rhine, enjoy a sunny afternoon, go jogging or go shopping. On the German side, we’ll talk about life on the border and the cultural and architectural differences between the two countries. Our tour begins at the Coopérative district, a neighborhood in the making, which we’ll cross before joining the Jardin des Deux-Rives. We’ll then cross the bridge separating the two countries to reach Kehl. Inaugurated in 2003, this pedestrian and cycle-only bridge enables many people from Strasbourg to travel to Germany every day, whatever the time of day. It is one of the symbols of the freedom of movement that characterizes the member countries of the European Union. The town of Kehl, opposite Strasbourg, is a little foretaste of Germany. You’ll discover this charming little town, the first German city to cross the Rhine.

What people are saying about Strasbourg

Loved this! Exceeded my expectations of the historical Alsace villages. It felt like we went back in time and walked down the cobblestone streets. I can see why Beauty and the Beast was inspired by these villages! I wish the audio tour talked more about the culture and how people lived and their day to day lives rather than so much on how different wars impacted the villages. Our guide was a wonderful driver! LOVED the convertible van, it had charging stations and WiFi! The windows were plenty big so we could take lots of pictures.

Very nice experience, beautiful sunny day, the region is magnificent. Visit of several villages (about ten) some of which on foot. The time given to visitors is correct. The vehicle is very pleasant, convertible. The driver is a good driver and multilingual. I highly recommend. I will definitely repeat the experience.

Loubna was a great guide and the various foods we tried were fantastic. Cheeses, saucisses, bretzels, plus a fabulous lunch and a dessert of tarte flambee. Terrific day. Thank you so much.

We tried all of the local foods and there was plenty of food. Bonus was we got to hit all the main areas of Strasbourg since it’s a walking tour.

A perfectly timed day to really get to see many of the most charming villages on the Alsatian Wine Route.
