Car & Van Hire in Strasbourg

Enterprise car hire locations in Strasbourg

Strasbourg is France's largest city, after Paris. It lies in the northeast of the country on the Franco-German border, which is defined by the River Rhine. The German town of Kehl is directly across the river from Strasbourg and is accessible by a recently built pedestrian bridge. Strasbourg is home to almost 300,000 people and hosts several universities, however, it is most famous as the seat of the European Parliament and a number of European-based organisations, such as the European Court of Human Rights. Throughout history, possession of the city was contested numerous times between Germany and France, a consequence of which is the blending of two cultures and an assimilation of architectural styles. The cuisine, too, blends traditional German staples such as sauerkraut with northern French gastronomy, such as hearty meat and vegetable stews. Strasbourg has a continental climate, which provides warm summers and cold, overcast winters, with frequent rain and occasional snow.

Attractions In Strasbourg

Strasbourg is an attractive, pedestrian-friendly city with a relatively small historical centre that can be easily navigated on foot. It is difficult to miss the Cathedral of Our Lady, with its 466-foot north tower that, until 1874, made it the tallest building in the world. The dominant architectural idiom is Gothic, although there are vestiges of Romanesque. Of particular interest is its beautiful Rose Window and elaborately decorated north facade. Visitors will find numerous other churches and religious buildings in the Medieval Quarter, such as Eglise Saint-Thomas, which houses a pipe organ once played by the composer, Mozart. Throughout the city, the influence of different architectural styles can be seen, from Gothic to Art Nouveau, in addition to more recent additions.

Places To Visit Outside Strasbourg

A 20-mile drive across the border into Germany will take you to Offenburg, a town of fountains and some very good architectural examples of French Baroque Classicisms. The town has numerous monuments and places of interest, including the palace of Frederick Barbarossa. The churches of Saint George and Saint Nicholas both date back to medieval times and contain interesting examples of church furnishings and ceremonial artefacts. Colmar is a French town, 45 miles south of Strasbourg. It is a charming old place, criss-crossed by canals. Colmar survived untouched through various historical upheavals, including the two World Wars. The history of the area is illustrated in the town's Interlinden Museum.

Parking And Traffic Information In Strasbourg

Driving on the main routes around Strasbourg is unproblematic, although, like everywhere, roads are busy during peak times and visitors should allow additional time for journeys. Driving in Strasbourg itself is another matter because it has a relatively small centre, much of which is pedestrianized, and even when it isn't, there are bridges and canals to navigate, which can cause congestion. Drivers should therefore have a reasonable knowledge of how the city is laid out and its one-way system. Parking in Strasbourg is divided into zones depending on length of stay. Whether parking on the street, in one of the many car parks or taking advantage of the park and ride, drivers shouldn't experience difficulty finding somewhere to park, particularly if they leave their car at the city's perimeter.
