Travel from Strasbourg city center to train station Strasbourg

Strasbourg is France's second most-visited tourist destination after Paris, and it's easy to see why. The part of the city situated within the Ill river - Grande Île - is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its famed historic quarter Petite France features cobblestone streets lined with half-timbered medieval houses and flower baskets hanging over balconies, creating a fairytale-like scene. The adjoining Neustadt has recently been included in the heritage site as well. The revered Strasbourg Cathedral is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, and mesmerizes visitors with its high spire, sculptured façade, and stained-glass windows. Meanwhile, the city is also the seat of the European parliament and features the second-largest student population in France - and it's the contrast that truly gives Strasbourg its unique character. Located on the border between Germany and France, Strasbourg has always been a city bridging cultures and differences. Train station Strasbourg is located just a few minutes' walk from Grande Île. The station provides access to several tram lines, that form the backbone of the city's efficient public transport network. Buses are available as well. Since big parts of the city are pedestrianized and made up of small one-way streets, getting around by car is not recommended. Strasbourg has an extensive cycling network and self-rental system for bikes, making cycling an interesting alternative.
