Make your way to Place d’Austerlitz, where you’ll get fitted with a bike and meet a guide, and get a short introduction to Strasbourg before starting your bike ride. Ride through the atmospheric streets of the Old Town, passing Notre Dame de Strasbourg and the Pont de Corbeau across the Ill River. Follow the riverbank to the 17th-century Vauban Dam, pedalling beside picturesque covered bridges.
Continue into the imperial German district, the Neustadt, to see the Palais Universitaire, the Place de la République, and the Strasbourg Opera House, a 19th-century landmark that was rebuilt in Neoclassical style after after damage from Prussian artillery.
Get a look at daily life in Strasbourg’s pretty squares, from the Place Broglie to Place Gutenberg and Place Saint Etienne, which is flanked by homes in traditional style. Finish the 1.5-hour bike tour by riding back to Place d’Austerlitz, close to Strasbourg’s cafes, restaurants, and attractions.
