Discover Strasbourg !

First in French universities

Founded in 1538, l'Université de Stras-bourg is ranked one of the best in the country.  It has the largest number of international students, four Nobel Prize laureates, and the oldest institute of French language teaching (FLE).

First in attractive cities

Le Point Magazine rates Strasbourg the best place to live in France for its extensive bicycle network and pedestrian-only historic down-town.  It is the most bikeable large city in the country and the second most happy city in France.

First in sport

RC Strasbourg football team is one of only six teams to win all three French national trophies, including the Coupe de la Ligue in 2019. SIG Strasbourg basketball team has been a finalist in the Pro A leage 5 times and won the championship in 2005.

First in European unity

Located on the French-German border, Strasbourg hosts more European institutions than any other French city, including the Council of Europe, the European Parliament, the European Court of Human Rights and Pharmacopeia.

First in public transportation

Strasbourg has the most extensive tram network in France with over 72km of lines.  With stops across the Rhine in Germany, it is one of the few international tram systems in the world.
