Strasbourg is always worth a visit.

Oberkirch has been connected to Strasbourg for centuries, being the summer residence of the Bishops of Strasbourg. Even when Oberkirch became a part of Baden in the year 1803, it remained close to Strasbourg. Until the beginning of World War I, the affluent population of Strasbourg, like the bishops before, kept summer homes in Oberkirch.

Directions: it is a 25 km drive from Oberkirch to Strasbourg. The fastest and most convenient way is by car. Strasbourg offers a multitude of parking facilities. Further information at www.parcus.com.

Sightseeing: An absolute must is the famous Cathedral the architectural structure is as impressive on the outside as it is inside.

Recommendations: visit the astronomical clock in the south portal at 12:30 PM, preceded by a slide show. Children and adults alike can watch the Apostles passing by Jesus and a rooster crowing and flapping its wings.

Right behind the Cathedral in the heart of the city is the “Place du Marché Gayot”, a beautiful and quiet area with bars in restaurants.

The Office de Tourisme (17, Place de la Cathedrale) offers a small guide “Ballades Strasbourgeoises” with recommendations for a number of walking tours through different epochs of architecture. There is so much to discover – even for connaisseurs of the city!

The former tanner quarter “La Petite France” located right on the Ill river is idyllic and a popular tourist attraction.

The European Parliament is another interesting stop.

A number of museums, e.g. the “Münsterbauhaus” adjacent to the Cathedral, are always worth a visit.
