Hotel close to Strasbourg cathedral
The Hotel Rohan is an ideal base for exploring Strasbourg, a European capital with so much to discover.
Strasbourg cathedral and city centre
The Hotel Rohan is located in Strasbourg city centre, in the heart of the Grande Ile, with the entire island listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just a few steps away from our hotel, at the top of the street, stands the majestic gothic Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg. Reaching a height of over 142 metres, it is France's second highest cathedral after Rouen Cathedral. Make sure to visit this building, which is impressive both for its size and for its architecture and sculpted decoration. To find out more, visit the Œuvre Notre-Dame Museum, where you can learn all about the history of this unique construction.
Mere paces from the hotel, you can step on board a river boat and drift along the Ill river to see Strasbourg in a whole new light. From the water, you can admire the city's architecture, the Covered Bridges and other fortifications created by Vauban, as well as the European Institutions.
Take some time to wander through the streets of Strasbourg. You will be enchanted by the typically picturesque streets and squares lined with Haussmann-style buildings and half-timbered houses. As the city centre is completely pedestrianised, you can peacefully explore one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Stroll along the river banks, explore Little France – the city's most iconic district – and even set off on a bike ride if you're feeling particularly active.
And in winter, make sure to visit the world-famous Strasbourg Christmas Market, Visit the countless crafts stalls in Place Broglie or next to the cathedral, paces from the hotel, in a festive atmosphere beyond compare.Strasbourg Tourist Office Website
There are many museums in Strasbourg. Just steps from the hotel is the unmissable Rohan Palace, a former residence of prince-bishops built in the 18th century. It is named after the Cardinal Rohan, who was also the inspiration behind the name of our hotel. This palace, located just next to the cathedral, houses three large museums: the Museum of Decorative Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Archaeological Museum.
Next to the Rohan Palace, you can find the OEuvre Notre-Dame Museum where you can discover some magnificent works of sculpture dating from the Middle Ages. You can also visit the adjacent medieval garden, a pleasant way to round off your visit. A few moments away, on the banks of the river, you can relive our region's traditional culture at the Alsatian Museum.
