Strasbourg is a city that combines both German and French cultures, due to this it is filled with museums, monuments and old buildings. In the centre is the gothic ‘Cathedrale de Notre Dame’, which took 300 years to build and was originally built on top of a Roman temple in 1015. There is a museum dedicated to the cathedral and the arts between the 11th and 17th centuries nearby. It is ideal for bike tours because of its well-preserved city centre easily accessible for pedestrians.
