Culture Trip

For Francophiles and Germanophiles, there’s no better convergence of cultures than that of Strasbourg – a fairytale city steeped in medieval history, straddling the border between the two countries. Take your pick of patisseries and delicatessens; lose yourself in one of the oldest Christmas markets in Europe; or take in centuries of architecture during a stroll. Here, we round up the best hotels.

1. Hôtel D Strasbourg

Cherry red interiors add a punchy twist to this city-centre hotel. Rooms follow a more pared-back approach, with neutral colours and breezy blues; this relaxing tone carries through to soft supersize beds with more pillows than you could possibly want. If you really want to unwind, opt for a massage at the in-house spa before retiring to your room. Plonked in the pretty Fossé des Treize in the historic heart of downtown, you’ll be within easy roaming distance of the cathedral, Palais des Rohan, quaint canals and plenty of museums.

2. Hotel Régent Contades

Set inside a 19th-century mansion, this hotel exudes old-world opulence – think gilded furnishings and art nouveau flourishes in every corner, and a wood-panelled cocktail bar that harks back to the city’s medieval heyday. The old city is right on the doorstep of Régent Contades, so you won’t need to wander far to reach the cathedral and other historic sights. And if you grow tired of architecture, there’s always the option of indulging in one of several plant-based treatments in the hotel spa.

3. Maison Rouge

Art deco aficionados won’t know where to look here, with grand golden arches and plush velvet furnishings greeting them on arrival. The four-star Maison Rouge has been operating since 1387, so there’s often a story behind every piece of decor on display here. In the rooms, contemporary fixtures like freestanding egg-shaped bathtubs, super-fast wifi and Nespresso coffee machines bring all the necessary 21st-century elements into play. And when it’s time for some window shopping and cafe culture, the luxury boutique-lined Rue de la Mésange is just around the corner.

4. Pavillon RÉGENT PETITE France

Framed by the canals and locks of the River Ill, Pavillon Régent Petite France is set inside a 19th-century timber-beamed building within the medieval Petite France quarter. Some of the architecture here dates back as far as the 14th century – grab a map from the hotel to ensure you don’t miss the most striking facades. Back in the hotel, you’ll find a lavish spa replete with an outdoor hot tub, a sauna, a steam room and a waterside fitness centre. Rooms come furnished with king-size beds and Cinq Mondes toiletries, and overlook the winding streets of the old city.
