Discovering Ponts Couverts, Strasbourg

Where : Ponts Couverts,  Strasbourg, France

One of the main points to visit in Strasbourg is the Petite France historic centre. The paths will lead you to one of the most beautiful points of the city called “The Ponts Couverts”.  According to Wikipedia, the bridges erected in the 13th century on the River III.  They are essentially, sets of three bridges and four towers that make up a defensive work.

The towers, river, nature and historical buildings gives the impression of a magical Fairy Tale.  If you go to the Barrage Vauban you will get a panoramic view that you will never forget. Strasbourg has charm and the Ponts Couverts will heighten that sense.  We thought it was one of the most memorable and unique places we visited in Europe.  Most importantly, it’s totally FREE to walk around and get the panoramic views.
