An interesting contrast to the more usual tourist centre around Petit France and shows a totally different period architecture with grand civic buildings and Germanic origins. Should be a part of any tour of Strasbourg.

Walking between these buildings in this area, one has to admire the richness in variety in styles. Even during an evening walk, these buildings remain special.

Although this wasn't my favourite style of building it was worth walking up to the see the grand buildings of the Place de la Republique and wandering around a couple of blocks in each direction form there as part of getting a feel for Strasbourg as a whole

Just like the old centre, this is a place you should really go to. There is lots to see, and it is all at walking distance from the centre.

After walking the Medieval parts of Strasbourg we were interested in visiting La Nuestadt, so called because when the Germans conquered in 1870 they decided to move the Administration and Emperors Palace to this area. The walking booklet is extremely informative and you will see many impressive sandstone buildings and Churches. The Municipal Baths are closed at present but the exterior is worth seeing, Eglise St Paul with it's many clocks on the steeples, The Post Office and of course the imperial Palace. A remarkable building project given that the Germans only ruled this area until 1918.

A must when in Strasbourg.
Enjoy the unique German architecture of the 19th century.
Enjoy your walk through the streets of this area rich in History:

After the defeat of France in 1870, the majority of the area faced extensive and serious damage.

Germans planned to build an extension for the city and proposed completing the construction in five years. They were concerned about efficient infrastructure and wanted for the "Reichsland Alsace-Lorraine", an exemplary capital, grandiose, all to the glory of the Empire and Germanity.

Thus, in April 1880, they approved the master plan of the new city, 386 hectares in addition to the 230 hectares of the old core. The author of the project is J.-G. Conrath, municipal architect since 1849. He first provides a prestigious area reserved for official buildings (imperial palace, ministries, headquarters of the regional assembly, library and university).

The whole thing is finished around 1900.

The other sector, with its neighborhoods of collective or individual housing, advances more slowly and continues after 1920.

This is a very interesting urban creation that has almost no equivalent following the destruction of World War II; it is made up of squares, broad, airy avenues, adorned with trees, and several sites where the monumental and a keen sense of "landscape".

A very quite part of the city. Beautifull houses, a lot of them originally Art Nouveaux architecture. There has been more than 700 Art Nouveaux building in the city, today there are maybe 50. But they are excellent.
