Join me on a walking tour of Strasbourg! We’ll talk about its origins as a Roman camp, the moments of glory as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Germanic Empire, its millenary cathedral, Strasbourg and the events of the French Revolution and how the Marseillaise was written down in this city (yeah, weird, right?) and we will visit the canals of the Petite France. But I want to offer you something else (and that no one else will), as a lover of History, I’m passionate concerning stories of WW2, so we will have a conversation regarding Strasbourg during its darker years, from its bombing in 1870 by the Prussian troops, the return into France after the First World War and the life of the town throughout the Second World War. We will talk about the Nazi occupation of Strasbourg, from the life experiences of Anne-Marie, my girlfriend's grandmother, (she is still alive and happy that I'm sharing her life with you!) and share with you some of her family photos and letters!
We will walk by places that saw their original names changed, like the old Adolf Hitler Platz, the Karl Roos Platz, we will walk outside the former Kommandantur and all that while I tell you about the American bombardments that the city suffered allowing the entrance of the allied forces.
By the way! This experience is dog friendly and feel free to ask if the time proposed for a tour doesn't fit your schedule
