The Pause Show

To make the most of your stay in Strasbourg this summer, at night or during the day, hit “Pause”!

A show that encourages contemplation

In Strasbourg this summer, you’ll likely spend some of your evening around the Cathedral.

Enjoy a show combining lights, projection mapping and sound and contemplate the beauty of Strasbourg Cathedral, an architectural jewel.

The visual show is highlighted by a sound design combining works by Ludwig van Beethoven, to celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth, with soundscapes from Strasbourg.

During the day, too

During the daytime, too, take your time and linger over the details of Strasbourg’s architectural heritage. It’s easy. Use the app and go on a “sound stroll”.

With “Pause-Beethoven”, thanks to geolocation, your stroll through the streets will take you to the city’s most iconic sites, conducive to contemplation, as you listen to works by Beethoven, picked especially for each place. There are about forty spots where you can linger, while (re)discovering Beethoven’s most intimate pieces.

For kids, a treasure hunt lasting about thirty minutes, called “Sound Hunters”, is also available in the app. As they walk around, sounds will be triggered, telling them which way to go to find the treasure…
