As the town’s oldest park, the Orangerie is the favourite destination for young lovers, joggers and Sunday strollers. Children simply love its play areas, its vintage children car track, its miniature farm and its zoo (free of charge).
It was here that the stork, (once threatened with extinction), was successfully reintroduced. More than 800 young storks have been born since 1971. This beautiful bird which is also the symbol of Alsace can today be admired whatever the time of year. The lake with its romantic waterfall provides a won-derful opportunity to enjoy some excellent boating.
The "Pavillon Joséphine" (Joséphine Lodge) hosts numerous exhibitions and temporary events. The Buerehiesel, an attractive timber framed house, is home to a gourmet restaurant. The bowling centre and its terrace further add to the range of leisure facilities.

Strasbourg, Capital of Christmas (from 28 November)
In 2020, Strasbourg will be the Capital of Christmas again!
However, due to worsening health conditions, the Mayor of Strasbourg, in agreement with the Prefecture and the Regional Health Agency, have decided to organise it without chalets.
The magic and spirit of Christmas will still reign supreme: illuminations, carolling, exhibits and concerts, and, most importantly, our great Christmas Tree will make the holidays magical.
In Strasbourg, you must wear a face covering throughtout the city, even outside.
