    A collection unlike any other in the world

    Private museum, Arbogast collection

    The one-of-a-kind Château Vodou houses the largest private collection of West-African voodoo objects in the world.

    All the objects presented have been used in religious practices: ancestor worship, medicine, divination, witchcraft and many ceremonies associated with the key stages of life.

    Thanks to an outstanding exhibition design, the public discovers a little-known culture and a philosophy of life that is still widespread today.

    The collection, from Ghana, Benin, Togo and Nigeria, reveals its secrets in an exceptional setting: a water tower from 1878.

    Audio guides are available in French, German and English.

    Guided tours for groups (in French, German or English) are possible every day, by reservation (over 8 people).

Strasbourg, Capital of Christmas

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.
