Beautiful square

This is a square between the Old France area and the cathedral and it has shops and restaurants surrounding it. It is a beautiful place to stroll or stop for a rest.

Garage under square. We used this as our central place to navigate from. Had parked car in underground (one of most secure I have seen). Cafes around square and a carousel to ride for all.

Johannes Gutenberg spent time here, around 14 years. There were about 80 presses working. Printing was the technological advance of the day and Strasbourg was at the center of it all.

it's not a place you have to visit or you'll miss something important, but more or less you will have to go through it, even though you won't understand it at first. The central tram lines go through there, the market is nearby, lots of cafes and shopping centres are around. Remember to look up, and admire the statue of... More

Other than the carousel and statue of Gutenberg, not much to see or do in this square. If you are short on time there is plenty other ways to spend your time.

This square is situated close to the Cathedral and is a good place to start exploring the area. There are many lovely buildings to look at as well and several restaurants.

Place Gutenberg is a nice enough square in the heart of the city, some impressive architecture surrounds it. Nice to see if you happen to be passing through, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it again.

This is a good public area to help you get oriented while exploring the medieval streets around this interesting city. I would encourage you to get 'lost' and explore each little section of this city.... ditch your map!

This square is pretty nice (even though construction was going on when we visited). The architecture is stunning and it costs nothing to have a look around. This was the starting point of our tour as this square also hosts an underground parking lot.
