Gourmand Strasbourg

The Historic Island of Strasbourg, listed as World Heritage by UNESCO, is home to many local merchants who honour the Alsatian terroir.

It is no coincidence that the locals always shop in the small local shops of the old town. At the heart of this neighborhood you will find the authentic atmosphere of Alsatian culture.

During our 4 hour tour immerse yourself in this unique place and live “Strasbourg Gourmand” by meeting its people.

For this visit, we have selected for you 10 typical tastings that will take place in 7 local shops where the owners will warmly open their doors to allow you to discover their products.
