Location information for Strasbourg

Introduction

Strasbourg is fantastic for a city break. It has a beautiful historical center (Grande Île), that was marked as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1988. In the centre of Strasbourg is the Notre Dame Cathedral, but don't forget to visit Petite France, a picturesque area with half-timbered houses. In December there is a large atmospheric Christmas market.

Population

The city has more than 270,000 inhabitants, but including the area surrounding Strasbourg, the population is more than half a million people.

Location

Strasbourg is located in the northeast of France, near the border with Germany, on the Ill river which flows into the Rhine in the city. Alsace has always been a disputed area between Germany and France. The last time Germany annexed the city was during World War II.

Economy

Many institutions of the European Union are established in Strasbourg. Almost 9 out of 10 of the working class people work in either the public administration or the service sector. Yet there are also some industries in Strasbourg: automotive, pharmaceutical companies and two large breweries (Fischer and Kronenbourg). 

Airports

The international airport is in Entzheim, about 20 kilometers southwest of the city. With a rental car you can reach the airport from the city center in about 20 minutes: follow highway A35 and take Exit 8 (Entzheim Aéroport). From the center you can also follow the D392 where you can take a right turn exit to the airport just before Entzheim.

Public transportation

The five tram lines form the heart of the public transportation system in Strasbourg. These ultra modern trams run very frequently. The transport company Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois (CTS) also operates an extensive bus line. 

Traffic and parking

The historical centre of the city is mainly auto free. In the rest of the city it is not difficult to find your way. You can park your rental car in one of the parking garages or one of the P+R terrains on the outskirts of the city. Furthermore, a rental car is an excellent form of transportation to explore the surroundings of Strasbourg. So you can drive in one hour to the historical town of Colmar.

Hotels

There is a great variety of hotels in Strasbourg, but keep in mind that many European institutions (notably the European Parliament) need hotel rooms for their representatives and officials. The prices are also high. The simple hostels are an option for budget travelers; these accommodations also have less problems with the influx of members of the European Parliament and their entourage. Also during the Christmas Market in December many hotels are fully booked.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
