Our Philosophy

In the Happy Strasbourg Team we have our own way to see things :

R

We are independent

We value our philosophy very much, therefore, in order to respect it, we remain independent, not affiliated to any organization other than us. For our love for Strasbourg we would not tolerate any compromise. And as such every tip, story and/or recommendation is inspired by the will to share the best bits of Strasbourg, the way we like it.

R

100% local guaranteed !

Because who could introduce you to the city better than the people living in it, and knowing the local culture from the inside? And as such we are able to give all the tips about what to do and where to go. Elise, Gabriel, Leo, Matthias and Remy were raised in Alsace, fed by alsatian food, immersed in local culture since childhood, we are ambassadors of our region.

R

Every tour is different

Because each of our guides created his own tour, regarding his own interests, specialities and personality. We are no robots, and therefore, each one has his own unique way to guide a tour and present things. And of course every one of you is different and we adapt our tours to our guests, because we love to exchange and interact with you!

R

Invested

Because while being fun-loving and openhearted, we take our job seriously and professionally, we give you the best of ourselves each and every guided tour, and try to answer every possible question, adapting ourselves to your interests and knowledge.

R

Passionate

Because we love our city and we love sharing it. We are eager to talk about everything and would hate to be boring, even for a minute.

R

You are 100% free

You can join our free tours whenever you want, no need to book, and you are free to leave whenever you want as well.

R

We are united

Happy Strasbourg is a member of the Free Tour Community, whose members are all local and independent initiatives, all operating under the “name your own price” model. Its new members are selected by current members on quality criteria, the most obvious of which is the overall rating given on sites like Tripadvisor. In this community we remain independent of each other, but we are committed to supporting each other to provide the highest quality cultural experiences and to promote the concept of free tours around the world. The idea is that by helping each other we all become better.

REVIEWS

They liked our tours and they say it !

October 2020

I learned a lot of things about the city and its history. The team is a fount of knowledge. Visiting Strasbourg, I had the chance to cross path with Leo, a member of Happy Strasbourg team. After the tour, we had lunch together, and Leo was still ready to answer my many questions!
Hope to see you again

Very well done. Our guide, Leo, was amazingly informative and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

September 2020

We were at the Strasbourg‘s Cathedral when we randomly met Remy, our super knowledgeable and funny guide. He made us feel like we were a couple of college friends walking around the city and sharing the knowledge about its history and main tourism‘s points. Had a really good time and would suggest you try it out too, if you have some spare time. Totally worth it! 🙂

Don’t miss the walking tour with Remy. He really knows his stuff and made the walked very interesting and fun!
You will end the tour with a solid general knowledge of the city to brag about and funny facts as well.
Strasbourg is a beautiful city and it very much worth it to take this 2 hour walk to see the main points.
Enjoy!

The half-timbered style

The half-timbered style

Let’s talk a little about Alsatian houses, the half-timbered houses (maisons à colombage) also referred to in French as the houses with timber frame panels or studwork. This “colombage” allows us to add this monument to the five “C’s” of Alsace.. which, of course, work better in French : cathédrale (easy enough), choucroute (=sauerkraut), cigogne (=stork), coiffe (=headdress) and colombage (=half-timbering).

The Battle of Hausbergen, an important event in the history of Strasbourg. And what better time than March 8th to do a little historical reminder? Yes, because it was on March 8th of the year 1262 that took place this battle which was to change the fate of Strasbourg.

Valentine’s Day in all its forms

That is an horrible stiry that of Valentine’s Day, because even if the origins of this holiday are far from being perfectly clear, its various origins, more or less admitted, are far from romantic. Are you ready ? 😉

January 2021’s news

Just like last year, we waited until January 31st to give you some news about the coming year… Well, this year we have an excuse, in these tormented times it is difficult to know what the future holds for all of us, and on our side the answer to “When will we be able to offer you our Free Tours again” remains completely unclear…
