Matthias grew up in Hunchbacked Alsace, and came down from his hills to settle in Strasbourg for his studies, as many do. But Matthias is an eternal stroller, he contemplates, admires, and sometimes interprets; he takes his time and sees what many are missing.
He is always as charmed as charming, who better than this stroller to take you around the city?
He will have great pleasure to tell you about his beautiful city that he does not stop to walk and admire all day long.

This Strasbourg guy at heart will share with joy and passion: tell the world he travels, the world around, us and especially his love for Strasbourg.
So don’t hesitate anymore and follow the guide!

He did not hesitate for a moment to join this Happy team of passionates/enthusiasts when came the opportunity to join Happy Strasbourg and share his beloved city with interested people.

Even better : he loves to talk and to do the show! So don’t hesitate to follow him on a visit under the sign of humor and love of beautiful things.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

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

R

100% local guaranteed !

Because who could introduce you 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. Gabriel, Gilles, Gustave, Leo and Matthias were raised in Alsace, fed by alsatian food, immersed in local culture since childhood, we are ambassadors of our region.

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

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 tour, and try to answer every possible question, adapting ourselves to your interests and knowledges.

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

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 do 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

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.
