Our Philosophy

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


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.


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. Anne, Gabriel, Gustave, Leo, Matthias, Remy, Thomas and Viviane were raised in Alsace, fed by alsatian food, immersed in local culture since childhood, we are ambassadors of our region.


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!



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.



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.


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.


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.

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).
