Strasbourg is a city in Alsace, a region in eastern France near the border with the Baden region of Germany. The city is the capital of the Bas-Rhin department

The Roman general Drusus founded Strasbourg in 12 BC. as a military outpost called Argentoratum in the later province of Germania superior. Under Trajan and after the fire in 97, Argentoratum had reached its greatest extent and strongest fortifications

Strasbourg's well-preserved historic old town Grande Île, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988, is surrounded by the Ill, a tributary of the Rhine. The Cathédrale Notre-Dame (Strasbourg Cathedral) is the city's landmark, built between 1176 and 1439 in the Romanesque and Gothic styles.

The former tanners' quarter (Quartier des Tanneurs) in the La Petite France district on the banks of the Ill and several of its canals with its picturesque half-timbered houses, small streets and typical dormers is very popular with tourists. The former use of the tanneries, which have now been converted into apartments, can still be recognized today by their typical roof trusses, for example at 12 Rue des Dentelles.
