Strasbourg is the capital and the main city of the region of Alsace, in the northeast of France.
Strasbourg hosts several European institutions such as the Council of Europe with its
European Court of Human Rights.
Strasbourg's historic centre, the Grande Île
("Grand Island"), was classified
a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1988. Strasbourg is beautifully merged into the
Franco-German culture, and is regarded as the bridge for Germanic and Latin cultures.
Looking forward to seeing you in Strasbourg, from the 8th to the 12th of December 2008.
