I invite you to discover the Neustadt (new city); also called the German district is a district in the center of Strasbourg, located at the east of the old town.
This is the planned extension by the city and the German authorities after the annexation of Strasbourg in 1871.
This area is often regarded as the best preserved evidence of the Imperial German architecture, thanks to its large size and its exceptional homogeneity that does not exist anymore (or a little) in Germany, due to the bombing of the 2nd World War, which destroyed the majority of the German city centers.
The Strasbourg “Neustadt” is characterized by the presence of neo style (neo-Renaissance, neo-Gothic, neo-classical) and the “Art Nouveau” style, called Jugendstil.
