The Venue

Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace, is situated in the region Grand Est alongside the romantic Rhine river on the French-German border. It is a historic, international and academic city, and boasts an eclectic mix of old and new: its historic city center (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) overlooked by the Notre-Dame-de-Strasbourg cathedral is contrasted by the modern seat of the European Parliament.
