As in Amsterdam, an interesting rainy-day activity in Strasbourg is to take a boat trip around the city. I call it a rainy-day activity because when the weather is nice you will obviously prefer to be out cycling rather than just sitting in a boat.
The boats leave from the Palais Rohan just below the Cathedral. Tickets for the basic 45-minute tour cost € 9.90 for adults (as of 2018), and you get a ticket for a particular boat leaving at a particular time. Mine was called the Blue Cloud (Nuèe Blue) and left at 16:30 in the afternoon.
It hadn’t quite started to rain yet when we went past the back end of the opera house.
Here are some dark clouds gathering over the European Parliament and our tour boat.
