One of the main sights when staying at Campanile Strasbourg Ouest hotel is the Notre-Dame de Strasbourg Cathedral. Essentially, this is an immense but intricate building with the spire standing at 142 metres and stained windows creating sheer beauty within. This is considered a ‘gothic masterpiece' and can be visited all year long. Organic fair, ‘Bio& Co Fair' is held in late October and attracts 250 exhibitors from around France and overseas. On show are displays from the contributors including food, cooking, crafts and furniture and healthy homes and renewable energy. This four day event can be found at the Strasbourg Wacken Exhibition centre. With Summer nights in Strasbourg ever-distinguished, L'Ill aux Lumieres harnesses this very thought to illuminate the already stunning sites of the city centre.
