Palais de Rohan, Strasbourg

4.2
Hailed as one of the most important buildings within the city of Strasbourg in Alsace France, Palais de Rohan stands as a monument to local baroque architecture. Over the course of its history, it has housed three of the most important museums located within the city limits: the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Decorative Arts, and the Museum of Fine Arts. The Galerie Robert Heitz, a city gallery, is located within a side wing of the palace. Originally commissioned by Cardinal Aarmand Gaston Maximilen de Rohan, Bishop of Strasbourg, palace architect Joseph Massol erected the castle between 1731 and 1742. Come walk the same halls Napoléon Bonaparte strolled back in 1805, 1806, and 1809. The castle itself has seen its fair share of tragedies, including a fire in 1870, and later, English and American bombs during the 1940s. The sprawling architectural masterpiece was restored in the 1990s and opened its doors to an adoring public.

  • A beautiful castle in the centre of the city next to the cathedral. Several museums inside: Museum of Decorative Arts, Museum of Fine Arts and Archaeological Museum. The building was built in the middle of the 18th century. Style - classics with baroque elements. It was the house of the bishop, on whose order it was built. The palace was blessed with its presence by King Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette, Napoleon. Interesting views of the palace from the other side of the River Ill.

  • Some beautiful works, but we went there on July 24 thrify, a terrible heat so we could not visit everything. Regrettable strasbourg will have to understand that the city is no longer safe from the harsh heat, so it will have to think, besides there were not many people. So that's what brings an average score

  • This grand, elegant building houses three museums - the fine art and archaeology museums are both very interesting, the decorative arts museum less so. Signage at the entrance isn't great - push on the doors and hope for the best!
