ストラスブール駅Strasbourg

Strasbourg is approximately two hours from Paris by TGV.

Its gateway is the Gare de Strasbourg (Strasbourg railway station).

The domed building has a unique appearance not seen at other stations.

Of course, it is not just its appearance, but also its station, which is the second busiest in France, apart from Paris.

We would like to introduce you to Strasbourg railway station.

Location

Gare de Strasbourg

Address:20 Place de la Gare, 67000 Strasbourg, France

History

1841 Opened as Gare de Koenigshoffen .

However, this station was not in its current location and was a distance from the centre, so construction of a new station soon began.

The old Strasbourg station (Gare du Marais-Vert) opened in 1846.

Its station is used until 1883, after which it is used as a market.

It was then demolished in 1974 and is now a shopping mall called Place des Halles.

In 1883, the current station, Strasbourg, was opened.

The facade was built between 2006 and 2007.

The domed shape is quite presentable from a distance.

Unfortunately, it was raining that morning, so things are a little hazy.

The weather has improved and the station looks spectacular in the setting sun.

This is Place de la Gare in front of the train station.

There is also a CTS (tram) entrance in the centre of the square.

Summary

I have been to many train stations in France and even in Europe, but Strasbourg station looks like no other.

The idea was to cover the original station with a facade, creating an appearance that is not only convenient, but also looks like a spaceship.

The shape is very enjoyable when viewed from a distance, but one regret is that the entire station could not be captured in one photograph.

However, the camera performance of modern smartphones has improved considerably, so next time I visit, I will definitely try to show the whole picture.

Thank you again for reading to the end of this issue.
