Palais Rohan is one of the most important medieval buildings in Strasbourg. A great example of the impressive baroque architectural style, the building is home to three of the most important museums of the city. Designed to resemble a Parisian mansion, the Palais Rohan was built between 1732 and 1742 and was done to the plans of Robert de Cotte, the King’s main architect. Considered to be one of the finest architectural creations of the 18th century, the Palais draws in numerous tourists visiting the city. The magnificent interior of the building has remained the same and is admired and appreciated by many. Aside from these fascinating rooms, the museums housed in the building feature a range of exhibits. The Archeological Museum, the Fine Arts Museum and the Museum of Decorative Arts, all housed under one roof, provide visitors an array of interesting displays.
Rates tend to vary, as entry into each museum is with a separate ticket.
