Roses

Standard

Orangerie Park in Strasbourg is home to many wonderful plants and flowers. Its greenhouses supply flowers for the entire city of Strasbourg. My kid told me about it. Her class had a day trip at Orangerie, organised by her wonderful teacher. 

The roses round is one of my favourite places in Orangerie. It’s a meditation spot with generous colours, perfumes and tactile experiences. The roses petals velvety touch is a wonderful feeling for fingers otherwise in contact with key boards and touch-screens. 

You can hear roses play. Why else would they give them names of composers: Chopin or Tchaikovski. You get to walk among royalty: Sissi, Josephine, Prince de Monaco, Princess of Walles and laugh with Louis de Funes. Enjoy them all!

Visiting Cyprus in Strasbourg

Standard

For a month in May, one can discover Cyprus in Strasbourg. Co-organised by the Council of Europe Staff Association and the Cyprus Office of Tourism, the visit is a fun journey through the streets of Strasbourg delivered in a 2-in-1 format: you get to discover the architectural heritage of Strasbourg and the culture of Cyprus.

You can make it either with a guided group lead by 2 lovely  students from Cyprus studying in Strasbourg or at your own pace, with a smartphone. The  journey includes 14 photographs presented on panels in the windows of shops partners on a route from Central Railway Station to Place Kléber, through the most important sites and monuments of Strasbourg. To go from one stage to another of the exhibition, you just download the QR codes on the panels and follow the guide. It offers to citizens of Strasbourg and the visitors of the city a free itinerary, accessible 7/7.

Thanks, Cyprus Office of Tourism, we enjoyed it very much!
