Taking a Strasbourg taxi to move around

Strasbourg, located literally in the heart of Europe, is a city for which “bustling” would be an understatement. Besides being the headquarters of several European institutions, attracting people from all over the continent, it is also a very vibrant university city with more than 20,000 students and a location full of history, with landmarks and attractions that will leave you in awe.

If your time in the city is limited or you prefer to get around in style and comfort without queuing up for public transportation, a Strasbourg taxi is an excellent option for sightseeing or getting from point A to point B with ease. The prefecture of the Bas-Rhin region regulates taxi prices, which are pretty affordable compared to other European cities. You can pre-book your transfers with a reputable company such as Welcome Pickups for even greater convenience.
