Join me on a walking tour of Strasbourg! We’ll talk about its origins as a Roman camp, the moments of glory as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Germanic Empire, its millenary cathedral, Strasbourg and the events of the French Revolution and how the Marseillaise was written down in this city (yeah, weird, right?) and we will visit the canals of the Petite France. But I want to offer you something else (and that no one else will), as a lover of History, I’m passionate concerning stories of WW2, so we will have a conversation regarding Strasbourg during its darker years, from its bombing in 1870 by the Prussian troops, the return into France after the First World War and the life of the town throughout the Second World War. We will talk about the Nazi occupation of Strasbourg, from the life experiences of Anne-Marie, my girlfriend's grandmother, (she is still alive and happy that I'm sharing her life with you!) and share with you some of her family photos and letters!
We will walk by places that saw their original names changed, like the old Adolf Hitler Platz, the Karl Roos Platz, we will walk outside the former Kommandantur and all that while I tell you about the American bombardments that the city suffered allowing the entrance of the allied forces.
By the way! This experience is dog friendly and feel free to ask if the time proposed for a tour doesn't fit your schedule

I come from Chile, a former law student, former tourist guide in Chile and backpacker who travelled from Ecuador to the Strait of Magellan (passing multiple times through Patagonia)

In 2016 I travelled 13,000 km to improve my language skills doing a degree in Modern Languages at Université de Strasbourg. In this moment Im finishing a new degree at Université de Strasbourg to become an Official Tourist Guide in France (Guide Conférencier)

Passionate about history and World War II, I arrived to Strasbourg, falling in love with it and now hoping to share that love for Strasbourg with you.

For your safety (and mine) I already have my 2 Pfizer doses and a First Aid diploma issued by the French Civil Protection and recognised by the French Ministry of the Interior (PSC 1).

Yes! Absolutely book this tour! If you can, book it private (but if not, I am sure the group tour, is just as good)! Vladimir is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about sharing his knowledge. Not only at a text book fact level but also at a personal level of family stories and experiences. He does not just focus on the wars but also on the people of the area. Who they are, where they come from and how they became the people they are today. I feel so much more informed on Strasbourg, than I even could have though I would learn. If you love history and culture and most importantly learning about where you are visiting, BOOK THIS TOUR!

Vladimir is really passionate about history and Alsace. Really interesting the idea of using personal data in order to better convey the experiences of a war. A really good experience for those who like history.

Excellent tour and history of Strasbourg. Vladimir was exceptionally patient with our 2 children and allowed us to visit the city and it's history through a different set of eyes. Highly recommend!
