Hailed as one of the most important buildings within the city of Strasbourg in Alsace France, Palais de Rohan stands as a monument to local baroque architecture. Over the course of its history, it has housed three of the most important museums located within the city limits: the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Decorative Arts, and the Museum of Fine Arts. The Galerie Robert Heitz, a city gallery, is located within a side wing of the palace. Originally commissioned by Cardinal Aarmand Gaston Maximilen de Rohan, Bishop of Strasbourg, palace architect Joseph Massol erected the castle between 1731 and 1742. Come walk the same halls Napoléon Bonaparte strolled back in 1805, 1806, and 1809. The castle itself has seen its fair share of tragedies, including a fire in 1870, and later, English and American bombs during the 1940s. The sprawling architectural masterpiece was restored in the 1990s and opened its doors to an adoring public.

Especially if you get the Strasbourg pass, make sure you visit this palace. Inside and out it is beautiful.

This grand, elegant building houses three museums - the fine art and archaeology museums are both very interesting, the decorative arts museum less so. Signage at the entrance isn't great - push on the doors and hope for the best!
