Strasbourg through the seasons: la Maison des Ponts Couverts

La Maison des Ponts Couverts is located on an islet off the Ponts Couverts, in the historic old neighborhood of la Petite France in Strasbourg. It is overlooked by two fortified 14th-century towers, vestiges of the medieval city walls.

In the spring, the view of the house’s arbor covered in blossoming wisteria, with Strasbourg Cathedral in the background, attracts (too?) many Instagrammers and tourists.

La Maison des Ponts Couverts, which has been owned by the City of Strasbourg since 1960, is now a visitation center for families in situations of custody conflict.

With each changing season, Strasbourg reveals a new side of itself, a particular charm and unique atmosphere.

While exploring Strasbourg, we strive to capture the city in every light and shade the seasons offer us throughout the year.

After the muted shades of winter, nature awakens once more. Then the warmth of summer will follow, before giving way to blazing autumnal colors.

What wonderful photographs of such a beautiful place. I love the pink bicycle too. If I could own a bike, that’s what I’d have. Thanks for sharing. I’ll try to take a look at some more of your photos on your blog when I can. Ellie x 🙂
