What do I need to know about living in Strasbourg?

Live in Strasbourg? Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Strasbourg, they said:

"I would be brutally honest and say it's not a place for a young person and is more suited to someone with a family...but if you're a student or stagiere, then you're sorted," said another expat in Strasbourg.

How do I meet people in Strasbourg?

Live in Strasbourg? Answer this Question

When we asked people living in Strasbourg about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"Even after being here for 21 months, I am still finding it hard to meet people. The students only seem to mix with students and people seem very clicky and not willing to let you into their established 'group'. Have joined a gym and am a member of the English Speaking Community, but they hold events during work hours, which is a bit of a dead end for me," added another person living in Strasbourg.

Will I be able to find a job in Strasbourg?

When we asked people about industries and career opportunities in Strasbourg, they reponded:

"Due to the nature of my work, it seems mainly as though the Court of Human Rights, Council of Europe and European Parliament are the main career paths. It's difficult to find work if you don't have the French/German language skills, but there is (limited) work around," added another person living in Strasbourg.

What is life like in Strasbourg?
