A Walk in the Orangery Garden

In the northeast of Strasbourg is the “Jardin de L’Orangerie,” which makes for a pleasant afternoon stroll. During the French Revolution in the 18th century, Strasbourg inherited orange trees confiscated from the nobility. The park was later remodeled as an English garden, and the Pavilion of Josephine was constructed in the name of the first wife of Napoleon and the first Empress of France. The park also contains a zoo and a special preservation area for the white stork, the symbol of Alsace.
