Travel to Strasbourg for Photonics Europe

Travel to Strasbourg

Join us in Strasbourg
One of Europe's primary business and event destinations, located at the junction of France's North-South and East-West high-speed rail lines, close to 4 international airports, and on the banks of Europe's main commercial waterway. Strasbourg is home to many European institutions and known for its impressive architecture and museums.

Event Location

Palais de la Musique et des Congrès
(Strasbourg Convention & Exhibition Centre)
Place de Bordeaux, 67082
Strasbourg, France

The convention centre is ideally situated in the heart of the European district, accessible via two direct tram lines from the city centre. Only minutes from Strasbourg's historic centre, the TGV rail station, and less than 5 minutes from 3 tram stations.

Tram passes will be available from MyStrasbourg upon arrival at the event.


Daily shuttles leaving from the TGV rail station and the Hilton hotel (opposite the Convention Centre).
