Château de Pourtalès - A Fairytale Castle

Why live in the dorms next semester when you could live in this castle?

This beautiful castle is nestled gracefully in a lush and peaceful park-like setting just minutes from the center of one of Europe’s most dynamic and multi-cultural cities, Strasbourg, France.

The Château de Pourtalès has witnessed nearly 300 of the most compelling years in the history of Western Europe and graciously welcomed some of Europe's most notable nobility, diplomats, dignitaries, musicians, philosophers and poets.

Today, the Château continues to offer its hospitality to guests from all over the world. Groups studying abroad, policy-makers from many world governments, business leaders, as well as couples and families traveling in Europe enjoy our quiet setting just minutes away from the bustling center of Strasbourg. Public transportation and our many miles of immaculately-maintained bike paths make accessing all the area has to offer exceedingly easy.
