When History meets Hospitality…
This 17th century former mill used to house the Glacières de Strasbourg, where blocks of ice were produced for shops, breweries and private households all over the region. Production fell as refrigerators became commonplace and finally ended in 1989. That was when Mr Jean-Maurice Scharf, the current owner, acquired the buildings and converted them. The RÉGENT PETITE FRANCE Hotel & Spa opened on 1 May 1992 to offer guests an outstanding experience in a setting that perfectly combines history and modernity.
VISIT the glacières
The “Glacières” are a unique place in Europe.
What is so special here is that the gigantic cast-iron wheels and their enormous transmissions still stand just where they took up work over hundred years ago.
Today you can book a visit to see the old ice-making machinery that has been preserved within the hotel during the European Heritage Days.
In the heart of
LA PETITE FRANCE
This is the most picturesque part of Strasbourg. Fishermen, millers and tanners once lived and worked in this neighbourhood built on the water.
The magnificent half-timbered houses date from the 16th and 17th centuries. Their sloping roofs open onto attics where skins used to be dried.
