The Château de Pourtalès is situated in the Strasbourg suburb of Robertsau, which is only 6 km (1.8 miles) from the town center of Strasbourg. Due to Strasbourg's central location in Europe, located on the Rhine River, it serves as a link between France and Germany and therefore holds an important status. Strasbourg was therefore chosen as the seat of 16 European institutions, for example the European Parliament, Council of Europe and the European Court of Justice for Human Rights.
Strasbourg is an important major city in Europe, not only because of its vital position in modern Europe but also due to its unique charm which the town has attained over the years.
