What a grand city for Christmas Time. Although we have been to Strasbourg in the summer as well. I have to say that the Christmas Market "Capital de Noel" is a fine and grand place. It leaves nothing to the imagination. 9 distinctive and active markets spread through out Petite France. Petite France is the island city of old Strasbourg. It is delightful any time of year but during Christmas Time Strasbourg becomes "Magical;" Throughout the old city its vendors and shops are enough to try the most determined shopper. Plan to spend a considerable amount of time to enjoy the entire experience and relish it. Don't forget to be prepared to walk and wear comfortable shoes. It could very well be an all day and evening experience.

Several very nice and comfortable boutique hotels are in the area. Special events occur throughout the day with music, and accompanied by every type of food and drink imaginable. Strasbourg is well worth a 2 day visit so you can enjoy the stay and not feel rushed.

It is easily accessible and lies in southeastern France and south western Germany Alsace Region. The Alsace Region has flipped between Germany and France over the years and has many families of both decent with combinations of French and German names and lineage. The culture, language and cuisine are all nicely reflected, including signage,cuisine and a unique blend of both cultures. Schools teach and test students in French, German and English.Strasbourg is a true multi cultural city.

Originally, my husband was not very keen on visiting Strasboug. Once we got there, he really loved it and found it a very lively city. The 3 days in August were full of life, from morning to night, with a 1.5km of choices of very good restaurants, bars, cafes and shops.

The Strasbourg City Center district is the historic and geographic heart of the city of Strasbourg, who is located on the Big Island, and is the richest city in Alsace. The city center is part of the UNESCO world heritage.In addition, the city's museums are particularly rich and interesting. Strasbourg is obviously essential not only for its monuments, but also for capturing the different faces of Alsace and Alsatians. Take your time to walk around until the smalles corner of the island, you will not regret your visit.

In Strasbourg you have 3 different areas to visit. The first one is the area around the cathedral (Notre Dame de Strasbourg) with the beautiful squares (Place de la Cathedrale, Place Kleber, Place Gutenberg, Place Broglie, Place de la Republique etc) and buildings (Maison Kammerzell, Palais Rohan). The second and the most beautiful in my opinion is Petite France with its specific alsacian arhitecture. Here you can enjoy, besides the beautiful scenery, a great traditional meal or a boat ride. From here you can get to the next area, the third one, by boat (Batorama). This third area is the much modern one with all the European institutions (Parlement Europeen, La Cour des droits de l'Homme, Le Conseil de l'Europe). It worths to be mentioned also Le Parc de l'Orangerie (just across the Council of Europe) and Le Parc de la Citadelle. In Alsace you should eat "tarte flambee" and "choucroute".

Strasbourg is a beautiful city, most notably for its cathedral, historic buildings, and bridges over the canal. Plan to visit and note:

1. Car use is limited in the city centre. If driving, you will need to find a lot or street parking on the perimeter.
2. They do have streetcar and bus transportation, though once you are in the centre of the city, walking is easy.
3. Cathedral admission is free. During the evening, they have a light show on the side of the building. Check with your hotel or the cathedral for times and dates.
4. There are lots of great sidewalk cafes, bakeries, and specialty food shops.
5. Many high end retailers (Hermes, Louis Vouitton) are here, as well as high end department store Galleries Lafayette.
6. This is a great area to spend a day. If you only have a few hours, you should definitely visit the cathedral and check out a few shops and grab a meal nearby.

Beautiful and historic with a majestic Cathedral surrounded by lots of cafes, restaurants and shops. Being almost at the German border, it has quite a strong German influence. The small alleys are particularly enchanting. One can spend hours and hours there.

Mixed feeling you get stolling around the narrow streets boarding the canals... Half timbered houses reflects into the water offering a really nice picture of this place.
Tourist friendly city, enjoy wandering around and make sure you don't miss the cathedral and the watch!

I was surprised by the beauty of Strasbourg city center. All the buildings are nicely renovated, and the Cathedral surely deserves a long visit. Also walking along the river, especially close to the "Petit France", is nice and relaxing.

Seriously, if you don't check out the region around the center of town, why the heck did you come to Strasbourg? This is a wonderful, quaint little area that wonderful summer, spring, and winter (I've never been in fall).

There is, of course, the cathedral. But there are also a ton of little open-air restaurants in the large staggered squares featuring the half-timbered architecture the area is famous for. Most of the area is for pedestrian traffic and the streets are clean, though if you've got mobility issues, be aware that most of the region is squared-off cobblestones.

Unless you dislike history and culture (and food/drink!), you'll miss out on an important aspect of a visit to Strasbourg!
