    This clock is located in the Strasbourg Cathedral (Munster), which we visited in August 2021 as part of an included excursion on our Avalon Waterways river cruise. The current astronomical clock was built in 1843 and shares many of the features of its predecessors (dating back to the 14th century) such as an orrery, a rotating display of the current positions of the sun and moon, a planetary calendar, and even a mechanical rooster. We happen to be there at 12:30 pm (the solar noon of Strasbourg) and saw the bird crow and a conga line of apostles issued forth from the clock’s instruments, and passes before Christ. This daily event is very impressive, but can get very crowded. The calculations required to keep the accuracy of the earth and moon in rotation around the sun correctly on the clock is done by a complicated set of cogs on the right hand side of the planetary faceplate. A large celestial globe in front of the planetary clock is also connected to other mechanisms and the stars are in correct position for the day and time of year. A must see if you are visiting Strasbourg,, France.

    This is the main Shopping belt of Strasbourg and also where the X'mas Market was held. There was a small market when I visited. Had an enjoyable short visit.

    We saw this building at night when the whole front was floodlit. It dominates the Place Kleber and is a really beautiful building. The original building dates from 1765-72 and the name L'Aubette means "Orderly Room".

    General Kleber, one of Napoleon's able lieutenants was born in Strasbourg. He took part in French Revolutionary Wars and was part of Napoleon's expedition to Egypt. He met his end there in 1800.

    His remains now rest beneath his statue in Place Kleber, Strasbourg.

    Flowers and candles were left at the base of his statue in memory of the victims of a terrorist attack in December 2018.

    During our Viking River Cruise’ “Rhine Getaway” journey, we visited the historic Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg and charming La Petite France in Strasbourg. On the way back to the cathedral after visiting La Petite France, we came across, near the cathedral square, the statue of a historic figure, Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the mechanical movable type print. Guttenberg, standing on the granite pedestal, was proudly showing his famous Guttenberg Bible. It was an impressive statue.

    This is one of the most poignant and powerful monuments I've every seen. We saw it in the rain, which is not the greatest time to view it. But the message is SO powerful. The mother is holding two children - one representing the fallen in France, the others representing the fallen in Germany. It's an inforgettable plea for peace.

    Strong recommended (and apologies for the pictures taken in the rain).
