The perfect mix…. Franco-German!
Few cities in Europe manage to embody two cultures and two so different traditions in a unique and skilful way. Strasbourg is a city with a unique flavor, ideal for a simple “hit and run” or as an intermediate stop for Paris, Munich or Brussels.
Splendid neighborhoods, squares and medieval alleys. The beautiful, Gothic, Notre Dame Cathedral. The picturesque and charming district of Petit France. Palais de Rohan and much more. And, if this is not enough for you, try to discover the magic of the Christmas atmosphere. It is no coincidence that, since 1570, it hosts the famous “Christkindelsmärik”, that is, the oldest Christmas market in all of France!
