A Day in Strasbourg - Part II

In part one of my Strasbourg post you saw some pictures of this small but beautiful city and I told you what I would consider a must-see. Now here are some things you should do and should enjoy in Strasbourg:

M U S T - D O :
Yes, look at your city map to see all the places you want to go to...you'll notice, that you will soon check them off your list...and then just start walking around these streets...get lost and get charmed by the places there. I walked several times along the river from Palais Rohan up to the heart of Petite France. It was so peaceful, like a whole week of vacation wrapped in a day. Repeat the same by night-time, the city is particularly attractive by night as well.

Batorama - City Tour by Boat. Also next to the Palais Rohan you find the boats with a curved glass ceiling - perfect for city tours, even on rainy days. Take the long tour, the one for 5 minutes, because this is how you will be sure to visit the Quartier Européen as well.

M U S T - E A T :
  • Tarte flambee or Flammkuchen
  • Choucrute, the Alsatian sauerkraut.
  • Foie gras
  • French breakfast
  • Kougelhopf.
Also try a local beer or a local wine.

If these are not enough reasons to visit Strasbourg,...then I don't know what is! :)
