A whirlwind visit to Strasbourg

In November 2017 I had the amazing opportunity to visit Strasbourg while on a week long trip to see one of my best friends in France.

It was quite a spontaneous visit so we didn’t really do much research into where to go/what to see and in a lot of ways I really enjoyed travelling with no plans except to wander the beautiful cobbled streets in the cold.

The gothic Cathedral towers above the city almost cradling the small shops and restaurants sitting around it.

Strasbourg is so much more than I had expected. The medieval architecture of days gone by still remains in almost pristine condition despite a rich and turbulent history.

We discovered quiet paths, ambled along by the river Ill, explored the Cathedral both outside and inside (you must go inside if you visit), we ate amazing food and felt humbled by friendly people everywhere. We even squeezed in the Musée alsacien which I recommend if you want to dive into the history of the Alsace region.

Strasbourg, I’ll be back.
