STRASBOURG - FRANCE

Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace region in eastern France and lies on the border with Germany, giving it a unique flavour of both countries. The historic center of Strasbourg, structured around its iconic Cathedral, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Its architecture is inspired by the Haussmanian model, and mixes the best of the Germanic and French styles. Overall, the whole center is very well preserved, with a material condition close to the original state.

Christmas is one of the best times of the year to visit Strasbourg. The Christmas Market, renowned internationally, is a beautiful and typical market where you can find traditional Alsatian symbols, like hot wine, “bredele” cookies and many great decoration.
