Strasbourg, the Capital of Christmas
I’ve been fascinated by the idea of Strasbourg for a long time. A very German name for a city, but inside the French border. A city that has changed hands between Germany and France more than 5 times. A city that calls itself Capitale de Noel.
I visited in early December and I was not disappointed. It’s a wonderful mix of small French town and German city. Different parts favour different styles. Add to that great food, fantastic Christmas decorations, a gothic cathedral and German-style Christmas markets.
