Strasbourg – France


Strasbourg sits right on the border of France and Germany and it has flavors of both countries. It’s picturesque “la Petite France” neighborhood looks like something straight out of a fairy tale book, a riverfront neighborhood with timbered buildings accented by colorful flower boxes.

The Cathedrale of Notre Dame suddenly pops up between the small houses. It’s one of Europe’s most beautiful examples of gothic architecture.

In the heart of the Petite France Quarter, the Covered-bridges with their defensive towers offer the visitors a charming view on the river Ill and the Barrage Vauban.
