Strasbourg is a charming European Union capital city with Germanic and French influence. We originally did not plan on visiting Strasbourg, but we are glad we made the last minute decision to go! We started our day off in Strasbourg by grabbing a coffee and croissant at La Croustille on Place Saint Etienne Steffesplan.After our breakfast, we walked around the main square; saw the Cathédrale Notre Dame and headed to The Petite France “little France” quarter. We of course stopped for some pretzels! Petite France was our favorite part of visiting Strasbourg. It is one of the most picturesque parts of the city; the perfect blend of Germanic and French architecture. After walking around, we decided to see the city by boat. We bought tickets from the Ticket Office found in the same square as the Cathédrale Notre Dame. Tickets for the Batorama run for about 13 Euros and they can also be purchased online. We took the tour “Grande Ile” (the island that lies at the historic center of the city). Did you know that Strasbourg and specifically Grande Ile is on the UNESCO World Heritage List?After our batorama ride, we decided to climb to the top of Cathédrale Notre Dame and see a birds-eye view of the city. To enter the cathedral and climb to the top, we paid about 5 Euros each.
Hope you enjoyed our take on Strasbourg. See you on the next post!
