Just two hours from Paris, the capital of the Alsace region acts as a European crossroads.

This cosmopolitan city hosts three major international institutions: the European Parliament, the Palace of Human Rights and the Council of Europe

But here you'll find also three main museums : the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Decorative Arts and the Archeological Museum.

Explore the historic quarter, an area known as Petit France in Strasbourg Since 1570, this area has been the site of the famous annual Strasbourg Christmas Market.. The medieval town is dotted with original half-timbered houses, and you can feast your eyes on its quaint watch towers, mills and the covered bridges which lead to the Barrage Vauban.

Strasbourg is of course famous for its fine food.. Alsacian specialities include sauerkraut with knacke, pretzels, baeckoffe (meat and potatoes simmered in white wine), flammekueche (flambéed onion tart), kougelhopf (sweet or savoury brioche cake) and Munster cheese. Don't forget to taste the renowned Alsace wines, mainly white, you'll find both fruity and dry wines (Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Pinot blanc, Tokay Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sylvaner) and of course the beer: Kronenbourg is the most common, as it is made in the area. In July you can taste all sorts of local specialities at Food Culture, Festival of Cultures and Flavours of Europe.

The city of Strasbourg is a delicious treat which is to be savoured slowly…
