Strasbourg, France - My favorite place!

I was more than excited to visit Strasbourg, France on day six  of my cruise. It was nearly 10 years ago when I lived and studied abroad in Strasbourg. The city is filled with history, charm, culture and modern amenities. Strasbourg has been Germany and France many times over the century and because of this has such a unique blend of the two cultures.

The cruise provides a lot free time to explore Strasbourg. You will usually start with a guided small bus tour and then continue walking through the old city with your guide. I won't lie, once I got to the old part of the city I took my band of friends (that I had made throughout the trip) and ditched my guide to explore my city on my own. Make sure to stop in a bakery and get a French baguette and a cafe au lait. No one else in the world can make baguettes like the French and the coffee is oh so delicious. And if you can find the room in your stomach, try some french pastries and make sure to get a Tarte Flambee. Tarte Flambee is an Alsatian specialty you won't want to miss!

The Christmas Markets in Strasbourg are of course wonderful. I liked the change from Germany to France. You will see different kinds and styles of merchandise in the stalls as well as different foods. That is one of the great things about a Rhine River Cruise - you get to experience more than one culture!

It rained throughout the entire day in Strasbourg and even though I was soaked, it was completely worth it. My band of friends and I thouroughly enjoyed the beauty and culture of Strasbourg. Make sure to take your time in the 1200 year old cathedral, visit Le Palais Rohan if you have time (right next to the cathedral) and eat as much food as you possibly can!
