The last few days I was able to spend some time in the beautiful city of Strasbourg. Almost 4 years ago, I moved to Strasbourg and lived there for a year. This city has a special place in my heart, despite me constantly saying that I’ll never visit again, I find myself always missing it and itching to go back.
Strasbourg is a city in the East of France, less than 5 minutes drive from Germany. With German supermarkets being cheaper, we used to take the bus to Germany to do our grocery shopping before returning to France. It was the best of both worlds.
With Strasbourg once belonging to Germany, it has a lot of Germanic architecture (as well as French) which adds to the beauty of the city.
Walking around the city is an absolute delight because you’re met with beauty wherever you look.
The best part about Strasbourg is the easy transport routes. Whether that’s bus or tram or walking, the city is very accessible and easy to navigate.
There is also the canal that runs through the city. I remember my first week in Strasbourg after I moved there, we all met up at the canal with baguettes and bottles of wine and drank through the night. It was the best way to start off in a new place and it became a habit. Every time I walk by the canal I always remember that first week.
Look how beautiful it is!!! Absolutely stunning! I already miss it.
This is Strasbourg’s very own Notre Dame Cathedral. It is over 1,000 years old and you can climb all the way to the top. It is such a beautiful site, situated in the centre of the city.
This is Place Kleber, my favourite place in Strasbourg, (mainly because it’s the only place with a Starbucks). Last weekend there was the fête de la musique (festival of musique). This meant that on every corner in the city centre there was a band with loud speakers playing. And there was a stage in Place Kleber being set up when I took this picture.
Strasbourg is a beautiful city that I would recommend to everyone. It is known as the Capital of Christmas, which makes visiting around Christmas time the most magical experience.
Thank you for reading.
