IS THERE ANYTHING MORE ROMANTIC THAN LOSING YOURSELF IN STRASBOURG?
Its setting in eastern France on the border of Germany, sitting on the banks of the Rhine, the world’s most-travelled river, makes Strasbourg a nucleus of communication, historically from its medieval past, to today, with its status as the capital of the Alsace region. The city is a cosmopolitan centre for university students and curious tourists; and full of fantastic hidden corners, with a spectacular Gothic cathedral and a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, as well as Europe’s oldest Christmas market and the picturesque Petite France quarter with its canals and typical taverns.
