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.
