Have you ever been to Strasbourg around Christmas time? If not, you should. It is one of the cutest and most festive place to be at this time of the year. The whole town is sumptuously decorated. Santa Claus, Polar Bears, Elves all dance together around shop windows, Christmas markets are set up a bit everywhere, the Cathedral is illuminated at night and the wonderful perfume of mulled wine regns over the whole city… a magical experience!
Travel Tip: The thing to try at the Christmas market is a “Tarte Flambee Baguette” (a sort of Alsacienne pizza on a baguette). After the Christmas market, head to Christian, the most wonderful patisserie and chocolate house of the city and try out one of their hot chocolate.. and go straight to heaven.
