there are several beautiful museums in Strasbourg. I just want to recomend the museum of Notre Dame, the exhibition is great and the buildings were it is located are amazing, they are from the 14th and 16th century. The museum documents the
evolution of the arts between the 11th and the 17th centuries in Strasbourg
and the Upper Rhine region
Christkindelsmärik in Place Broglie 1
Photo 1 and 2 show the main alley of Christkindelsmärik in Place Broglie, the most important Marché de Noël in Strasbourg. These photos were taken on Saturday 9th December around 11:30. It was already difficult to walk because of the crowd. There will be even more visitors in the afternoon, and even more on Sunday and even more when getting closer to Christmas! If you enjoy the crowd, you will know when to come. If you don't, you also know!
Place de la Republique
Situated in the middle of the Place de la Republique's square , the WW (1 & 2) memorial is dedicated to ALL who died.
Mother Alsace holds her dead sons : one of them looks at France, the other one at Germany.
During the last world wars, young Alsacians were enrolled in the German troups against their will, they were called "les malgre nous" and had to fight against their brothers .
Most of them were sent to the Russian front and died there or were made prisonner, some of them came back from Russia only in the late SEVENTIES.
Beside this, the monument has a signification that i completely encompass : the idea of the irrelevance of citizenship in front of death, loss and sorrow.
Situated at the crossroads of major international railways, Strasbourg's train station is constantly bustling with travelers and commerce from all over Europe. Quick and comfortable trains such as the Trans-Europ-Express (TEE) and the InterCity (IC) connect Strasbourg to major european cities like Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Vienna, Rome, Frankfurt, Luxembourg, Brussels, Amsterdam, Basel, Calais and London.
The Strasbourg railroad corridor will be improved in the years to come by the Strasbourg-Paris TGV which will continue into Germany towards Karlsruhe, Stuttgart and Munich with the InterCityExpress (ICE), joining together two European families of high-speed trains.
If you have enough of the very...
If you have enough of the very beautiful, but also very touristy old town restaurants with all their 'choucroute folklore' try 'Café Brant' next to the university, a typically Parisian café named after the author of the 'Narrenschiff' ('Ship of Fools').
They serve really good salads and draught beer.
