What to do in Strasbourg

by hokiechick

I will be traveling to Strasbourg, France the first week of December. Other than the points of interest within the city, what are some great places and sites to see outside of the town limits (within a few minutes to 2 hours). anything interesting on the germany or switzerland borders? What weather can I expect that time of year for packing purposes. Anything to see around the Paris airport that I can checkout while waiting for my 3 hour layover? (within walking distance?) I also do not speak a bit of French or German or any other language for that matter...how big of a problem is that going to be?

>>how big of a problem is that going to be?<< don`t expect everybody to speak your language, so please be so polite to ask first : "Do you speak English?"
>>points of interest within a few minutes to 2 hours<< take a walk along the river Rhine at the German border (city Kehl), beautiful park landscape.>>anything interesting on the germany or switzerland borders<< Visit Colmar, the lake Constance (cities Konstanz (Germany), Bregenz (Austria) St. Gallen (Switzerland))

RE: What to do in Strasbourg

All the towns on the Alsace Wine Route are close to Strasbourg. That might be fun if weather permits. Cute places to visit are Obernai, Selestat, Barr, Ribeauville, Mont Ste. Odile on top of a mountain with a view of the Rhine (weather permitting), the castle Haut-Koenigsbourg with more incredible views (weather permitting). There are lots of wine villages, all lovely and that's just in France!

In Strasbourg there is the Orangerie, a huge park near the river. They have a resident stork breeding program there that is very interesting. You hear them clacking as you approach. In December, I don't know if you'll see much though.

the stork breeding program in the Orangerie made the animals so used to be fed, that they don`t fly to Africa no more. Many of them stay through winter.

Travel Tips for Strasbourg

Palais de Rohan

by chancay

This is the Palais de Rohan. It was the bishop's residence. The Rohans were a
very wealthy family who also had a Palais at Saverne. It currently houses the
archeological museum, and music concerts both in the courtyard and inside (it is
very ornate). (INFO THANKS TO CPCMole )

The view around from the church tower was great although the weather was not very good.

We got there by train as it is...

by Sjalen

We got there by train as it is on the main line Brussels-Luxemburg-Basel-Milan so several trains a day stop here. Also trains from Paris of course. It is harder to try to find a train to Germany for historical reasons. The only solution there is to catch a train from Offenburg in the Black Forest.
Space-looking modern trams run in circles around the city centre as a compliment to buses. The centre itself is best seen on foot.

Tourist versus local.....

by Maryimelda about S'Zwilling Steubel

On my second night in Strasbourg, I thought I'd try a restaurant that was off the tourist track, since it is widely believed that these type of restaurants are better. Hence I found a humble looking little place in the backstreets. There was no one in sight when I walked in. A local man came in after me and we called out "hello"! The chef came running out to greet us and whilst he was very pleasant to me, I soon was ignored in favour of the local man. The chef took my order whilst still carrying on a conversation with the local. Then he cut us both a basket of bread, poured us a drink and left to prepare the food. At this time a lady arrived who turned out to be the waitress. She too, totally ignored me as she delivered my food whilst at the same time, having a conversation with the local man. Food was OK but what was termed "Filet Mignon" on the menu was actually a cheap cut of beef which had been cut to look like a Filet but had obviously been casseroled for quite some time to make it tender. I paid my bill and left with the definite impression that in some instances, maybe we are better off eating at the "Tourist" restaurants after all.
