Nothing special besides good shoes
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: what to bring :
Good shoes .
If you're planning to visit Strasbourg during winter time don't forget to bring a real winter coat.Sometimes it is reallyyyyyyyyy cold there.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: you will find anything you want in strasbourg so if you forgot something, it is pretty easy to find it.
Photo Equipment: Lots and Lots of films if you still have a camera, or two batteries if you have a digital camera; There is a lot of pictures to take there
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We were lucky with the weather but I have been told by colleagues working in the Parliament that it can rain a lot. Supposedly because of the city's position in the flat Rhine valley, squeezed in between the mountain ranges of Vosges and the Black Forest.

'Im Westen nichts neues' of Erich Maria Remarque is a classic anti-war novel which deals with the First World War. It has been translated in many languages, including English (No news from the western front).
