No other city combines its French and German heritage in such a perfect way as Strasbourg, the lively capital of the Alsace region. Colourful timber-framed houses and Imperial mansions of bygone times as well as a maze of streams and canals dominate Strasbourg’s cityscape. The city is packed with charm: rickety old houses around Petite France are utterly enchanting, like something from a fairy tale, while the canals that criss-cross the city give Strasbourg a little hint of Venice
Historians will enjoy its impressive Cathedral, for centuries the tallest edifice of the universe. Your DD private guide will explain to you the inner of its wondrous astronomical clock – a mechanical masterpiece!
Strasbourg is also home to the European Parliament and its de-facto capital. Everyone should visit one of the world’s most wonderful Christmas markets there at least once in their lifetime.
