First stop on our Rhine Cruise was Strasbourg France with flavors of both France and Germany. This beautiful city sits right on the border and has been part of both countries several times. Our cruise included a glass top boat tour of the "la Petite" neighborhood which looks almost like a fairy tale with its timbered houses.
The ochre cathedral with it's reddish glow dominates the busy town square. Strasbourg, both cosmopolitan and old world, plays host to the European Parliament and has Europe's oldest Christmas Market. It will go on my list of a place I would like to return to.
