STRASBOURG
Strasburg is the capital and the largest city of the Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine region in eastern France and it’s the official seat of the European Parliament. The city is chiefly known for its sandstone Gothic Cathedral with its famous astronomical clock, and for its medieval cityscape of Rhineland black and white timber-framed buildings, particularly in the Petite France district or Gerberviertel. For a city of comparatively small size, Strasbourg displays a large quantity and variety of ancient houses and a variety of museums. And the food and restaurants are top of the bill.

The cathedrals in this part of France are exceptionally lovely and definitely worth visiting---I cannot remember which of the two in Strasbourg I liked best, but I remember loving them both and it's easy to see a bunch of places, in such a small town.

Magnificent gothic church. In the summer there is a light festival with projections on the tower. Magnificent

If you spend much time in Europe, you can quickly overdose on churches. However, the Strasbourg Cathedral is very unique. It is built in the high gothic style, and is considered a prime example of that style. The highlight of the cathedral is its enormous astronomical clock. The clock is a work of art and scientific ingenuity, following not only time and date, but also leap years, equinoxes and more.

At various times of day, the clock engages and the beautifully carved figures that surround it act out the path from birth to death.

Entry to the cathedral is free, and it really is the highlight of the city.

Strasbourg is at a mere 20 minutes drive. You *must* see its cathedral.
