Episode 18 Strasbourg


StrasbourgStrasbourg the Beautiful

In this episode of the Join Us in France Travel Podcast, Elyse takes us to the gorgeous region of Alsace (where she used to live) and more specifically to the city of Strasbourg.

Annie also has strong feelings about Strasbourg because she just visited. She can’t say enough good things about the gorgeous Cathedral, the gastronomy, the wine, and how generally pleasant the city is. This area is full of history and we give you an overview going all the way back to Charlemagne. We also discuss the fact that control of the area kept going back and forth between France and Germany, and how that makes for an interesting culture.

Today what strikes visitors is that the city is deeply rooted in European values and extremely welcoming. You’re going to love it!
