April 2022 Strasbourg, France

Strasbourg walks the line between an old village and a thriving city. The old town has great winding streets, but is rather large and was surprisingly easy for me to get turned around in, even with the big canal encircling it: LOL. But there are also newer style trams cutting through, and quite a bit of shopping, which give it more of a city feel in some parts; a contrast that seems a bit strange to me, when I think about it, but works.

I didn’t have very good weather during my stay in April, but still had a great time exploring. A local told me June is a great time of year to visit for nice weather, but I’ve also heard they have one of the best Christmas Markets in Europe, so you have some options depending on the time of year you can visit. I think it’s a place worth visiting no matter the time of year, just come prepared for varied conditions.

Feedback is appreciated... let me know what you're liking, or not to help me keep improving the experience.
