Have you ever heard about Strasbourg? It is a city located in Alsace, France. It's pretty close to German so you can see a lot of German influences throughout the city. Not to mention, a stunning Cathedral in the middle of the city who successfully steal the attention of both tourists and locals.
We So I visited Strasbourg for 4 days (3 nights). I booked the ticket & hotel quite late because at that time we didn't know when my partner would have his day offs. So it was in Spring 2018 and I found an aparthotel near the city center. We stayed in City Residence Strasbourg Center, on booking.com and you can have 15€ discount if you use this code.
We arrived in the morning with a TGV (French fastest train), really early, I could say. And it was rainy. Just one quick note for everyone, rainy morning in Strasbourg means (at least for me) doing nothing for hours. Strasbourg is a beautiful city where most places are reachable by walking. We spent around 3 hours and a half just finishing our coffee and eating croissant in Café Broglié. Just an honest review, it was nothing special. Just a place we've found directly when we got off from the tram.
