Pausing awhile in Strasbourg

DSCF2434 After Böblingen, we decided to set the controls for another old haunt of Tübingen before eventually heading back towards France. This had the extra benefit of a further chance to meander along the Black Forest High Road which twists and turns its way through a skyline of woodlands before descending towards France.

Our overnight objective was Strasbourg, and to stay in le Petite France, although exceptional navigational skills are required to get into the area around the various traffic restrictions.

Mission accomplished, we joined the throngs of visitors on foot, winding through the Rhineland half-timbered medieval centre of the town, complete with its twists, bridges and canals. Its a real crossroads of cultures that stretch back to Roman times and has its share of violent past across the centuries.

Tomorrow we plan for flammekueche before leaving the area.

Mar Yes and I think we compared notes on Flammkuchen once before!

Pat Luckily we were staying very centrally in le Petite France and could walk out directly into the old quarter. We were actually here about 2 years ago at Christmas, so it was interesting to compare the hot version with the snowy one.
