France, Strasbourg Guide (B): Strasbourg – A Perfect French and German Fusion

The off-shoot of this is the confluence of both French and German in culture, food, architecture, for which it was given a UNESCO heritage site status! Beer and wine culture exist side by side, tradition of half-timbered medieval houses co-exist with french mansions along with soaring cathedrals and scenic canals. Strasbourg is not just the congruence of unique cross culture appeal, but it is international, multi-lingual and gastronomic delight, a cosmopolitan hub and home of many European institutions.
