Located in the Alsace region in France, Strasbourg has a unique cultural mix that comes with being a border town. It only takes 15 minutes to drive to the neighbouring country, so naturally, you can see some direct influences. German Flammkuchen appears on the menu at nearly every restaurant, but it is just as easy to order from the huge variety of French pastries at a local patisserie. French language sings in the air, though it is not uncommon to hear German too! Strasbourg has an endless supply of charming streets, half-timbered houses and pretty canals, waiting to be explored.

This grand gothic cathedral towers above the town square and is the sixth tallest church in the world. It is remarkably impressive from the outside, especially during the golden hour. Make sure you take a peek inside too!
