Thank you!

Hi Jenny,
Many French citizens consider Strasbourg the best place in their country to find fine cuisine. Strasbourg is famous for a restaurant institution called the "Winstub", a word which is derived from nearby German. It compares roughly with the German term "Wein Stube" [wine tavern]. There are many Winstubs in Strasbourg. You can get a handle on some of them by getting on your screen and typing into the search box: Winstub, Strasbourg, France. We recommend you arrange to have at least one meal in a Strasbourg Winstub. Bon Voyage / Gute Reise! P.

It doesn't hurt that you will be there during the Christmas Market! You may find yourself spending most of the day wandering through that. I highly recommend one of the boat tours and eating there. I especially like Restaurant Au Pont St. Martin. The Bishops Palace is great for a museum visit and of course, the Cathedral with its clock.

Jenny -

Strasbourg has one of the most famous Christmas markets in Europe. I recommend part of the day their sipping hot wine.
