Bon jour Strasbourg; City of (pretty) Lights!

Bon jour and festive greetings to you all from Strasbourg, France!

Strasbourg is a beautiful town, and indeed very festive at this time of the year; the city is decorated beautifully with very pretty decorations. Almost every shop has a decoration of its own, so lovely to look at.

This cafe has a “bonbon candy, presents” theme with their decoration, you feeling like reaching out to try one!

The Crocodile Restaurant, of course had a great big crocodie hanging amongst the pretty decorations:)

The main square and la petit France, where wonderful Christmas markets are tastefully decorated in every corner. Here is “Office de Tourisme”, decorated with gingerman, so tempting to have a little bite!

Each pattiserie and bakery is so inviting with smells of cinnamon, chocolate and many more and buzzing every time of the day 🙂

Each stall at the Christmas market reflects Strasbourg’s heritage and closeness to France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

But best bit for my children has been the Merry-go-round in the middle of the market, such fun and happiness it brings, whatever the age!

Wishing you all a happy, fun filled festive season, look forward to sharing many more delicious bites in the New Year!
