Strasbourg France - "The Capital of Christmas"
There's no better place to be at Christmas time than at the "Capital of Christmas". I've dreamed of visiting the Alsace region of France for a long time, and I'm so happy we decided to go at Christmas time. The streets were magically at night with the decorations and lights. Strasbourg also has one of the largest and best Christmas markets in Europe. We had a wonderful time exploring the small city and checking out all the small booths and Christmas treats. It was magical!
The place our hotel was located was a small fortified town near Colmar. It was built to guard the border between France and the Holy Roman Empire and the German states. Super cool!
