Strasbourg is a relatively small city near to the German border in the Bas-Rhin d�partement of the Alsace region in northeast France. Its ancient centre is a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site. Boasting a magnificent, medieval cathedral and its old heart of intriguing, narrow streets well repay the time spent in exploration. It owes its prosperity in part to geography. Being conveniently close to the mighty Rhine it was always a favoured meeting place for the powerful traders, politicians and soldiers of Europe. In 1949 it was chosen as the headquarters for the Council of Europe and sessions of the European Parliament alternate between here and Luxembourg. Even in the changed times of the 21st Century, it is a railway junction for Paris, the Netherlands, West Germany, and Switzerland, the chief inland port of France and is a major trading and manufacturing centre. Almost as a sideline, the city is also famous for its pate-de-foie-gras and its sauerkraut.

Strasbourg caters for those who enjoy 'special' shopping. In the centre of the old city, near the cathedral, is the shopping street that time forgot, the Grandes Arcades. The nearby Place Kleber hosts an open air market twice a week and the area of Petite France has a number of chic and traditional shops. Those fond of food will also find shopping a pleasure in Strasbourg where the traditional hearty foodstuffs and fine Alsace wines are on offer.

Finally do forget to try the foods of Alsace including foie-gras and choucroute (cabbage cooked with goose fat, onions and juniper berries), and kougelhopf (sweet pastries made with eggs, raisins and almonds) and dry white wines of Alsace are internationally renowned.
