Strasbourg, France transforms into a real life Christmas village. First-time visitors to Strasbourg will feel as if they are looking at a movie backdrop. The city’s rich architectural heritage embraces styles from the Medieval, Renaissance, Romantic and Art Nouveau eras. The old town is a maze of narrow streets and alleys that beckon you to wander and look up at the rooflines and steeples. Each street seems more elaborately decorated than the next with lights, tinsel and even teddy bears hanging from buildings.The reflections of half-timbered houses with sloping roofs, reminiscent of those seen in fairytales. At every turn, you will want to stop and take photographs.
