Marché de Noël à Strasbourg 2008
Alex sneaks into the picture....
There are many marché de noël's in the city center of Strasbourg. They are quite different from the ones I experienced in Paris, though you could still find some of the same "types" of Christmas/holiday trinkets. The ones in Strasbourg focus more on things you typically find in the region of Alsace along with traditional food of the region. I can definitely say that if I had to choose between the two places to visit at Christmas time, I would DEFINITELY choose Strasbourg over Paris- as it felt much more festive and also, I just adore this cute and charming town.
