For five glorious weeks at the end of each year, Strasbourg, France puts on a light show that is nothing short of spectacular. All over the island that is the ancient heart of the Alsatian capital, buildings are bathed in colored lights. Last Sunday, music lovers attending a concert entered at the Temple Neuf church entered and exited past the lights of this fine old building.
The entire city is aglow through a month-long festival of lights, and I thrilled to wander cobblestone streets, and soak up the holiday atmosphere. Here are my “top ten” views from my evenings beneath the stunning lamps of Strasbourg.
Lights are just part–albeit a big part–of the holiday fervor in Strasbourg. Head over to Euro Travelogue for fine descriptions of Christmas markets here, and a tour through some of Alsace’s most picturesque Christmas destinations.
