    A Visit to Strasbourg

    August 29, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Up till now we have been travelling in Germany, today was our first chance to cross the border into France. The region of Alsace-Lorraine is officially now part of France, but still retains a typical German character in its culture and architecture. This is especially true in the large city of Strasbourg.

    Many trivia quizzes contain a question about which country Strasbourg lies in. I suspect that many people incorrectly answer that it is in Germany, whereas it is actually situated in France.

    Our group found a beautiful restaurant by the river where we stopped for lunch. It would have been hard to find a more idyllic location. Some of the ladies then went off to buy some Alsatian lace, which the region is famous for.

    Europa-Brücke Strassburg-Kehl

    July 14 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

    Ich hatte eine spektakuläre Brücke erwartet, voller Symbolismus für das Miteinander in der Europäischen Union. Aber nichts da, nur eine öde, langweilige Brücke ohne Aufbauten, etwa wie die Palmrainbrücke bei Weil am Rhein.
    Stattdessen habe ich ein Foto von der parallel verlaufenden Tram-, Velo- und Fussgängerbrücke abgebildet.

    Jedenfalls bin ich jetzt wieder auf der deutschen Rheinseite.

    Das zweite Foto zeigt einen ziemlich ausrangierten Güterzug auf dem Abstellgleis, den ich im Strassburger Hafenareal gesehen habe.
