And now, it’s Christmas market time. There are several Christmas markets in Strasbourg, the two biggest are the one at Place Brogile and the one in front of the Cathedral.

If in need of a place to sit down, try a cup of Viennese hot chocolate from Hotel Suisse, which is just a minute from the Cathedral.

First of the many cups of hot wine. The cup itself is 1 euro, which you can get back upon returning the cup to any hot wine stand within that particular market.
