The world cultural heritage city on the border of Germany and France, the French town of Strasbourg, where the ancient rhyme still exists, is a colorful and spiritual place. Walk along the winding river, stroll through the charming streets, walk into the magnificent church, feel the sacred and solemn, and you can't help but fall in love with the bleak and elegant life.
Historically, Strasbourg is in a superb zone of multiple ethnic activities. From the original Celtic, to Gaul, Germanic, and later Frank, Charlemagne, these nations have left their footprints in Strasbourg. It is not only a great place to appreciate the wonders of architecture, but also a historical city that understands the history and culture of the region and the ancient civilization.
Sophie's French Travel Notes
Strasbourg Strasbourg, located near the French-German border, is a 30-minute train ride from Colmar, the theme of Zhao Wei's Chinese restaurant.
The most worthwhile sight to visit here, the non-Strasbourg church Cathdrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg. The church was built in 1176 and was not completed until 1439. It is built from the pink sandstone of the Vosges Mountain. It looks dark red and black in the distance and looks old and solemn. The French writer Hugo once commented on the church as a huge and slim building in an amazing building.
It is also the sixth-highest Catholic church in the world. The highest part is the Gothic minaret 142 meters. It needs to be very far away and with a wide-angle lens to complete the film. Inside the church, visitors are required to remain quiet and even broadcast, asking everyone not to make a sound.
main point of view
1. Round flower window inside the church and several huge color windows
2. Golden organ produced by German Schieberman family
3. Hiding in the right corner of the church is 7-8 meters high. Every quarter of an hour, there are children, youth, adults and old people representing the four stages of the life of the statue, and there will be a whole point of death, from 1547 The operation is still on time and accurate, and it has never gone wrong.
4. Countless exquisite figures engraving
As the most French-speaking French church, the Gothic building of the Virgin Cathedral, covered with dark pink ornately carved Vosges sandstone, is the most shocking first Gothic church. Passing through the crowded alleys, looking up at the church with his head up, it is not an exaggeration to describe the church in Hugos words, "Gathering a huge and slim in an amazing building."
The buildings around the church should not be underestimated. They are very popular. For example, the black and white wooden rib house in the upper left corner of the picture is said to be the oldest pharmacy in France. The first floor is made entirely of stone, and the branches and snakes are carved on the corridor. The upper half-timbered building began in 1567, and the age of the sandstone column is still clearly identifiable.
The medieval builders continue to decorate the exterior contours of the church with elongated stone poles.
The cathedral is a 142-meter-high spire, and there is only one platform on the other side. It should have been a symmetrical spire. It was not built because of the limited financial resources at that time. Now it has become its characteristic. On top of the tower, it overlooks the whole of Strasbourg.
Leaving the cathedral, our tour of Strasbourg is coming to an end, the sunset is beginning to go west, and we walk to a corner of the street. There is a huge architectural model of the city of Strasbourg. Go to the tall building, that is the Cathedral of Our Lady that we just left.
The predecessor of St. Stephen's Cathedral was built in the 12th century and is the representative style of the year - Romanesque style. After the Habsburg dynasty ruled Austria, it was expanded and a new north-south tower was built. At that time, the Gothic style was popular. I guess that I haven't finished it yet, the Renaissance has become popular, and the leader has been thinking about it. "This style is very trendy," so the North Tower built later has some Renaissance styles (but to be honest, I can't see where the North Tower belongs to literature and art. Revival, hahaha). The expansion of the eighteenth century added a Baroque style to it. Through these centuries of time, St. Stephen's Cathedral has a collection of representative architectural styles of each era, which are mutually inclusive and eclectic. In the last days of World War II, it was destroyed by fire and destroyed. After seven years of reconstruction, it was resurrected.
The Alsace region is rich in vineyard culture and has a dry climate, abundant sunshine, complex geology, and soil for viticulture and ideal exposure, so the wines produced in the region are of high quality and world-famous.
The historic town has forgotten its name. Every house, every lane, is like an old-fashioned vicissitudes of time, and it takes time to slow down.
There are many well-known wineries here, which are very historical and traditional. Therefore, every year, wine merchants from all over the world come here for business trips. Because it was a group tour, we also visited a very famous local winery under the arrangement of the travel agency, and tasted the excellent wine for free. At the same time, I have to say that European wines are very expensive to sell in China, but they are very cheap in the local area, and they are cheap enough to be imagined, so I can't help but bring a few bottles back to my relatives and friends.
This town is about half an hour's drive from Strasbourg. The idyllic scenery along the way is very beautiful. It is very suitable for self-driving. Especially when the weather is good, the beauty is hard to describe. No wonder many people will choose to settle here.
Located in the heart of Strasbourg, the Strasbourg Cathedral, completed in 263 years, is one of the most important historical buildings in the Middle Ages and a famous Gothic church in Europe. The church is entirely made of pink sandstone from the Vosges Mountains. On the top of the front, on one side is a 142-meter-high minaret, but on the other side there is only one platform. It should have been a symmetrical spire. It was not built because of the limited financial resources at that time. Now it has become its characteristic. The Fortress Cathedral is also very famous. Ascend to the top of the tower, the city's beautiful scenery and magnificent forests and mountains are unobstructed.
There is an 11-meter-high astronomical clock in the church. Every 15 minutes, there are children, young people, young people and old people who represent the four stages of life. But every hour, there is a god of death. The timekeeping time is accurate, and by the time the clock is heard at 12:30, there will be a lot of characters coming out of the field, bringing a compelling, lively and humorous scene.
This skirt always reminds me of the movie "Spring of the Cowboy Class". When I bought it, my friends laughed and said that it was like Mosleyan's wind and cow clothes. When I was wearing it, I could go directly to the ranch as a staff member. Haha. . This time, I took it to Europe and wore it in Strasbourg, France. In the background of the fairytale wooden rib house in the town, it was very local and completely integrated into the atmosphere.

Due to its geographical proximity to Germany, the architecture is mostly German. A small scenic spot on the right hand side of the train station is a very special place in Strasbourg.
The whole river embankment is connected by a number of different styles of stone bridges on both sides.

Take a stroll along the river embankment and experience the unique blend of German and French culture.

Walking into Strasbourg, I walked into the elegant little town of France and walked into a quiet and bleak time. This small French border town reveals leisure and beauty everywhere, with an unforgettable unique charm.

These two different cultures The place where the meeting meets. It is precisely because of this multicultural integration that this small town has a unique and unique charm.
