Strasbourg Photos: Taking You Back in Time to the 1500s

By Expatgermany @Laurel_Robbins

strasbourg photos of the Petit France QuarterClose your eyes and go back in time to a fairy tale town with half timbered houses, long sloping roofs dating back to the 1500s.  Now imagine these houses along a small waterway with swans leisurely swimming along and quaint bridges.  When you come to Strasbourg, France, you don’t have to imagine it, you can see it for yourself in the Petit France Quarter, my favorite part of Strasbourg.  Here I feel transported back in time and can almost see the fisherman going out for the daily catch in his row boat and the millers and tanners going about their daily work.   No wonder that Strasbourg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the only city in France to hold this honor.
