Waterways and canals always seem to make a city extra special. Great reflections...even with crossbar timbers!

We bought a few things at the Strasburg Christmas market about 10 years ago. We were delighted to find that it remained open for several days after Christmas, unlike some of the Chriskindle markets in Germany that seem to close up right after Christmas.

Nicely done, Jack! Rather different architecture than what you'll find in Florida, heh?

I spy, I spy... le marché de Noël ! Strasbourg's Christmas market is a bit too crowded for my liking though!

I didn't know Strasbourg was so pretty.

James said...

Great shot! Looks like Christmas Market booths on the right. This was one of my original destinations when I started planing my trip. I really want to go there someday.

Bob Crowe said...

Just charming. Never been to Strasbourg but the architecture looks very German. It is sort of a border town, isn't it?

Randy said...

What an amazing view!

Tremendous European tour you've done.

Wonderful reflection for today's theme and a great photo of a beautiful place.

Rob and Mandy said...

Indeed. We had some vin chaud at one of the stalls there. The square is called Place Benjamin Zix, and the building in the middle of your photo, la maison des tanneurs, is about 600 years old
