We are planning a trip for early December 2012 (we plan way early!) and have rented an apartment for a week in Paris. We are considering adding a few days in Strasbourg at one end of the trip or the other, mostly because we hate to travel to Europe and not spend more than a week there and we'd like to see the Christmas markets.....and it is about the only part of France we've never visited.

I've been reading threads recently which seem to favor the smaller villages over Strasbourg but I'm wondering if this is the case for travel in December. We are not particularly interested in renting a car. We're thinking that driving may be on snowy mountain roads, which we are not used to, and we'd not likely drive anywhere for dinner since we're less inclined to tackle those roads in the dark.

Would we be missing a significant experience by spending a few days in Strasbourg and seeing what we can by train vs. renting a car and staying in smaller villages?
