Day Trips from Stasbourg...advice on Metz vs. Nancy

Jump to last reply

I'm heading back to Europe in December (yipee!).

As usual, my mom will be my traveling partner, and yes, we know it will be cold, well, cold for us, since we live on the South Carolina coast! :-) We will be spending 6 nights in Strasbourg. I've been doing a little research here and there and know that we definitely want to do a day trip to Colmar.

We'd like to do at least one, possibly 2 more day trips. We will be doing the day trips via train and would like to spend no more than one and a half hours each way on a train. Metz and Nancy are two towns/cities that have piqued some interest. If you only had to choose one which would be your pick and why? Or do you have other recommendations for day trips.

FWIW, our interests tend to lean towards, food, wine, photography (for me), interesting musuems (they don't have to be the "big must see" type museums, we like quirky kinds of things too!)

We do have enough days where we could comfortably plan 3 day trips outside Strasbourg, but I also don't want to plan so much outside the city that we wouldn't have much time to explore the nooks and crannies of Strasbourg.
