Trip Report Strasbourg in September

Jump to last reply

I went to Strasbourg for a day (and a night) last week, because I had calculated that the weather would be lovely at this time of year, and it was. I bought the train tickets a couple of months ago and got round trip 1st class for 60€. Outgoing was a normal TGV and the return was by idTGV -- I noticed that the idTGV train was slightly newer, but they were both perfect for a ride of less than two and a half hours.

Since it was a budget trip, I stayed at the Ibis Petite France for just 50€ (normal rate 93€ during the week). You can save just about the same percentage at the various Accor hotels by booking ahead over the internet as when you book train tickets. The hotel was just fine and had a Leclerc supermarket right across the street and a tram stop in front of the door. What more can you want for convenience? It's only 300 meters from the train station anyway.

Anyway, I made one of my inevitable photo reports, and this time I was a real tourist, taking the tourist boat and everything, so if anybody is hesitating about whether Strasbourg is worth a visit, this should help you make up your mind: http://tinyurl.com/sxb-2012

warning: there are at least 400 photos, think.
