Survey Says: Day Trip to Strasbourg from Paris?

Jump to last reply

I want to start by saying that I know the distance on the TGV between Paris and Strasbourg. I think some people may scoff at the idea of Strasbourg as a day trip simply because of the travel time. But that's not my concern. I'm traveling alone, and it doesn't bother me to get up early and come home late. I'm an efficient traveler who would rather see places quickly than not at all. I'm headed to Paris November 11-15.

Just curious though--since I will be traveling by train, will I be dumped off in the city center? And how far is the station from the pedestrian friendly area where I presume I'd want to hang out? Is it walkable, a cab ride away, public transport?

This idea to go to Strasbourg just popped into my head during Monday Night Football, much like the trip did this weekend. I'm a flight attendant for JetBlue (American carrier), so I'm fortunate to be able to take these kinds of jaunts across the pond for pennies on the dollar. That's another reason why I don't feel like my money's worth is in jeopardy here; I can always go back if the spirit moves me :)

For those who have been to Strasbourg, is it a memory you can't live without? Is it really the charming half-Francophile, half-Bavarian town I'm sketching in my mind? I appreciate your feedback!
