Strasbourg Day 1 – Christmas Markets & Cheese

It only seemed appropriate to spend our first day in Strasbourg eating our way through the Christmas market. We started off with the farmers markets. There is a nice sized market near our place where you can buy meat, cheese, Chinese food, and bread. We sampled a bunch of items but ended up with a bag full of sausages and cheese.

After stocking up on meat and cheese we headed to the Christmas markets. We enjoyed cookies, hot wine, and looked at ornaments as M and I showed my parents around our new home.

One treat we did get to try was chestnuts roasting over an open fire. Which are honestly terrible. They are bland and have an odd texture. I do not recommend.

After a long day of shopping we made reservations at a restaurant M and I love. It really embraces the love France has for cheese. La Cloche a Fromage

M and I visited this restaurant a couple month ago while searching for somewhere to eat online. Little did we know it was a fantastic experience restaurant. They have raclettes, fondue, and their very own “cheese master”. The pictures really speak for itself.

Want photos of the pretty Christmas lights in Strasbourg? Prime time is 9:00PM or later during the week. You will be able to get fantastic photos with barely anyone in the streets.
