Being centrally located, Frankfurt has a lot of options for day trips. There’s tons of castles in the area, a Celtic burial ground, and it’s just a few hours drive to France. When the opportunity to road trip to visit Strausburg, a charming UNESCO World Heritage city, you bet I was the first one in the car. Strausburg has a lot of Germanic influence as it is so close to the France-German border which makes for an absolutely adorable medieval city.
At 466 feet tall, the Strausburg Cathedral is the world’s sixth tallest church. The gothic architecture left me in complete awe of the amount of detail on this “gigantic and delicate marvel” as described by Victor Hugo. For just a few euros, I climbed the stairs to the top of the cathedral to find a breathtaking view from the top.
After the exhausting climb up and back down, it was time for a 2 euro Nutella crepe from a street vendor.
Have you ever been to Strausburg?
