Strasbourg has been of great importance over the last few centuries in Europe. In fact, although it currently belongs to France, it has long been part of German territory. This has undoubtedly left its mark on its territory, which is loaded with references to the Teutonic country. The cathedral, the Rohan Palace and its many museums testify to all the legacy it has collected and the events it has witnessed. Its historic centre is considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.Strasbourg for lovers of French cuisine
In Strasbourg and the Alsace region as a whole, cuisine is considered to be an art. The most traditional dishes that can be tasted there are the flamed cake, foie gras, spartzle and sauerkraut. Generally, the best places to do it are winstubs, small warm taverns with a pleasant atmosphere. As a curiosity, the city, contrary to what usually happens in France, is well known for its beer, not for its wines. A further indication of German influence over the territory.Strasbourg for a romantic getaway

However, after several excavations, it was discovered that a chapel already existed in its what are now its foundations in the sixth century.
