Hello everyone! Lately it has been very difficult for me to keep up with the blog due to holidays and work. But I finally managed to finish this post which has been seating in my draft for nearly a month. However, I still want to tell you all about my second round in Strasbourg and the things I did and the places I have seen.
If you haven’t read the first part, I would suggest you reading out ‘Weekend in Strasbourg – Part 1‘. This time we took two of our friends with us and spent about 3 full days doing things back and forth in France and Germany since Strasbourg is so close to the border. But let me break it down in days so I can give you some ideas if you ever plan to hit this place 😉
Since it turned out to be a rainy Saturday we took it easy and went for some shopping to Zweibrücken the Style Outlet located in Germany. Unfortunately, I didn’t go crazy because the space in my luggage was already limited so I only bought a couple of small items: nails treatment in Ritual + eyebrows powder set, a cute bodysuit in Abercrombie & Fitch, chocolates in Lindt and some fitness gear in my fav sports shop, Nike.
At night, we got together with friends in Strasbourg city and went for dinner to a small restaurant called Chez Laurette. I ordered their fish dish with vegetables (Dos de cabillaud rôti et sa compotée de tomates et oignons) and drank a big glass of picon citron 😋. The food was very good and the staff very friendly. A visit to this place won’t disappoint you for sure! Afterwards we ended up having drinks in Au fut et a Mesure and in What the Fox to simply enjoyed the rest of the night among friends.
The sky finally cleared off and the sun came out – so we headed to the beautiful Lac Blanc (white lake) where you can hike in the snow, ski, snowboard or simply admire the landscape. I swear I could have spent the whole day over there because it was SO MUCH FUN!
The Lac Blanc is located more or less an hour away from where we were staying (Kilstett) and while on the way, we passed by some of the Alsatian wineries and places where you can taste their strongly delicious Munster cheese 🙂 but this is something I’d rather do around summertime.
Our last day was a quiet one. We went back to Caracalla in Baden Baden (Germany) just to chill in the therms for about 3 hours before heading to Strasbourg City again in the afternoon. When we arrived into the city, we toured around to show our friends how lovely the city is under the daylight and the beautiful Cathédrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg.
A friend of ours recommended us to stop by a lovely café called Bistrot & Chocolat – where we ordered delicious desserts and hot beverages. But I will write a separate post with photos about this place because it was worth the visit and it deserves its own space.
The day flew by so fast that in no time, it was already night time. We went for a quick drink to Academie De La Bière and we finished our day with a bowling session that left our arms in pieces, but the pain was definitely worth it!
I simply LOVE this city! I also love the amazing people I’ve met there and I look forward to meeting them again soon <3
Thanks for reading 🙂
