Strasbourg, France is one of the beautiful cities that you should consider a destination to visit if have the opportunity. While we traveled through Heidelberg, Germany in 2013 our BnB Host recommended that we take a day trip to Strasbourg (they also mentioned it was called Le Petite France and I recalled the region, Alsace-Lorraine for the wine from my still functioning brain cells). Since many people might have already visited that city I won’t attempt to post any history about it and rather just provide a link that can give you the correct facts (no alternative facts, here!): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strasbourg
If you’re into photography, this is the place to visit. If you’re into doors, this is the place to visit. If you’re into eating, this is the place to visit. So, if you haven’t caught the hint yet, visit this place!
We drove there from Heidelberg (I drove) and we parked near some bus or train station and wandered around asking for directions and finally a nice person told us to walk through several blocks turning here and there. Fortunately, I usually remember my directions and specific shops or landmarks so we can find our way back to the car (if I let my wife and her sister handle this task we’d still be searching for the car 3 years later).
One marker was this 1st photo I took before we entered that city center. That was the beginning of the sights we found.
Walking through the quaint Le Petite France, you encounter many tourists but that’s expected. Many German / French style buildings and the river scenes, all well landscaped (I took photos of their old drawbridge that moved sideways to let boats pass rather than moving up and down but I’m not posting it here).
Here’s the start of the qualifying photo that makes it eligible for Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors blog; Norm is like Jonny Appleseed, he placed the door blog seed and it grew and got us unsuspecting door
freaks afficiandos to start planting our door blogs on his site. This photo has a louver balcony door and window coverings with hinges (we also call them “window” doors).
An interesting old door.
Here’s several doors in one shot!
We found the Gothic Cathedral Notre-Dame, here too.
If I run out of door photos again, I’ll have to review my photos from this place to find something to post; reviewing them brings back memories and I wouldn’t mind a return visit.
Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks to Norm 2.0 for his Thursday Doors blog. For more blogs and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.
