Strausbourg in the springtime, St. Paul's Church by @claudiumaxim

Back when I was home in Brasov, December used to always be magical: long walks in the freezing snowy white forest, skating with friends and weekends at the cabin. I miss quite a bit, that Christmasy-Winter feeling.

This year, the streets around Paris have been getting festive since mid-November and I was pretty excited about it, but unfortunately Paris's famous Marché de Noël it won't be held this year.

Still, I wanted to do something special for this Christmas. Visiting the capitale of Noël, the city of Strasbourg, was exactly the place that's filled with Christmas magic.

I was so fond of all the Marchés de Noël, the Christmas decorations, the artisanal artwork and of course, the alsacienne food.

Every single corner is filled with fairy lights and holiday-perfect adornments -- strands of lights, green boughs decorated with milles couleurs garlands.

At the end of the day, it's hard to tell if it was real or I was in some fairytale but I know for sure, more than the Christmas decorations, I really enjoyed all the colourful buildings, quaint canals, and medieval architecture. --Dana


TRAVEL TIPS:

Colmar, a fairytale town, is only 30 minutes away from Strasbourg. It's so worth the visit.

Chez Yvonne, a 142-year-old winstub has worn wooden tables, Kelsch d'Alsace fabric and a super delicious traditional menu.
