the perfect weekend
Posted Jul 25, 2016
i picked Strasbourg for a weekend getaway. Traveling alone from Stuttgart, where I'm working for a few weeks, it was the prefect choice and the Gutenberg was a big part of that. The staff is friendky and helpful, and kinder than I expected with my attempts at French (their English is great). The location is ideal - I was able to walk everywhere and the staff provided excellent recommendations for making the most of my short visit. I LOVED my under-the-roof room - which had not been available when I made my reservation and they were able to accommodate when I checked it. I liked that it added to the uniqueness and comfort of my visit. Just perfect for a woman alone! I walked to the Cathedral de Notre Dame for an 11 pm showing of an outdoor light and music projection on the walls of the Cathedral, gathering with hundreds of others who enjoyed the stunning event, despite the rain. I sat under umbrellas at cafe on Gutenberg square afterward, enjoying coffee and dessert, watching the rain and enjoying the company of other customers until well after midnight and felt at ease walking back to my rooftop home afterward. The view of the lit cathedral and rooftops was unreal. Thank you so much - can't wait to return.
