Camping in Strasbourg
Most days we walked into the centre with its quaint old town and vibrant new shopping streets. We looked in shops, bought groceries, and meandered along the canals.
If we had worked out the public transportsooner we wouldn't have spent three hours walking to Germany on our second day. The German town of Kehl is just the other side of the Rhine. It looks an easier walk on Google Maps than it actually is.
We enjoyed a bike ride to Achenheim along the canal, stopping to buy lunch in a village patisserie. Tony bought a carrot quiche and I bought a huge slab of cheesecake. We ate them by the water before continuing back to base via Holtzheim, Lingolsheim and Ostwald and then north into Strasbourg (don't do this, by the way - go back the way you came - it's nicer).
On our way back we alighted the tram at the citadel. It's quite a contrast as you walk through the gate into the park. The other side is rather starkly filled with tower blocks.
A week is perhaps a bit long for a city break. I think you could comfortably see most sights if you stayed three nights. Camping Indigo Strasbourg is well placed. Half an hour to walk into the vibrant city centre and right on the bus route, but on the edge of the countryside for cyclists.
The site is bounded by trees but the city noise is a constant reminder you're nowhere rural. Planes and trains run by and there always seems to be a siren in the distance. Two local churches have bells that strike all through the night, every fifteen minutes.
But I'd still go back.
