The cathedral

The boats that stroll around the canals and lead you to the EP

Lots of people waving at the boat riders!

The European Parliament

Some people fully enjoying the free goodies of the Open Doors day

Cool kiddo!

The - always crowded - flags' area

The hemicycle

La Petite France

The cathedral on the inside. At 12h each day you can see their clock working, with little figures moving

The view from the cathedral's top (after climbing up 330 steps = 60 meters)

Flammkuchen, a typical dish from Strasbourg

Kougelhopf, a typical cake from Strasbourg
Last weekend I have been to Strasbourg, in a trip organized by the Politics and International Relations and by the Travelling Subcommittees. We took advantage of this being a week when the plenary session of the European Parliament was being held in Strasbourg, to not only visit the Parliament, attend the said plenary session, have a chat with some MEPs, but also to visit this city, so close to the German border. Despite the not so good weather, we were able to fully enjoy the city and it's beautiful sights. I had never been there and definitely returned with a great impression. It's a lovely little town, both by day and at night. We went by bus and took 5h to get there from Brussels. Definitely worth the visit and these well-spent 2 days!
