Place Kléber in Strasbourg, France
Last year we wrote a post titled “9 European cities we think you should visit and why“, highlighting our favourite cities in Europe, outside the obvious superstars like Rome, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and Prague. That was before we visited Strasbourg.
Located near the German border in the Alsace region of eastern France, this medieval city is widely recognized for its historical city on the Grande Île (Grand Island). La Petit France, arguably the cutest neighbourhood in Western Europe, is the clear fan favourite, but another notable attraction is Place Kleber, the largest square in Strasbourg and the heart of its commercial area.
It’s a little touristy, but we enjoyed visiting the photogenic square on multiple occasions. Every morning, we visited a bakery in the square with outdoor seating that serves some of the best pain au chocolat and cafe au lait. It’s the perfect spot to people watch and soak up the eclectic Strasbourg vibe.
