We were in Strasbourg in July. Lovely city. We enjoyed a delicious and
authentic Alsatian feast in Le Saint-Sepulchre, 15 rue des Orfévres. Tel. 03
88 32 39 07. Closed Sun., Monday.
It's a fun down-home winstub with excellent traditional food. Not fancy at
all, but friendly and atmospheric. Cheap too - only about 130 FF a person,
with lots of filling Alsatian food. Didn't think I'd like choucroute, but
wanted to try it once, and sure enjoyed it there.
As for a short afternoon trip, why not drive west to the wine route and head
south. The Obernai area is not far south, and there are many charming and
intereting villages to explore there. We especially enjoyed the tiny village
of Boersch - nestled inside ancient fortified gateways, with much of the
14th century walls still surrounding the town, &a beautiful town square
with an impressive Renaissance well. Another charmer in the area is Barr, a
picture-postcard village with a lovely fountain and lots of half-timbered
