Today we spent a wonderful day walking the cobbled streets of Strasbourg, after entering the town by tram, we walked along the canal and caught the next tourist boat (Batorama) which gave us a unique perspective of the buildings and mixed German/France rule over the last 200 years. After we hoped off the boat we walked through the streets until we found the Cathedral of Notre Dame which had no queue or no charge to enter. This building is one of the most ornately decorated cathedral I think we have seen to date. Walking further through town we found some lovely Christmas decorations shops and purchased a couple of items that will feature in our place next Christmas. We finally found one of the locks that the Batorama boats went through and watched the lock system working. It was very impressive the speed in which the boats with about 200 people could be raised and lowered.
