Christmas Market #10 2011--Strasbourg

Our tenth Christmas Market of the 2011 holiday season was in Strasbourg, France. Jeff, Kelly and I made the hour, forty-five minute drive to Strasbourg to take in the French Christmas spirit.

As expected, Strasbourg was beautiful! Even individual stores were decorated to the max.

Another pretty store front in Strasbourg.

Pretty chandeliers hung on this street.

The immense size of the Cath├ędrale Notre-Dame-de-Strasbourg, Cathedral of Our Lady, can be seen here with the city's Christmas Market vendors just visible.

Lots of umbrellas and rain coats on this day but still a nice day. 

Another cute store front in the Cathedral square.

In spite of the constant drizzle the kids still enjoyed the merry-go-round.

The dark half-timbered building rising above the Christmas Market is the medieval Maison Kammerzell .

Nice ice skating rink for little kids and all ages.

Strasbourg's Cathedral square was a beautiful setting for their Christmas Market.

Decorated street leading to the Cathedral.

A strange French Christmas tree.

A very nicely decorated hotel in the Petite-France area of Strasbourg.

Another small Christmas Market in Strasbourg's Petite-France.

Well, that's it for our 2011 Christmas Market experience. We made it to ten. We were planning on one more, Heidelberg, but we'd finally had enough of the rain and there was more in the forecast. So, for now, stay dry and warm and have a Merry Christmas.
