Strasbourg Cathedral de Notre-Dame

Strasbourg straddles the border between France and Germany. I spent a long weekend there with my husband, in 2007. He lived there from the time he was 8 until his family up and moved to the States, when he was in high school. My favorite part of the city–about which I’ll write more in future posts–was the gothic cathedral. Everything about it draws the eye up.
