City of Strasbourg is located near German's city, Offenburg. It is around one hour by Badden Wuttemburg (BW) train from Freiburg. This city is quite bigger as it is already more than 2000 years old. When you start the journey from Freiburg, German, you can go to offenburg and buy the train ticket for crossing the border to Strasbourg station. When I was there, the station was under heavily renovated. To go to the downtown, you can go straight. You will find a quite crowded streets especially after crossing the river. This river is quite nice with a pedestrian besides the river.
The main view is Strasbourg catedral which has tallest tower in the world. Frankly speaking, I was surprised at that time as that church was very very tall. It has a gothic style altough as not rich as Duomo (catedral) in Milano. I beg that you will have the same experience as me when you see it. Surround the catedral, you will see many shop with old style of houses. I heard that it is a UNESCO herritage site. For you, Tintin cartoon collector, you will happy to see many Tintin post cards which are sold by those shops. When I visited there, the weather was very nice, not to hot but also not cloudy so I could enjoy walking around the city. As the city is quite big, don't forget to look at the map to find the nice place to see or visit.
