Many of the best restaurants in Strasbourg specialise in Alsatian cuisine, which shares several characteristics with its German neighbour. During your culinary travels, you're bound to discover many dishes that are rarely heard of across the border, such as spaetzles (egg noodles), waedele (ham hock), and bredeles (biscuits). 

    Strasbourg is known for its wines, which you can enjoy at a traditional winstub (wine lounge). It's a great place to sit down, enjoy a friendly, easy-going atmosphere, and above all, be open to the experience. Check out our guide to the must-try restaurants in Strasbourg.
