Through the Heart of Europe -- Part 3, Strasbourg

Once back on the boat we embarked on the first stage of the journey -- down the river to Strasbourg. Passing through a number of locks, we floated on through the countryside.

And arrived at our destination.

Swans. Everywhere we went we found swans.

We then transferred to a canal boat for a tour of the city.

The parliament of the European Union meets in Strasbourg in this building.

A man walking his dog along the canal -- you have to look closely to see the dog.

Watch towers and a medieval bridge.

The famous Strasbourg cathedral.

Mockers across the street from the cathedral

The magnificent rose window.

Returning to the river we encountered more swans..., lots of them.
