SUNDAY 5 JULY 2015
"THE STRASBOURG THAT I LOVE "
Special Guest is Peter Schlipf, German-American Photographer and Photo journalist based in Germany.
"What orginally attracted me to Strasbourg was the duality of the culture there; a perfect mix of French and German (Don't tell the Alsacians that). Many Alsatians speak French and German and often also English.
Modern Strasbourg is the perfect example of a French/German friendship that nobody thought was possible 70 years ago.
The Jardin des Deux Rive, which opened in 2009 is the crowning jewel: a park on both sides of the borders on the Rhine connected by a pedestrian bridge that you can cross day or night with no checkpoints.
(There was a time where you could have been shot just for thinking that.)
And as of 2016, the Strasbourg City Tram will be crossing over the Rhine to Kehl, Germany, bringing both sides even closer together.
There's a lot happening on the water as well.
Strasbourg is the capitol of Europe with the highest concentration of consulates in France outside of Paris. This creates an ever present multi-cultural flavor and cultural diversity.
Historically, what I will also be featuring is the Place de la Republique area, also known as the "German Quarter".
When Germany beat France in 1871 and took over Alsace, Kaiser Wilhelm II re-built the area with what was then "modern" German architechture, which today offers a unique, traditional French/German flareSo there are a lot of reasons to jump on the TGV and head east to Strasbourg anytime of the year - and not only just for the Christmas markets."
