The river ride around Strasbourg

One really neat thing to do in Strasbourg is to take the river ride. It is a little over an hour long, but you see a lot of things that you may not see when you are walking.

The boats lined up. These boats as you can see have a glass top. I apologize if any pictures from the boat may have a little sheen to them. The glass would reflect depending on where the sun was coming in.

Purchase tickets here.

These two pictures were when we had to enter a dike (actually two of them) so they could either add water or remove. Kinda cool. Hubby had not been in one since back in his "young" fish boat days.

Look at all the red geranium window boxes!
These next three pictures are among my favorites.

The water fountain, so pretty.

What a beautiful place to sit and people/boat watch.

Now this one is my favorite out of all of them!

I want to go back now!
