December is supposed to be very cold in Strasbourg. That was not really the case during our visit (global warming, hehe!) but nevertheless, it was cool enough to make all the "vin chaud" booth a must. Vin chaud (warm wine) is sold as small, medium or large glasses. It is usually made with red wine heated in large pots with star-shaped anis (badiane), cinnamon corks and lemon pieces.

You also can buy Bretzels, gaufres (wafers), various kinds of sandwiches including amazing "tarte flambée sur baguette".

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
