At the weekend we decided to enjoy a bit of sun, “French-style”. As the weather was so nice, we went to a nearby park (less than 30 minutes from our residence) in Le Jardin des Deux Rives (the garden on both sides). As the name suggests, there are two sides, separated by the River Rhine which divides France and Germany. There is a footbridge we can walk across to enter into Germany.
We enjoyed some good cheese and wine, along with a baguette. I could get used to this!
Later that evening we were treated to a free open-air concert called “Symphonie des Deux Rives” performed by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg (Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra). At the finale, there was a spectacular fireworks display.
Apparently these free open-air concerts are quite common, so I look forward to more of these.
