Tasting a traditional

Tempted by the fine smell of a wood fire...

...you leave the Petite-France quarter on a search for the perfect "flammekueche," as the "tarte flambée" is known here—a highlight of your stay in Strasbourg.

Along the hilly streets, you reach the Coucou des Bois, an historic inn that's known for its tarte flambée. Your mouth waters as you read the menu: flammekueche with crème fraîche and fromage blanc, accompanied by salmon, bacon, mushrooms... and even fruit! Christmas in Strasbourg is a real delicacy.
