In any French city, you’ll find luxury brands and fancy accessories aplenty, but shopping in Strasbourg really stands out for its local products.
Strasbourg is very famous for lot of number of high -end chocolate shops. In fact these shops look much like chocolate jewelry shops – the chocolate creations and candies are delicious and look like art. The prices also seem closer to a jewelry store than to a candy store. But enjoy, life is short!
La Cure Gourmande is on the same street as the Cathedral. Known as a Sucreuitier (Candy shop) and Biscuitier (Biscuit Shop), it wins first prize for presentation. Upon entering the store, an employee will greet you and offer you a sample of the biscuit of the day. Everything looks magnificent, but be careful if you decide to enter into this place, as there appears to be no turning back!
The Christmas market in Strasbourg is world famous, and the market’s atmosphere should be experienced by everyone. Walking around in the crisp air beneath the city’s fabulous Cathedral while browsing through French gifts brings a whole new perspective to the holiday spirit! You can buy Christmas gifts and decorations, but you can also browse French postcards depicting the cathedral, sweaters, berets, candles, handicrafts and more.
La Village de la Biere
Here’s a little shop where you can purchase all sorts of different craft beers, beer glasses and beer accessories. Belgian beers, UK beers, along with beers from other countries were available for purchase, and though the prices are high, the place is quite popular.
There’s a seemingly endless selection of souvenir shops in Strasbourg, especially around the streets near the Strasbourg Cathedral and on Cathedral square. The shops stand tightly packed side by side, each with their wares on display outside. There’s a little street which runs between the Cathedral and the River Ill where you can souvenir shop here to your heart’s content. Everything you can think of is available from baby clothes to sun hats to local crafts, coffee mugs and the ever-present stork-emblazoned goods.
There are only two big supermarkets in Strasbourg’s city center – Monoprix and Simply (a branch of Auchan) – which means they are packed at most times of the day. Simply is on Rue des Grandes Arcades, halfway between Place Gutenberg and Place Kleber. You’ll find the slightly better Monoprix supermarket on Place Kleber, in a basement underneath the department store.
