If you’ll ask a person what he/she is doing now in Strasbourg, you’ll figure out if they are locals or tourists)).
For locals, it’s about swimming in the lakes, having lunch at the outdoor terraces, visiting a great park in Kehl across the Rhine. (Tourists mostly aim at the old town, trying to survive in the summer heat).

A short video about the place:
Strawberry picking is one of the highlights of summer and our family tradition, the one, that keeps us energized through grey, wet winters.
We pick up every time around 8 kilos, all gone in 3 days!
The nice animal park is right near the strawberry field, located in the shade. Deer, lots of birds, etc.
Lake Ballastiere is on the way back to the city, great in the summer for swimming.
