Langres in Champagne

 How lucky are we to live in the heart of Europe in 
tiny little Luxembourg with all the nice scenery around us?
After nearly 10 years in this country
 and a lot(!) of traveling we still haven't seen it all.

So early on Saturday morning we took the car and went on a little road trip to France. After a couple of hours on the motorway we went off towards Langres, placed at the gateway to Champagne and Burgundy.
With its 7 towers, 7 gates and 3,5 km of ramparts it is classified as one of the 50 finest towns in France. We had a nice stroll in the narrow streets without many tourists. I can only imagine how busy it most be in the peak season in summer. The shops close earlier in the winter season, but we did manage to buy local wine and cheese before they closed. 
A lovely place to spend a Saturday in January.
