Overnight trip to Strasbourg, France

We have lived in Germany for almost 9 months now and there is sooo much we have yet to see. Take France for example. We are a mere 90 minutes from the border. Sounds wonderful doesn't it?! Weekend trips to France regularly to eat crepes. Laughing over french coffee. We are also within driving distance of many many spectacular places people only dream of visiting. We are 5 hours from Prague, 6 hours from Amsterdam, 2 hours from the Alps, 3 hours (ish) from Austria, 6 hours from Paris, a few hours from Italy...ok you get the idea.
