Sorry for not knowing French, but does "Strasbourg carrefour de l'Europe" mean "Strasbourg supermarket of Europe"?

Strasbourg crossroads of Europe.

Some stupid advertising line. It's not an important crossroad at all. There isn't even a motorway continuing into Germany, nor is there significant east-west traffic. Most north-south traffic bypasses Strasbourg via German A5. I'd say Strasbourg is actually one of the least important crossroad of any major city in France.

I think it is due to its history of crossroad between French and German worlds. Alsace and Lorraine passed from France to Germany and vice versa during the centuries that they are a bit of both.

Well, you could consider it a crossroad of culture and language. Hundreds of towns and villages in the region have German names. But it isn't a transportation crossroad.

I think that this is what they meant when they invented the slogan. It was never a matter of transportation.

Indeed, and Strasbourg also hosts the Council of Europe + the European Court of Human Rights + many smaller European institutions !!

I also think that it's not meant literally. But Chris has automatically first association on highway interchange, so there you go.

I think they first wanted to wrote "Strasbourg, Capitale de l'Europe", but they certainly thought it was a bit too much..so they wrote "carrefour" instead, which is less..arrogant !

I don't have impression that there is a big city on the left; similar to A4 bypassing Metz.

True. Although A4 bypasses Metz from a bigger distance than A35. A35 comes quite close to the city center (only 1 km!)

The most motorways in big cities sometimes are underground; above of that particurarly road they have parks, trees or a simple road.
That's you mean using the word "hidding" right?
