Gutenberg Square is located in the central island of Strasbourg. It is named Gutenberg, which initiated letterpress printing in Ming Dynasty. In the middle of the square stands a bronze statue of Gutenberg. The old German houses around it are very beautiful. There are many cafes and restaurants. A very leisurely square is worth visiting.
Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace, France, has been occupied by France and Germany for many times in history. The urban architecture has obvious German characteristics. The "last lesson" that he learned while reading took place in this city. He chose the last French lesson that France ceded Alsace and Lorraine to the German historical background. He was deeply impressed by the sentence "He turned to the blackboard, picked up a piece of chalk, and with all his strength, wrote a few big words "Long live France". Gutenberg Square is less than 200 meters west of Strasbourg Cathedral, named after Gutenberg, who invented letterpress. The square is small, surrounded by colourful buildings and many street performers. After visiting the cathedral, you can stroll around it. It's also very comfortable.
About 200 meters from the main entrance of the cathedral is Gutenberg Square, the originator of movable-type printing in Europe. On the relief on the west side of the bronze statue, there are at least six Chinese characters. I was surprised to find out who this is. Gutenberg is the only one. Two foreign students who have lived here for 12 years have not noticed this detail. Looking at the previous comments, I know that many Chinese tourists have not paid attention to this relief. Today, Gutenberg Printer is still the world's first-class egg brusher.
There is a statue of Gutenberg, the founder of the commemorative printing industry, on the square.
