Mulhouse Christmas Market (68 Haut-Rhin, Grand Est) 23 November – 29 December 2019
Set in the historic heart of the city Mulhouse is the home to an impressive Christmas Market that has maintained its authenticity in a prestigious setting on the Place de la Réunion. Mulhouse offers a typical Alsatian market with half-timbered stalls featuring exceptional fabric and other French products. Sip spice-scented mulled wine and nibble on festive gormet treats such as “bredele” (small typically Alsatian cakes) or Christmas biscuits whilst shopping.
Mulhouse has a tradition of producing high quality fabrics and every year a special Christmas fabric inspired by the collections kept at the Museum of Printing Fabrics is produced to dress the City Hall and façades of the Place de la Réunion, the pedestrian streets and chalets on the Christmas market.
In the historical centre of Mulhouse there will be a traditional Village of Arts and Crafts.
Customs and traditions of the “Pearl of the Danube” will have the place of honour. Let yourself be tempted by the pleasures and wealth of the Hungarian culture. (2008)
