Reims (Marne, Grand Est) is famous for Champagne, its Cathedral and its Christmas market.

A weekend here between 22 November – 23 December 2019 will offer an opportunity to indulge in all three.

During the run-up to Christmas, Reims‘ Christmas Village combines street entertainment, magicians, carol singers and market stalls selling Christmas gifts, decorations and food.

130 wooden huts form the Christmas Market in Place d’Erlon and along the rue Condorcet and rue Théodore Dubois. There will be numerous events held each weekend including parades, as well as orchestra and brass band concerts. You can also listen to live jazz performed every Wednesday and Friday afternoon. There will be a special visit with St. Nicolas, but Father Christmas welcomes the children every day in his chalet. For more information on Reims Christmas visit the Reims tourist office website at

And of course Reims is now easy to reach by train from Paris (under an hour from Paris with the new TGV Est)
