Strasbourg’s Christmas Market (Bas-Rhin, Grand Est) takes place from
22 November to 30 December 2019
Strasbourg’s Christmas Market takes place in a breathtaking position in front of Strasbourg Cathedral, this is one of the largest Christmas markets in France. The original “Christkindelsmärik” is in Strasbourg and dates back to 1570. The market is dedicated to culinary delights and Christmas decorations and takes place at the Place Brogile. Now in its 400th+ year, this market in Alsace is the oldest Christmas market in France. Do not miss La Petite France, a cosy neighborhood of timbered fairy-tale buildings with Christmas shops and a gingerbread bakery.
Strasbourg adorns itself in its very best finery. Lights sparkle throughout the city and the atmosphere is one of meeting friends and sharing the festive spirit. Mulled wine is sampled in front of the opera or the cathedral, arms are laden with a hundred and one gifts and children are the centre of the celebrations.
The market stretches from the Place de la Gare where visitors flock in their thousands into the city, to the historic heart of the city in Petite France; there is another market from the Place de la Cathédrale to Place Broglie, historic sites of the Christmas market; and lastly, from Place Kléber where the Christmas Tree majestically towers over shoppers, to Place d’Austerlitz, transformed into a “Forêt de Délices” (Forest of Delights); tastes and scents mingle with sweet Christmas music, inviting visitors to enter a world of dreams.
