Christmas market in Strasbourg

Hello everybody!

Year round, Strasbourg scores for traditional charm, but during Advent the capital of Alsace is even more magical. Half-timbered houses are decorated with giant red-and-white hearts, stars, angels and snowflake garlands are hanging over the cobbled streets. The Christkindelsmärik was first held in Strasbourg in 1570, making it the oldest in Europe, and even the towering fir tree on the Place Kléber is a 400 years old custom.

Check out the 11 different,,villages” – themed areas – and don’t miss the bredele biscuits, a local speciality. These special biscuits come in all shapes and flavours, from hazelnut, orange and cinnamon to walnut, coconut and praline. Take them home, hang them on your tree, or just enjoy their delicious taste.

You will also find 4 outstanding Advent concerts, a Living Nativity and a wide range of authentic live music and cultural events here.

When ? From 25th November to 31st December 2016

      1. Ah! Sorry for the misunderstanding! I read the reply as if you’ve been there and haven’t written about it yet 🙂 I was there this weekend – the markets are PACKED. If you want to take nice photos and have the ability to walk around, go right when they open! They are wonderful though!
