Experience a one-of-a-kind Christmas

In the Rhenish tradition Christmas is one of the loveliest times of the year. A warm, cosy atmosphere, delicate aromas of cinnamon and spices, sublime decorations and illuminations come together to create that special atmosphere that takes over all of Alsace!

Discover the chalets at the Christmas markets, give into temptation and try all the exquisite Christmas treats along with a delicious mug of mulled wine. Craftspeople display their wares and their skills, with all kinds of delicately made objects that will make perfect gifts. Everywhere the streets come alive with activity, offering a multitude of convivial encounters in the purest of Christmas spirits.

A constellation of festivities

As Christmas approaches, enjoy a wide range of festive events and activities all filled with emotion.

That of a carol concert, where the warmth of voices in the choir will uplift your soul. That of an indulgent moment, when the aromas and flavours of Christmas will sharpen your appetite. That of sharing, as you listen to the Alsatian tales and legends woven around the legendary figures of St. Nicolas, Hans Trapp and Christkindel.

Christmas in Alsace is the promise of a welcoming, authentic Christmas, which we warmly invite you to come and share.
