Strasbourg Christmas Market

Locally called Christkindelsmärik (Marché de l’Enfant Jésus) the Strasbourg Christmas Market is one of the oldest in Europe.

Open daily from Nov.27th til Christmas Eve. Little wood stalls offer Christmas ornaments, decorations, handcrafted items, mulled wine, cakes, candies, and gingerbread. 

Strasbourg’s Christmas market dates back to 1570, making it the oldest in France and was voted “Europe’s best Christmas Market”. Do you see why?  Isn't it beautiful and so festive?!!
