Strasbourg Christmas Market
The Strasbourg Christmas Market is held in the picturesque town centre every year which is considered the perfect setting for visitors wanting to immerse themselves in a festive ambience.
Set around Broglie Place and Cathedral Square, Strasbourg's Christmas market spreads out into the surrounding streets and plazas, where over 300 stall holders tempt visitors with their original gifts and traditional specialities.
The Strasbourg Christmas Market has been held around the historic Cathedral since 1570 which has given the city a reputation of upholding tradition and culture and is one of the oldest and largest Christmas markets in France. Along with the variety of craftsmanship on show, the city is popular with cake lovers as local bakers display their finest goods. There are also plenty of amazing sights and activities to see, from the wonderfully decorated Christmas tree on Place Kléber, to the ice skating rink along the Place du Château. There are plenty of culinary delights on offer around the city, including the fantastic gingerbread bakery in La Petite France, and the various sausages, choucroute and famous three-meat baeckeoffe stew on offer throughout the market.
Strasbourg city breaks are perfect for couples who want to spend their evenings amidst the sparkling lights and festive ambience of the market stalls.
