The Ideal Way to Experience the Strasbourg Christmas Markets

It was in Strasbourg in 1570 that the very first edition of the oldest Christmas market in Europe took place, then called the “Christkindelsmärik”. Ever since, Strasbourg has perpetuated the tradition of a an authentic, warm and generous Alsatian Christmas. More than 300 stalls are spread out over 12 locations under the glow of the city’s illuminations, making Strasbourg one of the largest Christmas markets in Europe.

There are eleven markets throughout central Strasbourg, including just outside the train station, outside the Cathedral, on Place Broglie, on Place Kléber (with the largest real Christmas Tree in France grown specifically for the market), at Place Corbeau by the Alsatian Museum, at Place Gutenberg where there’s a guest visitor market each year, in Petite France overlooking the River L’Ill, at Place d’Austerlitz specializing in only foods and drinks, outside the Temple Neuf Church, and the furthest at Cité de la Musique et de la Danse next to the ice skating rink.

Today, follow your guide on a tour that will take you to several different markets that are located all over the town. The selection of the markets visited will be made in the morning depending on your different wishes as to what you would like to see, discover or purchase as each market has its specialty.
