      Strasbourg

   Wander through the aisles of Strasbourg’s oldest Christmas market, Christkindelsmärik, for handmade local products and snacks, and don’t forget to warm up with a glass of mulled wine. In the afternoon, explore seasonal exhibitions on art, history, and architecture at the Musée Alsacien, or hop onto a Batorama riverboat with the kids and enjoy an original Christmas story!

·       As the evening approaches, head to the narrow lit-up streets full of shops and decorations right on the square of the Notre-Dame Cathedral to be transported into the Christmas fairytales you read as a kid. Just a few blocks away, revel in the festivities with views of the Great Christmas Tree on Place Kléber.

Other villages

Hop onto your private van for the day (pick-up at your hotel) and embark on the charming Alsatian Wine Route. Sample some regional wines as you relax during your city escape. 

For a quaint medieval experience, the architecture of Ribeauvillé, known as the “Cité des Ménétriers” (city of fiddlers” in English), is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the period with timeless costumes and roast boar. Then, head just a few miles away where the the famous Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur church lies - the highlight of the village! Conclude your trip with Christmas illuminations in Eguisheim, officially named as one of the most beautiful villages in France.
