Christmas Markets 2022

Discover the ancestral magic of Christmas

From Advent to Epiphany, a genuine Christmas thrill runs through Alsace.

The festivities are not limited to Christmas markets: throughout the region, there are no less than 150 celebrations for the end of the year (markets, festivals, shows, songs, parties, etc.) and many traditional recipes to enjoy on this occasion.
