The Christmass Off

An alternative Christmas is possible...
The Christmass Off
Experience an offbeat Christmas with the 2nd OFF Christmas market, which takes a different look at Christmas traditions.

The OFF market is run alongside the traditional Christmas markets and is the opportunity to celebrate the festivities from a new angle - responsible consumption. In this market, you'll find a new, alternative consumerism. The local social and solidarity economy, shopkeepers, artists and associations of the Station district have come up with a splendidly original programme for your enjoyment.

The OFF Market : other products, other values

If you're looking for ethical, responsible and original products, then you'll find everything you need in this market, located in the inner city, against a background of domes and containers.

The 20 or so stallholders will be selling produce from the social and solidarity economy, an original way of surprising your loved ones, while sharing fundamental values.

Vintage furniture, personalised clothing, arts and crafts and organic food, there's something for everybody in this market unlike any other.

Street-art trail

The station area is a district proud of its history and its culture, which offers fascinating opportunities for people who love cities and especially urban art.

This is a district where creative talents can thrive and which has become a haven for artists and cultural institutions alike. Walk round the streets, enjoy the street art and take the time to breathe in this fascinating, energy-filled world.


In the OFF Market in place Grimmeissen and at partner retailers of the station (Gare) district, you can enjoy live music, storytelling for adults, DIY workshops, tasting sessions, afterwork drinks, conferences and discussions. There are over 60 events scheduled for Strasbourg's alternative Christmas.
