Christmas in music

Published on 14 November 2019

Listen carefully and get caught by surprise by some Christmas musical notes or the procession of a fanfare around a market or by your fireside…

Background music in the town

This year music will be in the spotlight more than ever at Strasbourg Capital of Christmas. Because celebrating Christmas in songs is now part of the great traditions, and Strasbourg offers you a number of playlists to add an additional touch of magic to your visit.

To make the event even more magical, a background atmosphere will be in place on place Broglie, place du Château and the terrace of Palais Rohan. Subtle and finely timed, the sound design chosen will mix songs in French, English and German without disturbing residents. The playlists will be played randomly from Monday through Thursday, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Cathedral: 133 different songs have been selected, for 6 hours and 15 minutes of music

- Soft music with choice of orchestrations and acoustic instruments
- Classical music, children’s choirs, sopranos and tenors
- Traditional Christmas songs

Broglie: 210 different songs have been selected, for 9 hours and 41 minutes of music

Terrace of Palais Rohan: 90 different songs have been selected, for 4 hours of music

Based on their feedback, we put together a playlist, YOUR own participative playlist. This compilation includes all the greatest Christmas songs which will accompany you during the Christmas festivities. Listen to it now:
