Lit up by the many stars that brighten the city and those that shine in the eyes of children and adults and warm their hearts, a number of events have been scheduled from November 25. They take us back to our childhoods, when tales and legends roused our imaginations. “Let us share the magic” together this year in Strasbourg! 

The historic Christkindelsmärik

The Christkindelsmärik tradition began on place Broglie in 1871. Ever since, it has continued to be the heart and soul of the Christmas market.
