The Christmas Tree

From the 24 of November to the 7 of January 2018, Place Kléber 

The vast Christmas Tree – the 30-metre-tall centrepiece at the heart of the city – is the iconic symbol of Strasbourg, Capital of Christmas.

Each and every year, locals and visitors alike flock to the square to see the lights switched on for the first time.

Place Kléber is transformed into an enchanting, twinkling landscape, with illuminated white snowflakes enveloping the square and instantly evoking the magic of Christmas.

This year’s tree comes from a forest near Mont Donon in the Vosges Mountains.
