Strasbourg Capitale de Noël en 1 jour : un concentré d'incontournables
The must-see highlights
Early in the morning…
In the morning, head for Grand'Rue to reach Place Grimeissen. Take the time to discover the Christmas traditions in an unexpected and offbeat way thanks to the "OFF Market". Then walk along the docks, between the half-timbered houses to the Vauban dam. On the dam, you will enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Strasbourg.
Looking for a change of scenery? Stop by Place Gutenberg to discover the guest country. This year Strasbourg welcomes Lebanon and more precisely Byblos, a Christian city in the Middle East, which will reveal its unique charm to you. Most importantly, do not leave without admiring the view of the cathedral from Mercière Street.
For a delicious break, make a detour to the Alsatian Christmas delicacies market, Place du Marché-aux-Poissons and Palais Rohan terrace to taste Alsatian bredele or foie gras. Still hungry? You can enjoy a "tarte flambée" in Rue du Maroquin or a pretzel in Place de la Cathédrale.
During the afternoon
The walk continues along the rue du Dôme to reach Strasbourg's oldest and largest Christmas market in Place Broglie: the Christkindelsmärik. In more than a hundred of stalls, you will certainly find fairy lights, Nativity Scene figures and colorful Christmas baubles to decorate your table for the holiday season.
At nightfall, walk to Place Kléber and its unmissable Great Christmas Tree. The evening ends with a good dinner in one of the traditional Alsatian restaurants of the city centre. Do not leave without having a taste of "choucroute"!
