The Christmas Markets in 1 day: the must-see highlights

Set as bookmark


The days begins with the oldest and biggest Christmas market of Strasbourg : the "Christkindelsmärik" in Place Broglie. 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.

Then, walk along Rue du Dôme to go to the Christmas market in Place de la Cathédrale. Take a stroll between the wooden stalls to discover pretty pieces of crafts such as wooden toys and blown glass candles. Do not leave without admiring the view of the cathedral from Rue Mercière.

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.


In the afternoon, 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.

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"!
