The traditional markets

Strasbourg’s Christmas Markets are among the oldest and biggest of their kind in Europe, taking over the entire historic city centre. Some locations have even become synonymous with Christmas traditions in the city.

At the Christkindelsmärik (Christ-child market) at Place Broglie, you’ll find regional produce, crafts, traditional Alsatian Christmas decorations and much more besides. Local craft producers’ associations will be on-hand to showcase their wares and their expertise, with plenty to keep you entertained. Head over to a typical chalet to learn the secrets behind traditional producers from Strasbourg and Alsace.

The market outside the imposing Strasbourg Cathedral is yet another iconic symbol of Strasbourg, Capital of Christmas. First held in 1570, it has been delighting people of all ages for centuries. It’s the perfect place to stock up on Christmas gifts and sip a warming hot wine.

The markets embody everything that’s special about Christmas – its traditions and the festive spirit. So if you’re passing through Strasbourg, make sure you don’t miss out!
