Here is our selection of the must-sees during this festive period in Strasbourg.

Visit the different markets, discover our architectural heritage, the local culture and flavours… in a nutshell: experience a unique Christmas in the Alsatian capital.

An enchanting city

Christmas Lights

As Christmas draws closer, Strasbourg dons all its finery.

The streets, houses, sides of churches, windows and balconies twinkle with the light of a thousand candles thanks to the countless decorative elements, one of which is more original than the other.

Place Kléber

The Great Christmas Tree

Miles of garlands of light decorate the streets.

The Great Christmas Tree is the star of the Christmas lights. Proudly standing on Place Kléber, he could almost steal the show from the magnificent Notre-Dame cathedral. Almost!

Art & Crafts Region

Craftsmanship at the heart of Christmas

Discover the excellence of the craftsmen working in Strasbourg.

For a number of years, Strasbourg has been classed as a “Ville et Métiers d’Art” (Artistic cities and trades) city, as recognition for the preservation, promotion and development of the sometimes centuries-old know-how of associations of craftsmen and artistic trades.

(Re)Discover Alsace

The Alsatian Museum

The Alsatian Museum is located in 3 Renaissance residences which are linked by wooden stairs and corridors.

Its 5000 exhibits bear witness to rural life in Alsace in the 18th and 19th centuries. You can discover furniture, traditional costumes, ceramics, agricultural and viticultural equipment, toys, religious art and much more

Feel the Christmas spirit at the docks

Promenade of stars at the docks

The “quai des bateliers” and its magnificent walls are covered in lights for the Christmas period. Let yourself be captivated by its magical light show: fireflies and giant stars will light up your eyes!

From this peaceful space, you will have another perspective of one of the most beautiful views of Strasbourg, the Cathedral, the Palais Rohan, the half-timbered houses and the medieval alleyways...

Solidarity and originality

The OFF-Market

It’s an opportunity to experience the Christmas holidays through mindful consumption.

Here, we recycle, exchange, bargain-hunt, create and invent different, fair-trade, and original Christmas offerings.

Have a walk through the most picturesque quarter of Strasbourg

The Petite France

A visit to the old tannery district "Petite France" in the historic centre of Strasbourg is a must.

Don’t miss out on this certain charm of its half-timbered houses, winding narrow streets and canals that meander through this historic district.
