Strasbourg: the Christmas market that makes Europe dream
For 400 years the Christmas market in Strasbourg has been wearing its best festive clothes to offer us, from November 27, a magical and warm holiday. Before reaching the capital, you will visit the medieval village of Obernai and a factory of mannel and gingerbread.
On Place Kléber stands the majestic Christmas tree. His star sparkles with all its lights. Sublime illuminations embellish the Cathedral Spire and the Kammerzel house, the main attractions of the Alsatian capital. Stroll from the cathedral square to the Gutenberg place without forgetting the Christmas market of the Magi kings on Place Benjamin Zix and kristkindelmarkt of Place Broglie. You will taste with pleasure the mulled wine with sweet spices, the soft mannele or even crunchy bredeles. It is the Mecca of gluttony. We buy gingerbread, honey, barley sugar, love apples. We find everywhere, against the background of bells, the scent of hot chestnuts, spices, and melted sugar.
You will embark on a cruise to la petite France , the former district of millers and tanners. Its half-timbered houses on the quays give it a romantic and intimate atmosphere. Return to your hotel for dinner and overnight
