Prepare your stay

From 23 November this year, we invite you to come and savour the magic of our Christmas markets in Alsace. You will be amazed, there is so much choice around us: not only the classic ‘must dos’ like those of Strasbourg, Colmar, Kaysersberg, Riquewihr, Ribeauvillé, Obernai, Haguenau, Mulhouse but also the more local ones with just as much charm if not more. Take part in themed treasure hunts, creative and culinary workshops, enjoy the multitude of concerts of all kinds, organised walks, and admire the nativity scenes and Christmas cribs.
