Strasbourg may be the Christmas Capital but almost all the towns and villages in Alsace host their own Christmas Market and some are certainly worth the trip… So soak up the winter wonderland!
Set off on an incredible trip from Strasbourg to the Haut-Rhin: explore the Riquewihr Christmas Market. This traditional Alsatian village literally dazzles in the festive period: the buildings and monuments are illuminated and decorations amaze children and adults.
You’ll be able to have lunch on-site in keeping with Alsatian Christmas traditions with bredalas, manalas, pretzels and mulled wine or head to one of the gourmet restaurants that the region is famous for!
With stars in your eyes and a full tummy, we’ll head back onto the Wine Route to pass through little Alsatian villages all beautifully decorated for the occasion.
Our bus will then stop in Kaysersberg, to discover this medieval village in its Christmas colors. The authentic and artisanal Christmas market in Kaysersberg traditionally welcomes you all four Advent weekends on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The other days of the week you will find there a concentrate of Alsace: a historic city center filled with charm with beautiful old half-timbered houses, magnificent corner oriel windows, cobbled streets, the river that crosses the city and, overlooking the village, the medieval castle.
Then it’s time to hit the road again to Colmar where different Christmas Markets light up the famous town and create different atmospheres to suit the neighborhoods. Enjoy three hours of free time to explore at your leisure and sample seasonal treats… and a traditional cup of mulled wine too!
Head back to Strasbourg around 7.30pm, taking wonderful Alsatian Christmas memories back with you.
